Can not wait to get one of these! However, slightly sceptical that with the demand seen so far that the delivery date of July 2016 can be met. Can you confirm details of VAT implications into the UK? Still not clear. Thanks, Ben

@mil5om We have an internal goal of 1000-2000 bikes. We're working together with a shipping company to reduce the cost. Expect the VAT to be between 100-200 pounds.
@raggylau thanks Raggy. It might be worth making clearer on the Kickstarter page as it is an unexpected cost. Another thing that could do with clearing up is the non inclusion of the light. I unfortunately believed it was included, as have others.

@mil5om The rear light is integrated. And we decided to include the front light (see the updates). :-)

This bike looks sick (in a good way)! And the price point could give the traditional manufacturers a real headache if the product takes off. What I like most about the concept is that it has the potential to disrupt both manufacturers AND smart accessory providers. I bought a $2500+ Cannondale about 5 years ago when I first got into cycling. Since that time I have added Wahoo Speed and Cadence Sensors and use my Basis Peak smart watch to track my Heart Rate out on rides or when training in doors. I use Strava to bring all the sensors together. I LOVE that you have integrated all of the SMART tracking technology directly into the bike. That's huge for the beginner who wants the data/analytis but does not know what they need to make it all work.Out of curiosity, what is the compatibility like for streaming HR tracker? Anything BLE / ANT+? I'll be watching this product closely as it comes to market this summer and will definitely keep it in mind for my next bike purchase.

@paulbleier Thank you! About the compatibility for the HRM: ANT+ when we ship out our bike in July. Later you can also connect via bluetooth through our own app.

@raggylau great to hear! In the meantime a friend and I are looking into the Speedforce product. Smart idea to give cyclists an opportunity to retrofit. When do those start shipping?

@raggylau Great need to speak the CFO at home and plant some subliminal Father's day gift ideas ;)

@raggylau One last question. Will speedforce have BLE support or will that also be coming later in the year through the app?
