Alright so two issues have arisen and one is taken care of.
I ordered a cranks set from another websites classifieds, the ad said like new so I figured I would save a few bucks and go slightly used.
They showed up today, and like the ad said the arms and ring are perfect but the Howitzer team BB is pretty much ****ed. The threads are thrashed.
BUT
I got a good deal on the basically new arms so I don't feel too cheated and I just snagged a Howitzer Team BB for 13 bucks from Santa Cruz. The cheapest I can find them elsewhere is 27 for the same 08 model. And 45 for the 09. I
am still happy.

Issue 2. I ordered tires and some how jacked up the shipping address and for some reason they have it set up so they can not change an order once it has been placed online even though they don't have record of it yet they can't stop the ball rolling. The person I talked to on the phone was as helpful as she could be and said she would do everything she could to have it shipped to my billing address instead of here at school other wise the tires would get to Lawrence and the PO would be like WTF and send them back and I would have to start all over again. I guess we will see what happens with that but I can't be mad at anybody because its my own fault for not double checking

PS: I know there are no details about what or where its coming from but I will explain that later.

Maybe eclectic was a bad word, I just haven't seen much about them and it doesn't seem like anybody wanted to take a chance on them so I figured I would because they were stupidly cheap.

Well it seems that I may have been a little too excited when I started this thread. The tires shipped USPS today and it was told 7-12 business days... Also I haven't heard any word form Santa Cruz about my BB. Kinda sucks but what is one to do?

****. So if its not one thing its another. My BB showed up in my home town today. Awesome I am not even annoyed with SC anymore because they held up there end and 13 bucks for the howitzer team is a screamin deal. Plus I have somebody else to be pissed at now.
On the 31st I won an auction for a pair of new Jack****s on e-bay for 16 bucks. The description of the auction was for the JS primos with replaceable pins. This turned out to be wrong. Alright still a good deal at 16 buck for the standard JSs. I didn't hear anything from the seller (alpinedesigns) so I shot him an email asking when he would ship. I got the reply ASAP. On the 9th I got the generic ebay email "Your item has shipped". Cool.
Not.
Today (the 14th) I got an email from paypal telling me that shipping labels had just been printed for this order. So 15 days after the auction ended he printed the shipping labels and this is after telling me that they had already shipped.

This maybe the first negative feedback I leave for anybody in 4 years on ebay.
