SO, that's likely what's up. Sorry to raise the alarm, but I guess I have to contact them on the phone or via email! Hope you find this information useful. I was in a panic! I don't know where else I can get my fave triple butted spokes. I will have to ping him with my order. Sheesh I am feeling so wound up with worry I think I'm gonna go build a wheel to de-stress..

Ah I always called it de-stressing, but I was taught by an Irishman. You're right, most people say stress-relieve, don't they. You missed the one about pinging and the one about being wound up!!

Sorry I gave away my spoke puns, the tension was killing me..

There must be stress involved with wheel-building; when I was getting my Schwinn Factory training at their facility in N.J. back in the Eighties, we were specifically told that their method allowed you to stop at any point to take a coffee break and be able to pick up right where you left off.

One would think that the real question with Yojimbo's is "Do they still feed human hands to stray dogs?"
