If you, like me, are going to assemble a bike from parts mainly sourced in the US, what ever you do, don't let the seller send you the parts using United States Postal Service (not to be mistaken for United Parcel Service). It takes FOREVER! I ordered a wheel January 22 and I still haven't got it. It's 2009 fer chrissakes! Furthermore, their useless "tracking" service on their web page only gives me the info that "the package left United States from FOREIGN CENTERJERSEY CITY NJ 099 at 5:32 PM on January 28". So? What am I to do with that info? Unconfirmed rumors have it that my wheel is abord this vessel now making its way across the Atlantic, after having spent one week on the back of a yak from Philadelphia to New Jersey.
