    Still waiting on the stuff they shipped out on November 16th. They won't work with me until 28 business days have passed.

    wow damn.

    mine was shipped on the 24th. I'll take my spot in line and wait.

    Who knew some light snow could crush the limeys?

    kensurf, why not?

    i am not in a rush right now, this is when PBK is good. usually things come in a pretty timely manner, just not instantly.
    i ordered brake pads and a tire... thinking about ordering a 700x25 Gatorskin for training at 33 bucks .

    the north of england and scotland were hit by the worst snowfall in decades. roads were a mess. most likely the culprit.

    Yeah, they emailed me back and said "it may be stuck in customs".. I get to pester them some on Monday or Tuesday!

    It's all good, I've ordered enough stuff from them over the years. I was just venting.

    I'm waiting on a couple of items from them too. It's coming up on two weeks. Shipping's free though so I guess I can't complain.

    Mean people are like slinkys. They're really not worth much but still are rather entertaining to watch tumble down the stairs.

    I'm thinking about ordering a bunch of tires/cassette/chain from them.

    I know it's been discussed to hell, but is there any best bang for the buck tires on PBK right now that anyone knows of? Otherwise Ima go with GP4000

    I used to get Rubino Pro Slicks but it looks like they've gone up a bit.

    Be careful with the credit cards on PBK everyone, I recently ordered from there and shortly thereafter had small charges made to my card.

    I usually load up on pro3's when they have the "two pack" blow-outs. Couple it with a 10% discount and free shipping, and I've been paying around $27 a pop. That's actually what I'm waiting on...

    Happened to me 2x. Ordering from PBK falls in the life's too short category (unless you like sharing your personal info with criminals).

    Darn. I just bought some tires and paid by credit card. I'll keep a lookout for problems.

    that is probably what your CC charges for dealing with a foreign transaction... not all CC's do it.

    I received my pedals about a month and a half after I ordered them.
