BikesDirect vs. Hurricane IKE

Just wondering how Ike is affecting Mike and the folks at bikesdirect.com as it prepares to devastate Texas... Hoping that they are far enough away from the coastline to escape harm. I know Texas is a huge freaking state, but will Ike affect shipping, materials, import/export, etc?

I thought the bikes I bought from them shipped from Houston.

I doubt customer service will be changed. They'll still provide the same level of customer service they currently do to unhappy customers.

Many Bike Direct bikes are shipped through Katy, Texas, twenty miles west of Houston. Most parts of Katy have electricity and power, but FedEx and UPS are NOT back to normal operations.

Ok I don't get it. There isn't one negative thing in your post about Bikesdirect. Generally you only post about them to slam them.
