    Just saying thank you

    So I got mixed up in this gigantic hate-fest over on what bike to buy regarding my experience at an old job.

    I just want to say thanks to the DH and FR guys for not being argumentative and untrusting as a whole. I know we say stupid stuff over here but it's usually trivial and fun. Argh.

    Had to vent. Back to work.

    Typically UPS within the US48, sometimes USPS within the US if it's Hawaii, Alaska, a PO Box, or APO/AE military. Out of the US we try to use USPS but that doesn't always pan out.

    I know what you mean, James, the USPS "magic" number of 108". Many an evening I've been known to be spending some quality time with my box-cutter saving a customer $100+ on shipping.

    Some countries are only 79". Raging headache on that stuff when there's a rim involved.

    Which ones are only 79 when sending airmail? I know many are 79 when trying to send parcel post (the really cheap way... ), but I've had good luck with 108 when shipping airmail. Frame to France, yesterday, $49 plus insurance, at 107.5" girth. I was biting my nails thinking I was going to have to take the thing back to the shop and cut some more off the box.

    Quite the thread you got involved with there James. Over the years I've given up with dispensing good information unless I feel the original poster is going to take it as useful. It's just not worth the hassle dealing with the potential immature posts that might follow, any thread with D8 in it comes to mind.

    Just be confident in knowing that you guys do a great service to the industry on a daily basis.
    Please do not use the forum PM or e-mail function for business related questions. I can be contacted through our website. Thanks!

    I think sometimes its the clerk at the counter, I went to ship a frame and they wouldnt even take it! I had to cut it down several inches and it was just a standard frame box.

    Sent a Azonic Saber to Brazil once, again I had to take the frame apart and ship two boxes with USPS

    Haha you're insane!!!

    My titus rules. I've only crashed on it once and the frame felt so guilty it gave me a hand job!!

    Not only customer service but straight up frame service.....

    Remember that time I bought a turner from you guys and then I gave you my address? Instead of mailing me my bike you threw bricks through my window and played menudo outside my bedroom all night?? I'm sure everybody on the chainring forum remembers if you don't.

    Go away troll.

    That thread sucks!

    A quick example of Go-Ride's and James' integrity (James hope you don't mind me posting this):

    About a month ago I got a DRS installed on my Foes FXR. Krispy installed it and somewhere along the line the bolts for the roller guide were lightly screwed on but not fastened. Me being less than engineeringly gifted, I didn't notice anything amiss and proceeded to ride with it like that. Of course first ride and halfway through I hear a clunking noise, look down and see a loose bolt and no roller guide. Hmmm. Me dumb. So reported the situation to James and within a couple weeks, I am riding with a new roller courtesy of Go-Ride.

    The whole crew there has been nothing but great. And the people on WBB have a whole lot of nothing to do with their time, altho I do enjoy lurking around there every now and then to get my new bike jones on.
