    I have nothing constructive to add other than "Crumpled nut tug" sounds like an entry from Urban Dictionary

    Nope, I checked lol
    I do suppose we could add it though... Perhaps something like when your sack gets caught on the front of your saddle as you are getting your weight back and you wind up curled up in the middle of the trail immobile for ten minutes...

    All I can say is that I ordered two chainrings (separate orders) and received two chainrings (and sent all the way to the Isle of Man), which I'm more than happy with. Lead time was more than I would have liked but it wasn't a life or death matter so I didn't get my knickers in a twist over it. Life goes on (hopefully) ...........

    It's a well known fact that crumpled nut tug is a reknowned phrase used by dh'ers in regards to xc racer types bombing steeps without dropping their saddle only to find they fold like a lawn chair weeping tears of pain when they hook their junk on the back of the saddle.

    So, I'm not usually one to post like this, but I think I'm out of options short of a chargeback. Placed order 3/15/12, still no chainring or email reply from HBC.

    OK, I hae to ask. Why do people still order from them if their CS is this bad? Not trying to be a smart a$$, just curious.

    To be honest, (HBC's) rings and cogs are a work of art...I've made several orders in the past, and have had to wait, but never this long...hopefully my crap gets to me soon!

    I like my chainring and cog. I bought them early 2011 - received them on time, before things went to ****.

    Fwiw, a personal friend of mine received his chainring and cog last week. He placed his order in mid-March.

    ordered 1/3/11
    received 3/9/11

    He stayed on contact over e-mail during that time too. Also met him in mammoth where he spotted my sprockets while i was in line and said hi. Seemed like a cool guy the 2 min I met him. I am happy with the sprockets but wondering if I should place an order now in hopes of getting it by the time mine wear out or just look for different sprockets when I finally need them.

    $0. Maybe more if I starting sending all the *****es tampons.

    I hope HBC gets back on track. I am sure I'll need a new cog soon.

    Wait time are not what is stated on the website, but aren't anything different than people have experienced the last few years.
