    I don't really care if he ever gets caught up. He lost me as a customer for good. Too bad - I was really looking forward to my red 32t chainring for my White Industries ENO crank.

    Wow, here I am b1tching and moaning about a $99 order I placed in September.
    Sounds like there are plenty more disgruntled folks in front of me.

    By no means am I defending the situation any of us are in at the moment. However I just wanted to add that there were some issues with annodizing as well and now all items are being sent out rather than being done in house. This also adds a little more time to the equation.

    I do hope he gets the orders out to folks as quick as he can. I hate being swamped at work so I can only imagine what he is dealing with. However, a lot if not all of this drama could have been avoided had communications been better from the get go. At the same time, I think that orders started rolling in the equipment went down, then his health issues, all these things unannounced of course. It sounds simple to say why not just put a notice that new orders aren't being accepted at this time but since none of us are in his shoes, I guess that is a little hard for us to say.

    Like I said, I'm not defending any of this. More like, going on with my life at this point with a lesson learned. I wish him well and hope he can get this stuff banged out and everyone can get what is owed them.

    Just bought some X0 cranks and a MRP spiderless ring because I couldn't wait any longer for this guy.

    I am going to sell my HBC 31t ring when I get it in if anyone wants to buy it off me

    I promise I'll deliver unlike this guy

    except for the fact that he was never too swamped to fab jeep parts and go on jeeping expeditions and outings.

    except for the fact that his equipment always worked fine when it came to fabbing jeep parts.

    except for the fact that his "health condition" never got in the way of fabbing jeep parts or going on jeeping expeditions and outings.

    except for the fact that he spent the money as it came in WITHOUT FILLING ORDERS and now is having to scrounge to fill backorders spanning well over a year. (he said on his facebook page he's out of money as yet another excuse for delivery delays)

    except for the fact that his "financial condition" never prevented him from fabbing jeep parts and going on jeeping expeditions and outings.

    9 months today. I could have produced a child in the time it's taken for him to send me a chainring.

    you either don't know what "whining" means or you don't know what's going on here.

    which is it?

    i think the moral of this story is not to be remembered as "THAT GUY", unless it is something good.
