My offer stands.
I committed the ultimate sin and ignored well documented criticism of local merchant and pre-ordered some alloy wheels for a build. Was told they were about 3 weeks away which suited me ok and they were a good price/spec so pulled the trigger.
Half way through the three weeks I asked for any update on ETA and was brushed off, reminded of the three week estimate and offered as vague ‘I’ll get an update from the factory next week’.
The next week passed with no update and then the three week point hit. I contacted the company repeatedly over the next few days and finally got a response saying ‘wheels aren’t here yet. I’ve emailed the factory and will email them again tomorrow...’
Communication has been polite but the bottom line is the wheels are probably a looooooong way away and I’m not riding the bike while I’m waiting.
What a fuckwit.
Pm’d You mate. Doubt it’s the same place. Mine specialises in wheels mostlyIs there any catchy alliteration in said merchant name? I'm also in the same boat after buying some new brakes at a great price a month ago.
It's the first time I've bought anything from them so I'm willing to give them the benefit of doubt and blame the manufacturer who seem to be making a habit of supply issues.
