ShareRoller Kickstarter Unsuccessful

Unfortunately, Jeff Guida's ShareRoller Kickstarter campaign was unsuccessful.  However, Jeff was able to secure funding from another source and is going ahead with production.  He published a website dedicated to the ShareRoller at:

If you are interested in pre-ordering, you can do so on this site.  The basic range (12-mile) battery unit is going for $1095 and the extended range (20 miles) for $1395.  Those of you who pledged on Kickstarter should have gotten a message with a special link to pre-order at the original Kickstarter price for a limited time.

ShareRoller is live on Kickstarter

ShareRoller, the electric drive motor from the previous post, is now live.  Here is the link to check it out:

The kickstarter page has a video where you can check out the video of the ShareRoller.  It's kinda hard to wrap your head around this product until you see it in action.  You'll also see a lot more pictures of it on the shared bikes, the Xootr scooter, and of course a Brompton.

I asked Jeff if the Brompton adapter will cost extra.  He said they will be since each one will be 3D printed, and would probably cost about $95 unless there is demand for a lot of them.  If there is a lot of demand, he can have them made, which would make them cheaper.
