Your not going to sleep a wink tonight, are you?zach.scofield said:Boss says tomorrow is the day. God I hope so. Picture thread to follow. New wheels should be here next week sometime. Bar and stem to follow as well as a new saddle and seatpost possibly.
I feel your pain. I called my LBS last Friday to let them know I was coming in on Saturday to order my F3. They called Felt to check on availability of size 54 and 56. Felt verified that they had both available and ready to ship, so the shop put a hold one of both sizes, since they hadn't fit me yet. Saturday, we did the fitting, and determined I needed the 54. Monday, the shop placed the order, and indicated they should have by Thursday (yesterday).zach.scofield said:looks like my long weekend is going to be without F5. Shipment didnt show up today.
Mine is still not here either, but I haven't been waiting so long, really. I'm kinda surprised at the seeming inability of Felt to predict how long it's going to take to ship a pretty large box a known distance. Distribution these days isn't exactly Rocket Surgery.zach.scofield said:My bike was supposed to have shipped 3 thursdays ago(as of tomorrow) but apparently EP paperwork takes longer.
Realizing you may not want to stir the pot too much, since this is an EP, but seeing how you are closer to the manufacturer than most of us...what is Felt saying? To me (and I have a very, very thin, almost non-existant BS filter :aureola: ) it either shipped or it didn't, and if it shipped, there would be a bill of lading, if coming LTL freight, or a tracking number if coming by UPS, or FedEx. Maybe they are using USPS -- they can't even successfully track a Express Mail to the IRS. Either way, it's no way to treat a customer. EP or not.zach.scofield said:Same.
Well, looks like I got lucky. My F3 must have come in yesterday, as I got the call from my bike shop that as soon as they install the new crank (going with compact), it'll be ready to go! I'm picking it up on Saturday. New wheels are still not ready (who thought red spoke nipples would take so long to come in?!), so I'll just have to be gentle with the stock rims.Don4 said:Here's hoping both yours and mine come in next week...your first!
zach.scofield said:My boss called Felt tuesday. Bike still hadn't shipped from them yet but he got it shipped(so Im told) after my boss had a small fit over the phone w/ his rep. New campy groupo was ordered today I believe (was supposed to have been, was in class all afternoon so I dont know for sure) and wheels should be here this week. Hopefully it'll all come together by early next week.
