The Chainlink

I'm sorely tempted by these in-funding-stages crowd-sourced jeans:

http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/ryb-denim

After shipping and converting for CAD to USD, the "boutique" package comes to about $900 for 12 pairs of pants, aka $75 each aka much cheaper than the other options.  Are there any two (or even three) other women who would be interested in splitting an order with me?   My mother has a registered business number we can use (which is required for the boutique order)

Hopefully people say yes because I want these pants so much.  But I don't think I've ever paid more than $50 for a pair of jeans, and even that was a lot for me.

HEY! I am late to this party! But i heard about the Ryb Denim Jeans too.  They look awesome!

Since this seems like a pertinent place to post this annoucement: This Spring a Bike shop that carries Jeans like this is coming to Chicago.  It's a shop built by and for women cyclists by me (one of the OG chainlink members) and my bike BFF Annie.  (she's also on here)

It's called BFFBIKES and we have an under construction website up: bffbikes.com 

for the time being bookmark that page.  IF YOU HAVE THINGS YOU THINK WE SHOLD CARRY for the love of god let us know and we will see what we can do. email us at bffbikes@gmail.com

Finally!

New Bike Shop...Yay! And By Women...That Is Quite Exciting. Good Luck!

Thanks Ladies! hope to see you there in March. 

Woo woo. Need size 33 cycling shoes for me!!

WHAT IS GOING ON WITH THIS?! Anyone? I sent my measurements and was on the list for a pair. I haven't paid and my private messages have gone unanswered. If anyone knows the status, please post here! Thank you ladies!

Good news!  An update!

https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/ryb-denim#activity

Today I was gently reminded that I haven't been as on top of my communication with you all as I should be. Thank you! 

I wanted to let you all know how incredibly grateful I am to be able to move forward with this project, and make it into a viable and real business that will be able to bring more products to you out there to make your riding lifestyle more comfortable, functional, and complimentary! 

Although the production took much longer than expected, 3 months is something I never wanted nor could predict, but I promise that it will be well worth the wait. I am so excited to report that the first of 500 pairs will be rolling out next week! This is so incredible to me! I can't put into words how amazing it feels to see it go from an idea, to a supported idea, to a real tangible and life-changing product! 

I can't thank you all enough for your generosity with patience and understanding. I hope that you hold faith knowing that as a single owner doing this all by myself [for now] I am doing absolutely everything I can to get these out the door and into your lives. It has been a learning curve beyond anything I could actually imagine, and it will all be worth it in the end. I've grown so much over the last few months, and take everything to heart, and really do appreciate knowing that there are so many of you that still love this product and still can't wait to get them on and get out on the road!

I will be doing my best to update more frequently from here and on facebook. Make sure to go and "like" the page if you haven't already,www.facebook.com/RYBDenim

If your friends are wondering how to get a pair of these for themselves because they missed the campaign, please let them know it's not too late! There are a select number of stores carrying them across Canada and the United States, with growing numbers in the future, but if you don't live in a city that will have them now then I'd be happy to accommodate getting them to others! Email works best for this: info@rybdenim.com

Thank you again and I will be back with more updates later this week on delivery starts and what RYB Denim will be doing in the future!

Have a great week everyone!

Best,

Chandel Bodner
