    I noticed he hasn't been posting lately and was wondering too. It took a while to get my freewheel from him but not that long

    Likewise, I've been wonderin' about the boy. He usually doesn't stop flappin' his gums for as long as he has this time. He's def MIA... put out an ABP!

    Ernesto's history of disappearing after taking product orders could qualify as a sticky thread...

    I thought you were going to use semihorizontal? Anyway, if the dropout faces forward with one of those awesome derailer thingies at the bottom, we're on the same page.

    Look at dropout. The end facing away from the bike is rounded. It makes the chain tug slip, from time to time. Measure the arc of the rounded area, divide by the width of a 10 speed chain. Take the square root of that number, carry it in a laundry basket and do a couple push ups so you can run narrower handlebars and still get the same level of torque. Then take a file/dremel tool, or whatever, and make the rounded area flat- just don't over do it to the point where your dropout drops off.

    Thanks for giving me a bit more direction. they are semi horizontal drops but the technical term is horizontal dropout(people here get angry if you say otherwise ).how did you know i have a wide bar . the QR's are slipping pretty bad, WORST TEST RIDE EVER!

    I was wondering myself. It's been quite some time since I ordered my freewheel too.

    At least you're okay!

    Wow -- you couldn't even trouble yourself to read the post that started this thread? Not exactly the kind of customer service that generates new business . . . .

    Perhaps a certain amount of wait time is required before shipping?

    Really?

    I ordered stuff from ERNESTO on September 7th 2010 waited tell the 20th to inquire an ETA. I received an email reply the 09/21/10 "Hi Travis, they have a shortage right now and I am still waiting to fullfill a bunch more orders. 2 more weeks." It is now 4 weeks past said delivery date and I am truly considering a refund. I ordered a front hub from a LBS and they messed up by a week and gave it to me at cost. This online parts thing really is not as great as everyone claims it is.
