What’s pushing the Pint orders back?



  • Shipping now starting in July according to the website, so not an extra 2 weeks. Appalling



  • PLOT TWIST!

    i received a notice from USPS this morning, with a tracking number, showing that something left Future Motion for me yesterday, and will be delivered some time tomorrow (saturday). This is in line with the last expected delivery date i was being shown before they put out the big delay announcement the other day. The FM website is still showing a new tentative shipping date of July 4th for me, so i just don't know what to believe. but suddenly hope springs anew!



  • @Franko I think they ship with FedEx for the boards. USPS would probably be something small/lighter. It's probably a certified letter saying that they're having production issues and please don't sue them for non-delivery. Here's to hoping though! I can't figure out why they would change our dates then jerk us around and send them.



  • @Panglossian yeah, the USPS delivery is confusing -- i would assume FedEx too. i wish i had more info (like size/weight), but there's nothing i can find. i already have a hat and the other swag they sent, so i'm sure it's not that. part of me is wondering/hoping it is the Pint, since i bought the limited edition sage/social club model... maybe they are getting those out first? at any rate, i will keep everyone posted, for sure.

    Maybe an accessory?

    Maybe an accessory?

    hmm, could be, but that would be salt in the wound in a way, wouldn't it? haha. "here's your bumper/rail guard/fender, hope you like looking at it for the next month or so!"



  • @Franko best of luck. Process has been a bit frustrating.

    This is my first crowdfunding effort and i didnt even know i was crowdfunding!!!!



  • @Franko I really hope it’s the Pint, please keep us updated.



  • @Mark-Vlogs definitely will do. it looks like there's a person on OW reddit that has a package coming, too, which is interesting...

  • @Franko I also got a notification. It will be something small and light. It won’t be the pint.
    Probably a “sorry for this taking so long” thing, or best case an accessory but I doubt it. My money is on a Pint sticker. Will know for sure in a couple hours when my mail arrives.



  • I was partially wrong. I did get A Pint, just not THE Pint I have been waiting for. image.jpg



  • @rageouse haha, just got mine, too. came here to update and post my photo as well. my friend said, "WOW, it's a LOT smaller than i thought..." haha : |

  • Well, now I know what’s coming tomorrow. Would have preferred a window sticker for my truck...



  • @Franko

    And what’s the point of this thing? Just an apology for delayed delivery? I want more.



  • @cchevy yep, exactly that. the back of the postcard is an apology and plea to remain patient, because good things come to those who wait. or something like that. i admit the little toy Pint is kind of fun and funny. but still, i want the real thing sooner rather than later : (



  • @cchevy what would have preferred they sent you... other than a Pint?



  • @skyman88 a discount? They’ve had my money for 2.5 months. Accessories, T-shirts, etc.?? A postcard and 20 cent plastic toy is kind of insulting.



  • @cchevy The interest earned from the millions of dollars they’ve had in will be huge, all that and still no tangible product, I’m assuming the Pints that people are raving about have issues? FM keep saying they want the product to be right when it arrives, I guess it’s not ‘right’ yet.



  • @Mark-Vlogs my own sense is that the Pints work great, but the delay is more because of (1) the crush of huge demand and (2) the scale of parts needed to make those orders happen, in combination with (3) the move to a new production facility at the same time. all the correspondence and posts they've made seem to hint at that. they replied to me on a Youtube post i made, replying that there is literally one screw in common between the Pint and the XR, and "engineering and sourcing hundreds of individual components from all over the globe that need to be perfect and all come together at the right time" is a monumental task.

    as for the money thing, yeah, that's a whole other issue. these hats, cups, and toys are nice, but a discount (store credit?) based on the interest of our 2+ month loan would be a more welcome compensation.



  • I just think they should have been upfront at the beginning with regards to the shipping dates. We're all more than just average customers going to get an item off the shelf at the local store. We've been bit by the OW bug and want to see them succeed. I would have gladly still ordered even knowing that it might not come for 6 months. However, I would have probably also ordered another XR so I could have my daughter ride with me. I've been listening to their promises of delivery times and thought we could be patient and wait a little longer.

    I still think that they are misleading people - it says that delivery starting in July on their website. While true, that is not true for someone purchasing one today. I think that is a bad thing to do to people.
