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)

Call them every hour 'til it's recovered. DHL is pretty good about finding ****. You're lucky you didn't send it FedEX.

just trying to get this resolved and looking for some help.

i figured there wasn't a lot of cross over, and tonnes of people on here ship their bikes places, probably more than in th road forum.

You could keep constant contact with DHL, Or contact the seller, but I wouldn't know.

if you call the seller, usually they will either refund you the money, or give you another bike. Then they go and sue DHL over the cost.

At least that's how reputable sellers do it....

Did they figure out a way to make them stink less? I remember playing at a golf course that was next to a paper mill and it was so God Awful, I never returned. This was back in the mid-late 90s.

I was driving to Savannah with my mom the other day and I opened the window because I thought she farted.

Turns out that just made the stench worse because it wasn't her.
