and this week they did Orp. These guys are very fun.
Of course, my Thai comprehension is limited but it seems pretty positive.
If anyone wants to give me a translsation, email me at email@example.com.
Check it out here.
Gregg Kato did a review of Orp during our Kickstarter campaign and he followed up
with a riding review of the production product. Its an awesome review.
He shows our demo video and and Orp’s directions and he uses it on a Mountain Bike
and likes it!
We know Orp is good for for MTBers as you need to alert other riders and runners
on shared trails that you’re coming around that turn.
My only complaints, and this is only because I’m a complainer, are:
1. He calls Orp a light with a horn . We say Orp is a Horn with a light.
2. Orp is a beacon light- (it says so right on the box), a “to be seen light” yet he’s sort of comparing Orp to a ” light the way” light.
Gregg clearly knows its a beacon as he says so several times in the article. Like I said I like to complain.
Overall great review, t hanks Gregg!

Short, sweet and to the Point. Thanks WSJ!
This issue is a two day edition running both Saturday and Sunday so you get
a double dose of Orp goodness.
We provided the Orp photo and the WSJ team tilted it. I wish we had thought of that.

in this prestigious british journal. Clearly Orp is the best of the bunch ( …Ok I’m saying that).

Kent’s review also helped Orp get on Amazon’s review radar as well. So far so good.
Thanks Kent! You can read the whole review here.

A big thanks to DK Rowe of the Oregonian.
This one is follow up article about some of the local Portland crowd funding projects.
Orp made the front page. Thanks to the Kickstarter backers, Orp did pretty well.
— Michael Francis, The Oregonian
It’s really thorough and pretty funny at the end.
Kind of makes us at Orp feel a little flat footed as we need to do a video like this!
— Peter, NYCE Wheels
The blog’s author was an early Orp adopter on Kickstarter.
— Dick David, Suburban Assault
His Orp review is really mostly about the author, of course, but he put some nice pictures of Orp in the piece so I’m returning the favor.
The thing that ‘s cool about AHTBM is that the blog’s author, Stevil Kinevil, is a real bike industry veteran and he doesn’t pull any punches.

This is the website’s self describer and it’s a good curator of cool stuff. We are certainly honored to be recognized.
Same story, they love Orp. Their quote is: ” this thing is Orptastic”. Thanks Collective Loop!
— Orlando Valverde, The Collective Loop
Its a pretty long article (OK, not really), but long story short: they like Orp and say its a must have!
— MJ Staff, Men's Journal
Mr. Schildshorn explains that the bicycle has very quickly become the transportation alternative to the car and that several entrepreneurs have embraced this fact
to make the bike safer or better somehow. Here’s the link and here’s the author.

Here’s a little of waht Jertemy wrote:
“On the other occasions they… well… they popped their head up! The combination between pleasant sound and flashing light is just the perfect culmination of safety needed on a bike. But when we quit pushing the trigger up, and started pulling it down, the quickness of the head turns was much more noticeable. Even the passing cars would tap their brakes as I sounded the horn. It was an amazing experience to say the least.”

but it was totally great to have Orp there. Anchors Carson Daly and Tamron Hall certainly had fun with Orp on the set.

The author rides year round and says if you have the right gear, weather is never an issue.
Of late, he averages 6000 or so miles per year on his bike.
ASC gives Orp a great review and really raises expectations. Thanks, I think.
— Author, All Season Cyclist
had pre-production samples. Here’s the story.
What’s important here is Orp is not only for the road. How many times have you almost run over a runner
on a shared trail? With Orp you can warn runners, hikers and slower rider as you approach blind turns.

Really an excellent article with lots of great graphics! Ok, so the art was all lifted from the Kickstarter campaign. but still, super great.

We were still in the Kickstarter campaign at this point.

Here’s the article. Special thanks to Jonathan Lansey of Loud Bicycle as I think he helped get this story to happen.
The article covers all the innovation happening in making cyclists more visible.

It is super nice of them to to give us high marks for showing some of the design process; although, they did call Orzeck a veteran designer- ouch.

but regardless, we appreciate the positive story.

We don’t care , were just glad to be hear, I mean, here.
— Kevin Rouse, Bike Magazine/Paved Magazine
They covered Orp in this first article during the Kickstarter campaign.
