    Gotta order with USPS.
    I hate having to sign for stuff.
    I'm never home in the middle of the day.

    I ordered a set of wheels over 2 weeks ago from my LBS through Phil Wood, and I haven't heard even as much as a ship date on them. It's torture indeed....

    Well, ****. I don't give a ****.

    Yeah, whenever I order from UPS I always call and meet the driver on route.
    Makes it much easier.
    I bet you can do the same with FedEx.

    I'm waiting on Tony @ IRO to give me the call to let me know my bike's ready to be shipped. Waiting sucks.

    I try not to order things online just so I don't go through the agony of waiting. But when I do I send it to the office so there's always someone there. ups and fedex both suck ass.

    if you don't grease your quill you might get wierd noises eventually, and the noise is a scary metal moaning.

    USPS sucks because if they do require signature, they come to your house once and then you have to go pick it up. at least fedex/ups try 3 times. on the other hand, the local post office is usually a whole lot closer than the fedex depot

    I got the final part of my drivetrain - sugino 75 crankset - right before work today. I think it's made me more relaxed. Well, that and the quickie I squeezed off as soon as I saw the 75's are built like a brick house.
