Hello everyone,

Our campaign goal is well within reach and it looks like we should reach it by Wednesday.  We have had a fantastic couple days recently, largely because we partnered with Jellop for advertising.  We had previously seen that nearly 5% of visitors to our campaign ended up purchasing, which is an extremely high number.  However, we hadn't done a single bit of advertising!  We quickly realized that with such a high purchase rate, we could afford some advertising, and we saw immediate results when we started advertising.

Now that we know that the goal will be met, it's a great time to refer your friends or up your pledge.  If you'd like to refer people, ask us for a referral link.  We'll associate that link with your backer ID so that when your friends use the link to pledge, you get 10% of their order deducted from your order.

We're also starting to work through the details of the build with our suppliers.  We'll keep you posted on the status of those conversation in the weeks ahead.

So thanks again to everyone.  It's been a fun journey so far and we're not over yet.  The fulfillment will be a lot of fun and we're looking forward to sharing the details with you!



New referral reward program for backers!
6 months ago – Sun, Jun 13, 2021 at 05:53:34 PM

We had an excellent day of pledges yesterday and it's thanks to the referrals of backers.  Since this went so well, we wanted to start a reward program to recognize these referrals.  

For every referral each backer sends to our campaign that pledges, we'll give YOU 10% of their pledge level as a discount against your order (does not include shipping cost).  This means if the person you refer pledges at the $56 level, we'll give you $5.60 off your order.  If 10 of your referrals pledge at the same level as you, your order is free!  Your maximum discount will be the total cost of your pledge, in accordance with Kickstarter rules.  However, if you manage to get 100% of your pledge covered, just increase your pledge to get even more discounts!

To record the referral against your pledge, just ask the people you refer to send us your name and backer number in a message on Kickstarter and say that you referred them.  We will also accept referrals who have already backed, so if your friends supported the campaign already, have them send us your info.

In order to avoid issues, we will only apply the referral rewards after your referrals have paid at the end of the campaign.

Great start! I think we'll make it - with your help

Hi everyone,

Thanks so much for your pledges.  It looks like we are on our way to a successful campaign, but the news cycle is slowing down and we need your help.  Please tell your friends about the campaign and why you are interested in the PSIcle sensor.  Maybe you're a fat tire biker and you want to measure those low pressures with accuracy, or a mountain biker wanting a really quick check if your tire burped, or a commuter who just wants to be able to ride to work conveniently and confidently.  In any case, YOU are the people who understand the use cases.  Please tell your cycling friends why you want this campaign to succeed!  Share the campaign on social media and tell your friends and followers why you're excited about it.

Right now we're looking into further design refinements.  We think we can cut somewhere around 10 mm off the length of the extension, which could reduce the weight and leverage on the valve.  We will follow up with more details as we figure things out.

We're going to start working with the manufacturers we've quoted immediately when it's clear we'll reach the goal.  At that point, we'll have more regular updates of how the rest of the design and fulfillment will look.  

For now, thank you, and please tell your friends!
