I need some advice, I used to ride as a younger pup and now in my mid 40s. I love a certain manufacture and found one in my buget and purchased it. I paid a week ago and the bike still has not shipped out? I have been in good contact with the bike shop but excuses still get in the way of shipping the bike out to me. I have a tracking number but it still has not been picked up from the shop. I also understand people need time to break down and pack a bike but this is starting to scare me a bit?

i have sent what I think will be my last email to the owner and I am going to cancel my order if it doesn't get shipped out today!

what are your thoughts, should I wait longer or not? I think I got a good deal on the bike.

frustrated.

a week is plenty of time unless the seller is away on vacation (or similar) and clearly communicated his intentions.

if it was a fantastic deal, i might press the seller to ship immediately or face an ebay problem report.

if it wasn't, i might simply ask the purchase to be cancelled.

Yes, good feedback, every time I send an email I get a returned email from them. Like right now they stated they were at FedEx, It was closed so they will check back in an hour. If it doesn't go today I can go somewhere else.

This bike shop isn't in Utah is it? I bought a Look 566 from an ebay bike shop based in Utah and had a similar experience. It can take a few days to pack it up and ship but they should be communicating the process with you.

In my experience, they said they'd ship it by a certain day, that day came and went and no tracking #. Emailed them and they said they got busy and would ship it within the next few days. Still no word, so I called and spoke with the someone at the store and they said the guy who handles eBay sales was out of the office for a couple days. When he finally got back to me, they had sold it in the store while he was out. Tried to sell me a larger size but I declined. Got a refund but they were slow even doing that, I had to file a dispute with PayPal b/c they were taking their time, took 2 weeks to get my money back.

Sounds like your dealer is better than this one though. And you are definitely covered with PayPal if something does happen.

Tracking came thru and it is shipped. I have not been on a road cycle in many years, I used to ride every day and am looking forward to getting back on the saddle again.
