    I called it! He'll just come up with more lame excuses. It's to bad, because he has a good thing going. You would think that we would hire some help and get the sh!t done and out.

    He'll just say that he is behind in fullfilling his orders. That's why he posted on Facebook. They won't be able to do anything about it.

    Guys, hire a lawyer and have him file a class action in the local jurisdiction where HBC operates. He will find it much more difficult to make excuses in court. And if he doesn't respond to that, you can have your lawyer put a lien on his property. You could also possibly get the judge to issue an injunction against him doing any further business on his website until he resolves this.

    Apologies if someone mentioned this before. I didn't read all 5 pages of the thread.

    Maybe.

    I mean, I agree that inviting everyone to post the details of how much money that HBC cheated them out of on the MTBR forums is by far the easiest and cheapest course of action. Unfortunately it also happens to be one of the least effective at actually getting anything done about it, ranking right up there with doing "nothing at all".

    Don't know what everyone's problem is. I ordered a ring and cog two weeks ago and it already arrived. He even sent me an email asking if I was happy with them.

    Sorry, couldn't wait until April 1st to do that! Glad I got my stuff years ago when he just started out. My new cogs are now CK or Endless...as far as rings, it will be...well, I still have 3 HBC's so I have some time to figure it out.

    That was like tapping a hornets nest with a stick to see if there are any angry ones inside yup.
    You should have waited till April fools day.. we may still be waiting for our cogs then.

    Isn't there a 4-45 week lead time with this, too? Or is that just with the chainrings?

    I'm personally satisfied with his update on Facebook. Now I at least know he's alive and attempting to fulfill his orders. At this point legal action will just make it less likely that I'll get my parts because he'll be dealing with lawyers instead of making my chainrings. Prior to seeing his FB page I was unaware that he had explained his situation (some of his milling tools broke which set him back, which seems to have led to getting overwhelmed by work & stress which led to panic attacks). He should have been better about communicating this on his website & through email but, whatever, it is what it is.

    He's no longer taking orders on his site, so that's resolved. As he works through his orders I'm sure that he will get more freed up to address any that have fallen through the cracks.

    So I think we should cut the guy some slack. He's clearly had some setbacks that he's working through them. He at least warned us about lead times, so even though the delay is legitimately unreasonable from a customer perspective, he did not breach any contracts.

    So for my part I would like to have my order removed from the list, and I don't want to be involved with any legal action.
