Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

it's my party and i'll cry if i want to...

After tracking the UPS progress of my Mark V, the day had finally arrived. The clock seemed to move backwards at work today like the last day of school before a grade school summer break. I get home. Wait. Check the tracking...."EXCEPTION." They couldn't find my house. Called UPS, the addresses were correct. Heck, they just delievered here a week ago. Guess I'll have to sit on the front porch all afternoon tomorrow...

yeah, i actually ended up taking off the day that my Mark V was slated to arrive. i woke up extra early and practically kept a vigil by the front window. this was due in part to the fact that it would have been a major pain in the ass to go pick it up at my "local" ups.

my original intent when i called UPS after this fiasco was to see if i could pick it up at the local center instead of waiting until the "same time" tomorrow...apparently that's not an option.

can you go back to the website where you track your package? From that page, at one time, you could request a hold instead of a delivery(good option when you are going out of town).
Once you place the hold, you can go to the center and get your package
