OMG Madeline please forgive me-- I totally meant to include this and I forgot:

Aw c'mon folks.... it's not like anyone with a brain didn't plainly see she was promoting her own product here... let's not drive this poor struggling entrepreneur off before she's had a chance to redeem herself buy buying paid advertising on chainlink.

If you are that gullible, you should sign up. Let us know when you got that SON hub. ;)

Guys stop being unfriendly to business or she'll flee to Indiana.

There could be a dozen SON dynamo hubs in one of those boxes. You don't know!

Does this thing only ship in a standard cardboard box?

I'd be willing to pay extra to have a nice box show up at my door.

Oo la LA!

 I am really excited about this one it has an international taste to it as well :) 

Exciting old box services...

She even got us to tell her what swag to sell. Brilliant!

That right there is pro level damage control:

 

Flattery (you guys are good)

resell (join us then!)

appreciation (Thanks for all your support)

Anticipation (Can't wait for more of you to join!)

Community Building (We are going to get more people...on bikes in Chicago, Chain-link friends!)

Nebulous appeal to future generations (especially young people)

 

still not joining but this is way way way more graceful than your initial appeal.  Go get 'em.

You guys are good :)  But hey at 62 sign ups from this -- some of you guys are definitely loving this !! Keep it coming! Its going to be a great service and you can join us then! 

 

Can't wait for more of you to join! Thanks for all your support Chain-link friends! We are going to get more people (especially young people) on bikes in Chicago, you'll see!

Am I cynical when I read that as "I will sell you made in China crap"?

hey you got it half right ! Well the China part ... 

The service will be offering a handful of sponsored trips to cycle the Great Wall of China - Among others

All that for $24.95? Where do I sign up?

Let me also take a moment to apologize to Daniel G for calling him gullible. If you manage to sell a trip to the Great Wall of China for $24.95, I am sure that SON hub will be in a box sooner or later...

While we're at it, can I put in a plug for a Shinola Runwell? We are talking commuting after all, no? Seems very doable for $24.95.

I don't recall many bikes at the Great Wall of China. Perhaps they were hiding behind the Starbucks.

I thought it was kind of obvious she was the one behind it with her trying to hard enthusiasm and folksy appeal.

Madeline maybe you should be more open about your relationship with this venture. Just a thought.

JoLondon - and Chainlink Friends! My relationship to this venture is more than anything market research and seeing how the community would respond to this. I am not in any way shape or form collecting money from you (not until I have my paid for advertising in Chainlink ;) ) Just thought I'd get some feedback from our community. So far you have been great! If this is going to be built in Chicago why not start with this awesome Chicago community that you have already established. Thats why we are here right? Support each other and furthering cycling and cycle enthusiasts in Chicago?
