I know that was nuts! Forgive me to say that I think cooler heads prevailed in the end anyway.
Don’t you see what happened now in retrospect?
Crowd funding can be tricky but the hysteria when they started shipping was partially fueled by social media and all the competitor influence. The “tail is waging the dog” on this enertion forum too. It was addicting like a reality show. I had to check in everyday to read the blogs. Honestly Misti musT be a ninja to take all those hits. Customer service jobs must suck!
When the hysteria hit, it was too easy to be mad or scared so it blew up. This young demographic was particularly impatient for a crowd funding venture like a new electric skateboard to hit the market with out all the heavy stuff under it as it was known for .
I kind of compare the Marbel hysteria to a “run on the bank”.
If you don’t remember what that is, Remember in the old christmas movie “Its a wonderful life” when the town caught wind that the bank was struggling it caused big fear and everyone in town went to the bank to pull out their life savings. Naturally they were scared but if you pulled out too soon old man Potter would get your deposits and then you would really be screwed with no safety net. Well that is literally what happened. So they slowed down and personally handled each case one by one. I never lost communication even though Misti would tease me more than a prom date.
The name of the game for happiness as a rider is competition, the more the better. Literally everyone has a shot at the title in this sport.
Here is a short clip of the movie scene classic that helps explain what I think happened with Marbel as they had to explain your investment.
Now old man Potter’s got your money.
I guess at this stage of my life I expect delays because that is life as I realize it.
I had to send it back a couple of times but it is so good that I was just pissed it took two weeks to get back.
Just give me those 100 milly wheels.
i should have signed up here sooner.
