What would you do if it has been two weeks, and still no bikes, helmets or back wheel?


EDIT: This is my first time buying from this LBS, let alone buying a mountain bike and helmets.
i work in shipping/receiving for a huge online bike shop so i can tell you one of two things happened. No supplier takes that long anytime we order from any of our suppliers, KHS, BTI, QBP, Seattle Bike Supply etc....your talking bikes so its probably a bike company not a supplier, but anyway they are all actually super fast because they need to get the shops product when they need it. So he either didn't get your order in right after you placed it and sat on it for awhile or whatever supplier/bike company was out of stock. considering that you ordered bikes, and two separate components not related to those particular bikes, id guess the wheel/helmets are coming from a supplier and the bikes are coming from the bike company and since neither have came in yet my guess is that he didn't take care of your order fast. i would go ask him if it has been shipped yet and id ask for the tracking number just to get the pressure on him so that you have proof its coming and that it has infact been ordered.

thats assuming there generic products some specialty stuff like some of the Chris King line and ENVE parts that are usually not stocked and made to order.

I did ask for a tracking number, and he said "It won't get your bikes here any faster". There isn't any specialty stuff: Jamis Nemisis 650 sport(he said it was in his shop, just not put together yet), Kona Mahuna, and Kona Splice.

I can live without the helmets and back wheel not being here on time because I don't have to ride my bmx bike, and I can get a helmet anywhere. It's just kinda hard to go riding with your family when you don't have the bikes.

I'm giving it until the end of today, and then on Monday (He's closed Saturday and Sunday) I'm going to talk with him in person. If nothing is resolved, I'll ask for a refund or I'll go to the credit card company. Thanks for all of your input.

This was my first mountain bike and I freaking love it, I've been nothing but happy with the way it's performed out of the shop.

The only thing i've done is added a niterider light and some ODI lock on grips.

I've done about 180 miles on it so far and it's performed flawless, although my cables have stretched some and need adjustment but that's normal.

A bike store closed on Saturday? That should have been a sign right there to stay away.

Rubber Soul. Herb Bauer is ok and I haven't done much at Steven's. They seem good, their shop feels like a warehouse/box store type but they are home owned or what ever you call it. Each has their benefits, but I feel Rubber Soul is the best. They are on Blackstone and Nees

Thanks for the info! I'll be in Fresno on Wednesday and will try to check them out.

Starting the 3rd season on my Fuel EX9, and I finally got curious enough about why the Fox F-Series fork was not using all the travel and not as plush as I thought it should be. I remembered reading/hearing about the air chambers of some having fluid in them. Decided to check, so I let the air out and popped the top off and there was like 2 inches of fluid in the air chamber! WTF? No wonder it didn't feel right.

Now I am curious about the oil levels, but about to rebuild it anyway.

Are you going to rebuild your fork yourself? If do use the Enduro Seals for the rebuild.

It's a 2011 model, F-Series F120 with FIT damper, no DRCV. Frame is actually an early 2012 model, but with the 2011 components.

I am about 200 lbs with gear, and I have been running 70-75 psi, which I thought was strange, way low for my weight. I have 85 psi in there now and it feels way more plush and sag is about right.

I will be doing the rebuild myself. I already ordered the Fox kit this time around, but will try the Enduro seals next time. I am meticulous about keeping them clean and oiled, so they are in good shape still.

I thought I was out of luck to try the 11spd but now i guess i would only have to lose the 3x10 and maybe try 1x11 or 2x11 with that 42t. Would love to hear the feedback on the climbing ability with the 42t and your chainring up front compared to 3x10 or 2x10 when you try it out!

there are a couple different options for the 42 tooth cog. Oneup, Wolftooth, and e-thirteen. The onep is $100, but comes with a 16 tooth cog for easier shifting. The wolf tooth is $89, and the e-thirteen is $69. The only reason I went with one up was the extra cog, . Have not had a lot of trails where I need to use the big cog, but you can tell the difference in power when you spin, but, alas, you can tell the loss of speed. Not that I am worried about speed, lol. That was only after one ride,however. Would recommend a 1x10 with this setup, it only cost me $125, that was the cassette, and a new chain.

I am running the one up but it didn't come with the 16 tooth sprocket. I better check with the lbs.

I didn't see where it listed a 16 t was included. The wolf comes with a longer b set screw. I pulled the 15 tooth sprocket per the recommendation of the lbs as they had found that the shift seemed smoother.
