    HOPE Stans wheels from Wiggle-how long???

    How long did it take you to get them?

    I ordered the Arch's on July 4, I Emailed Wiggle and they said that they haven't heard from Hope on these yet.

    I'm thinking about canceling it and ordering a crest front and flow rear through Merlin cycles, who has these wheels in stock.

    I and two of my friends have ordered wheels and other gear from Wiggle. Less than a week from the UK to Montana in every case.

    Looks like Wiggle's price on that wheelset has gone up about $50, so if you can wait it out you get a great deal.

    still 'Awaiting Processing' from Wiggle on my order placed on July 2 for a Hope Hoops Pro2 Evo MTB Wheelset Black ZTR Arch EX - 29er.

    Getting frustrated! I also ordered the DT RWS axle converions for these hubs, so I don't want to cancel and have to return the other parts I already have. I will wait it out a bit longer to see what happens.

    I also ordered early July when it said delivery in 3 days. Sent a snotty email after being told it would be early August which is disappointing. It's still not been processed on their site.

    This, except I did flow ex front and rear (probably overkill for my size).

    Hate to hear you guys are having trouble with wiggle shipping. Ordered my hope hoops on a Friday. They showed up to my home (Arizona) the next Thursday. Less than a week coming from the uk is definitely acceptable in my book.

    Ordering from the UK, and Wiggle is sometimes hit or miss. I've ordered stuff from them that got to me quicker than if I'd ordered from Jenson or somebody stateside, and then some orders I've had have taken three weeks or a month to arrive. Still love Wiggle though.

    I ended up ordering a set of crests for my wife, which ill ride till I get the arch's from wiggle. I bought the crests from merlincycles.c om, straight pull rear, regular spoke front (only because that's what they had in stock).

    Took 1 week.

    Wiggle is blaming hope for the delay.

    I think the issue here is that they were stocking the Crest 29er wheels because, well, Europe is behind the times in terms of 29ers, but they got enough requests for Flows and Arch that they have them listed, but don't keep in stock and instead get them from Hope once they're ordered and probably wait a week or so to make the order worthwhile. Curious if Merlin does free shipping to the US? If not the price isn't that great as shipping will add at least $50 to the price, but I guess if you get them almost right away and need them that's better.

    Understandable. Wiggle doesn't actually have these wheels in stock, they get orders, and pass them on to Hope. I'd guess that since Hope's right there, this goes for any Hope products they sell also.

    Did you order a set with the Arch EX rims? I think that may be the delay here with some orders..

    I got a pair of Hope/ArchEX from CyclesportUK about two months ago. Shipping to St. Louis, MO from the UK took 6 Days. I did get a $19.something customs Fee from UPS but still cheaper than anyone in the US

    Dude, I'd most definitely cancel the order with Wiggle who have clearly dropped the ball on this and place your order elsewhere with a shop who will get you a set of wheels in a reasonable time frame.

    I would like to, but if I can get them for that price then it is a LOT cheaper than anywhere else. Right now I'm riding a pair of Crests that I bought for my wife, but I paid a bit more for them. The rear is straight pull though. Hopefully I don't jack them, I weigh 195 lbs and I ride agressive XC. I haven't jacked a wheel in 12 or more years though. I wonder if I should go with the flows though, I am building a Transition Trans am, which I'm hoping will allow me to do more agressive riding!
