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)

just ordered from there as well. payed with paypal. no notice on shipping yet, though i did get an order confirmation immediately. Also, there were about 5 or 6 options for shipping, and I chose the cheapest. This is the only reason why I can think of why it's taking this long.

None of these companies stock anything. It is called drop shipping. When you order, they order from their supplier, get it, then they ship it to you.

beware of ordering from companies that drop ship. they don't have any quality control over the picking and packing of your items, and if your order gets messed up (stuff missing, wrong items) it often takes a lot longer (if at all) for them to fix it. i learned that lesson with bikepartsusa.com, who drop ships from JB Importers.
