Cool, I'll just hold off then. Thanks!

What's your current situation for taking orders and shipping stuff ? Would it be better to wait until after your move before ordering anything ? I'm talking in-stock stuff here.

We'll be closed from Tuesday to Thursday of this coming week because we'll be visiting family in Vermont so any orders placed then will be shipped as soon as we get back.

As far as the move goes, it's going to be a few weeks before we'll be in our new space because we need to have some plumbing work done and because our building is in the historic district, there are a bunch of hoops to jump through at City Hall regarding permits and such - but we'll be running as usual up to and throughout the entire process.

Yeah, well since USPS is closed tomorrow, you won't be able to ship until you return anyway. Also, USPS will be closed next Monday for the same reason.

Scrod, saw you have 722ts frames on sale again. Do you know the geo for the 61cm size, haven't seen it on your site or leaders. I know I've seen it somewhere here before but can't seem to locate it =/

Scrod, Placed an order on Monday night(assuming you wouldn't ship until you're back from Vermont), but I received a shipping notification, but still just says "Electronic Shipping Info Received"(which isn't unusual for RG packages for some reason). Just curious if it was actually shipped, or if you just packaged it, and it will leave your facility when you return? Thanks!

Angie got it out the door right before we left town. Whether or not USPS actually scanned the barcode is an entirely different story....

Great, thanks! I don't care much about the tracking, just wanted to know if it actually left. Most times your packages will arrive in 3-4 business days, so I know about when to expect it. It seems like your local post man/office sucks particularly bad at scanning packages in though.

My local USPS is the same way. My wife sells handbags/jewelry she makes online and I could probably count on one hand how many times USPS has actually scanned the package for tracking. It's frustrating having to explain it to customers and sometimes they don't want to believe you =/

USPS has to be one of the most mismanaged companies in the world. Everyone stateside has to use them for standard stamp mail (not a complaint, simply a benefit), they already have drivers in neighborhoods as it is (so delivering a package is no extra inconvenience when they're filling up my mailbox with junkmail, they've fooled a million ppl with the 'if it fits it ships' envelopes and packages and I've never been in one that wasn't grossly understaffed. On top of all that that somehow manage to bleed money ever year and have to make cutback after cutback. It's truly astonishing.

So true, the sad part about is the alternatives aren't that much better. UPS & Fedex ship packages with good tracking but are much more expensive and letters are laughably overpriced compared to USPS. My dad worked 15 years for Fedex and also ran a mail order business, one that he later retired from Fedex to do full time and never not once shipped an item with Fedex. Our regular UPS driver gave him hell all the time about it but he said the policies and theft/corruption he worked with while there he would never use them.

I've had way more issues with UPS and Fedex than I've ever had with USPS, for what it's worth. USPS probably loses money because it has a lot more overhead than the other two, thanks to having locations pretty much everywhere. I'm happy having tax dollars spent on sustaining that level of convenience, frankly.

ty sir, let me know. whether I do a novatec build is starting to hinge a bit on whether I can get the a23s I want.

you said you do custom velocity build kits, just can't list them all due to the amount of them. I'd be interested on the price of an a23 to novatec with black laser spokes and silver nipples. I know you probably can't get your hands on silver hubs, but if it makes sense to do an all retro-g order I may just compromise and get black hubs.

bringing back that wheelgoods coupons for the new year would be awesome too

Hey Scrod, do you guys have a recommended hub for building up 24 or 28 hole KinLin xr-270s? I'm looking to build up a training/racing wheelset on a budget thats lighter than my stock Kilo wheels.

Because we don't have a way of getting Novatec hubs in anything but 32h, I'm going to refer you to our friends at BDop.

Don't be afraid of the international shipping. They're pretty fast and the rates are decent.

The new 722 is going to be a limited edition, right? I'm considering leader for my next frameset, but I don't like the cutout.

I'm pretty sure Leader will continue making the standard version as well as the Heritage Edition.

WHY must I live in Canada shipping kills the deal for the frames 95$ for shipping. It's almost tempting to drive down to your shop and buy the frame directly
