    Monkeylit SL at WheelWorld - $49.99

    They have the XC's, but I noticed that they had the SL's for the same price. I hope they show up!

    I would stay away from the deal.

    Mine was ordered 10 days ago, and it is still being processed.

    They claim things are in stock, when they are not.

    Wheelworld is nothing like the good online bikeshops.

    How can they "just show up" when they have claimed to have them in stock for the last 2 weeks?

    They have no idea what happened to it.

    After 20 minutes on hold I managed to get it cancelled.


    That was a HUGE waste of time.

    Uh...I got mine in 3 days

    I ordered online from Wheelworld and received my SL bar 3 days later using regular ground shipping. That seems pretty good to me.

    I'm looking at the xc bars. Looks like a great deal, but I am currently running a bar with lots of rise and not sure how much rise are on the xc bars.

    any feedback would be appreciated.

    Take a wild guess.

    Great experience

    I order an XC and received it in a few days on the East Coast. No complaints.

    They sent me someone else's order that included the two bars I had ordered, but I was missing a tire. When I called to get the missing tire I also ordered a 25.4 stem. When I received the stem and tire, I realized I had been charged for the tire a second time. I am still trying to work this out and they are not responding to email. Wheelworld has good deals, but the customer service isn't as good as Jenson's.

    I might need to order from bike bling, my wheelworld order placed on the 6th still hasn't shipped....

    Edit, they illegally(retailers can't charge your card before they ship the item) charged my card on the 7th. I sent them an e-mail asking to cancel the order and refund my Visa.

    I'll be avoiding this company from now on.

    Smile WheelWolrd comes through!

    Hello All,

    Well I ordered the bars Friday and they showed up Tuesday - no issues! Looks like WheelWorld did a good job this time.

    Quick update,
    The bar showed up today and I got a call from Danny just after the bar arrived.
    They had charged my card and had shipped the bar but their records didn't show that they'd shipped the bar. He said that they had missed the order and not shipped the bar.
    He was going to refund my shipping and send out another bar, but I told him that the bar arrived safe and sound and they didn't need to send another bar. They're still going to refund my shipping.
    All in all they were slow to respond and there was a mix up in the order but they made it right and were very helpful when I finally heard back from them.
    I'll probably order from them again.
