11 Days Left In Our Kickstarter Campaign!
There are eleven days left in our Kickstarter campaign, which ends on Friday, August 10th at 10:39pm PDT. After Friday 8/10, our team will go into production and be placing firm orders for hardware. If you are looking for a reason to get your Faraday…
“That’s the beauty of the Porteur, you’re hardly aware that the bike is pushing you along until you’re zipping around at 20mph with minimal physical exertion.” —Engadget.com
“…an e-bike that even cyclists could love” —Bill Strickland, Editor, Bicycling Magazine
“gorgeous“—Jonathan Maus, Bikeportland.org
We have been overwhelmed by the scope of interest in the Porteur, including over 30,000 visitors in the last eight days to faradaybikes.com from around the world and nearly 40,000 views of our Kickstarter video.
A couple of the Faraday team members were in Portland, Oregon, last weekend to meet with Kickstarter backers and provide test-rides of the bikes. The trip was a great success, and we offer a hearty thanks to Walnut Studiolo and Clever Cycles for hosting Faraday.
With a barrage of enthusiastic emails from around the world, Faraday is proud to now offer shipping to Canada and Mexico, and will be accepting reservations on international orders for the next round of bicycles after our Kickstarter bikes have been delivered. If you would like to reserve your place in line for the first internationally-shipped Porteurs, please sign up here. Signing up before August 10th reserves your Porteur for the reduced price of $3,500 USD. International shipping charges are not included in this price. Deposits will be accepted after the conclusion of our Kickstarter campaign.
The Winning Color
With an overwhelming majority of the vote, the winning color combination is British Racing Green! Thanks to all who voted. We will send all backers a survey for each owner’s size, color, and component preference at the conclusion of the Kickstarter campaign.
Thank you all for your enthusiasm, interest, and support.
Adam & the Faraday team
