    Ive got 3 shipments in the mail. Why's it so hard to wait?

    Shipment 1: Cannondale Flash Carbon 3 29er
    Shipment 2: 2x NiteRider Lumina 650 lights
    Shipment 3: Bunch of tools/sealant/misc parts

    Can it arrive already? I mean, I've got my road bike to keep me company for a little while, but I'm dying to get dirty again.

    Does anyone have and tricks/tips to make the postman hurry up?

    Shave your leg and hold it out of the door? Case of beer on the doorstep?
    I don't use Strava. Don't need an application to tell me I am slow because I already know.

    Find a big guy and have him punch your lights out. When you wake up in a hospital bed next week all your stuff will have come in!

    Shipping may be a little backed up this week due to black friday/cyber monday sales. That being said, I got two shipments on time yesterday.

    Tracking notifications are your friend!

    Personally, i wouldn't wait for the shop to build it up. i would be upset if they waited 20 minutes to call me after the package arrived. I would build it up myself. Most fun to dial it in while assembling. My problem is that i always assemble at night and have to go to bed before a full shakedown on the trail. Going to sleep is like torture at that point.

    Not sure how Cannondale rolls, but some bike companies only warranty the bike if its assembled by the shop you bought it from. Whether or not the shop adheres to this is a different story.
