someone actually answered the phone?

last year i called every day for a week trying to order a frame and nobody ever picked up the phone.

and it's not as though i was calling in the evening or whenever, i tried at various times throughout the day during normal business hours.

I have an older Kelly Knobby-X with 1" headtube. I've never had any issues with the bike or dealing with Chris.

I would buy another Kelly if I had the need no questions asked.

Ps- don't get upset if someone answers the phone. It's a small business and if it is a building week would you want someone stopping in the middle of a braze to answer a call? Try email it has worked best for me in the past.

Yo Fore, you obviously never left a message. I always return my phone calls.

FYI, there are only two of us in the shop cranking out all the product that we do in a year, so, im usually in the powdercoating area all day were you cant even hear the phone or in the production shop in the middle of a meeting or in the middle of building something.

The point -- I rely on voice mail to capture messages, so I can be professional and return phone calls. No message, no return phone call. Its sorta like asking me to read your mind.

have a nice day.

CK

Anybody knows if there are any dealers left with Knobby X's on inventory? Obviously, I realize that Kelly unfortunately went out of business.

I ordered a pair of take-offs today and got a response from Chris directly. They still have some stock left, I would order what you want now.
