Financial Contribution

If you contribute financially to the project I will eventually be distrubuting proprietary information relating to it and will be sending some to you in accordance with your contribution. These objects will be decided in the future, but will include things like portfolio on the design including glossy photos, mention on the Donor Honor Roll here, or even a personal visit and/or ride with the completed bike. These will roughly follow what the Kickstarter contribution rewards were.


Make a donation through Dwolla

Dwolla is a cheaper, cleaner and simpler competitor to Pay Pal. Dwolla also supports recurring payments, you just have to manually select them, they don't offer buttons for them yet. Dwolla charges less per transaction and so gets more of the money you contribute to the bike project. Pay Pal also holds your money for 30 days.
Re-curring payments of $10, $20, $50 / month will be the most helpful to the project. See how to set them up on Dwolla here
