Damn! Finally :beer:

I suspect that the first shipment to backers was not more than a handful of bikes, but hopefully now they are past that hurdle they can ramp up and get bikes to many more of...

Latest update is certainly interesting! The guy is a mad perfectionist, and has a solution to every single problem (and more) that I ever had with my current folding bike, but I've gotta be honest...

Mine is a preorder, not backer position. I assume backer numbers would be lower, but apparently the number doesn't correspond to the number of bikes ordered, so who knows? Also, still no update :/ I...

Mine too, and it's a recent change, so probably a result of them working out the final checkout etc. I asked a few months ago if my order number meant that they had sold 1400+ helixes, because I was...

I think he is starting to stop being quite so idealistic and get on track to shipping the bikes. He was talking about a DLC or carbon nitride coating option for the bike a few months ago (probably...
