Sorry to say, if a shipper is told from the transporter that it will be 5 business days and the transporter messes up, it is the transporters fault. The shipper will most likely do their best to rectify the situation if you contact them. My company ships about 3,000 packages a day, total headache when a UPS train derails or a truck breaks or like your case gave to the post office or customs. Do you live outside of the 48 continental or in a very small rural town that would cause logistical delays? One of my customers always complained his packages took too long to deliver via FedEx, UPS, USPS and courier; turns out he lives in a swamp and his deliveries are brought in by air boat... Contact the shipper and they will probably do something like give you back your shipping cost or a credit.

Wow, you said all that without insulting me. I hold no ill will towards Nashbar or UPS. I was just disappointed with the entire process and spoiled by Amazon Prime.

Lezyne Trigger Drive CO2 inflator to replace the cannister-style CO2 inflator that I've been using for years. It is quite tiny and frees up lots of space in my seat bag.

Hahaha. It is on the big side, but it is sure roomy! I fit all my stuff with ease(tube, levers, CO2, patches, knife). I was going to get a new one for this bike but never got around to it.

^^^Nioce Crumpton,


Did the LW graphics come blacked out or did you do that yourself?

coppercook62 07-30-14 05:29 PM

coppercook62 07-30-14 05:29 PM

new saddle "astute skycarb sr" tryout time....didn't really need it but then biketiresdirect had it half-price special last week, and obviously i have impulse control issues...if anyone cares, i'll report if it meets the marketing hype expectations...but I can say it's at least 15 grams over advertised weight...

Cannondale high-vis jersey, Canari shorts (FINALLY a 2nd pair of bike shorts), Finish Line citrus degreaser, and a Nashbar spoke wrench, all on Nashbar's 72% off sale, adding up to $51 so I got it all shipped free as well.

Update...cleaned the chain last night, after 300km (+/-) the black is gone on the drive side but the red still looks like new.


OT...and I bought a new white POC OCTAL yesterday, raced with it today and I like it :thumb:

I tried that helmet and really liked the fit, but it was a little too expensive and a little too ugly to get me to pull the trigger.
