    Nashbar Frame Sale 7-20-2012 to 7-22-2012

    Nashbar has some sales on certain GT frames at the moment. Certainly not as a great deal as those from last year, but still great deals nonetheless.

    Nashbar - Frames Blowout

    These nashbar frames do not come w/ a rear shock and Nashbar does not have the info. Anyone know the rear shock eye-to-eye measurements? Is it 7.875x2.0?

    Ordered a Force last sunday, no contact

    CHARGES FOR WHAT WILL SHIP IN THE FUTURE - what does it mean ? My frame is ready for shipping or they're waiting on payment ? I'm using credit card and sent all required numbers with order.

    EDIT:

    Dammit, missed out on a sanction in my size. Got a copper force instead.

    Got a ruckus during last years frame sale, and I love the hell out of it. It'll be nice to build something lighter now.

    The ruckus frame I got from them last year didn't come with the shock bushing hardware, so I doubt that they will this year.

    Nashbar is notorious for selling out of stock frames etc. I tried to buy a zaskar expert just recently, The website took my order, emailed me a confirmation, which told me it was shipping, then cancelled.

    They often have their head up their a** on these big sales. It's not the first time it's happened to me. Usually if you don't get tracking by 2 days after ordering, you have to call to find out if you're going to actually get it. Chances are it's no and if you don't call to find out they won't bother to notify you for possibly weeks later. If the pending charge expires on your method of payment before it clears, you aren't getting your goodies.

    So nice of them to get you all excited then PSYCH! No Frames for YOU...Thanks bike Nazi-bar! Oh and thanks again for that fiasco with the stolen credit info 3 years ago which made me & a billion other customers of yours cancel their cards and get new ones. At least I was lucky and no fake charges got through alot of people weren't so lucky. Nashbar is still sketchy at best. Good deals if you can actually get them and even if you do sometimes there are issues.

    Sometimes they send returned/used/open merchandise as new (happened a few times) or they don't ship it by the method you picked. I asked for 2day, chgd for 2day, sent ground, have to call, then wait for refund. Happens A LOT! I'm a sucker for a good deal, so I deal with the bad for the good, but sometimes it doesn't feel worth it. Jenson has never let me down ever. I try to get gear there with price match/free ship first.

    Yep, I was so geeked! I found killer component deals and pretty much had it built in my head with a mix of mid level components totalling under $700.

    Of course that was with a lowbuck carbon rigid fork. With a good susp fork presto $1000-$1200. Which is still well below bikepedia's msrp of $2000 for 09 Zaskar expert alloy.

    Most of my spec'd components were equal to or better than stock too. I have been waiting for a killer deal on a pearl white frame for sooo looong. Cue the muted trumpet bummer sound: Bwaaww, Bwaaww, Bwaaaawww...

    Wow, that'd unfortunate. I'd be pretty pissed.

    But my force frame is set to arrive tomorrow. And I have never had any issues with nashbar, and have ordered from them numerous times (10+)

    Did they give you a tracking number or just tell you that it drop shipped? If you actually got a tracking number you are good to go.

    If they say it's drop shipping that means it wasn't in stock, and they're hoping the manufacturer or wholesaler can or will ship one. They will tell you what you want to hear, but if your frame isn't actually shipping from their warehouse, good luck. Your chances are slim. ***See Edit Below***

    As I said earlier, if you don't get tracking after a couple of days, you're most likely not going to get your frame. It can take weeks for them to tell you whether it's actually drop shipping or they're cancelling the order.

    I'm not trying to be a killjoy here, just giving you my experience, so expectations can be tempered. To those who haven't had any Nashbar issues, Keep ordering. I do. BUT the laws of probability will catch up to you.

    ***Edit Note*** 7/2712 My above earlier opinion has changed. From personal experience, I thought that any frame drop shipping was not in stock and was unlikely to actually be delivered . With new info in later posts, My opinion now is that most if not all of the sale frames were planned to be drop shipped. At this point, I'm still skeptical that all frames will be delivered.

    Who has gotten their frame, and what was your experience?

    I'd like the people who have actually received their frames to speak up and tell us how long it took after you were notified (or not) of shipping. I'm curious if most of these frames are being drop shipped as opposed to direct shipped from the Nashbar warehouses, and how long the actual process is taking.

    Is anyone that's been told of a drop ship (or told it was shipped with no tracking) actually getting a frame? If you did get your frame what was the approximate period of time from ordering to receiving it?

    If people are actually getting frames, then the prices might be worth the wait, but if most of the "dropped shipped" frames are actually "dropped orders" Then it's all a GiAnT MiNd F***.

    So to those out there who got a frame after it was "drop shipped" (if there are any) Lend a hand to those who tried or are trying to get a frame, Please help your brother and sister bikers while they're stranded in 'NaShBaR FrAmE SaLe LiMbO" (he said with a deep echoing voice)

    Thanks for posting. I'm curious what it says in your order status @ Nashbar.

    In the Item detail, does it say "charges below reflect merchandise shipped", or something like that?

    In that same box, under the item description, does it say "in stock" or "item currently unavailable"?

    If it still says "in stock" you probably have less worries. If you don't get tracking very soon, I suspect that most all of these frames are being drop shipped from a wholesaler, or GT, or whoever actually manufactures the frames for GT.

    If Nashbar's plan is for all or most of the frames to be drop shipped, the chance of getting a frame is better, but the time frame will still s**k major. Also when stuff gets drop shipped, the retailer (Nashbar in this case) usually has very little info for the customer. They know not much more than us about the frames status.

    Unless people start telling me differently, (that they got a frame & how long it took) I theorize that most frame buyers are going to have to wait the better part of a month before they either get a frame or get cancelled/refunded. NO Fun...

    Well it appears I misunderstood my tracking info, all of the order except for the frame arrived yesterday. I called nashbar up like "what's the dealio?" And the lady assured me that it shipped out from "our warehouse" on tuesday, and I should expect to receive it in 7-10 business days from the ship date. She did not know what method of shipment was used (Ups, FedEx, DHL) but, she was pretty adamant that it DID ship out. so we will see. We will see if patience and optimism prevails and is rewarded.

    Right now everything on the website says it has shipped, just no tracking info. I remember when I got my ruckus frame last year, the frame did ship separately, and took 3 or 4 days longer than the rest of my shipment

    Edit: Was able to look back at last years purchase tracking info, and the frame i ordered then shipped from an entirely different place. Shipped from Champaign, IL, while all the other nashbar orders shipped from North Jackson, OH. So it is likely that they are not shipping from nashbar themselves, they just didnt bother with tracking info this time around.
