    Zack has been great here & VERY helpful. I ordered a set of Atomlab rims. spokes & torque nips 2 mos ago. STILL WAITING on the rims to be "in stock" were "backordered". I called Mike today @ Atomlab & he was very helpful telling me the person ordering for Beyond talked w/ him today & AGAIN FAILED to order my rim for the last time. He (Mike) called me back to say the stopped answering the phone a little early (2 hrs) today & he would try tomorrow. I am tired of Beyond, been a customer of theirs for years & years (mostly because of stock & prices) which is changing tomorrow. Zack is a fine cutomer service/ sales person he needs to find a better place to work. They advertised this in March as a sale item buy failed to tell me it was out of stock (as they alweays do). I even had a co. charge me 2 day air after waiting 1 mo. to be shipped (out of stock too). Seems to me @ this time in out economic crisis people would try a little harder to keep the few customers they still have. Far too much competition out there to stay w/ these companies...:plthumbsdown:

    YES - that is True, Beyond and AIR-BOMB are the SAME store. I have delt with Both Facades and had no negative experiences, but these stories concern me.
    Universal Cycles has always come through for me and i like their 15% discounts on orders over $300, plus NO SALES TAX to California and expert Shipping and Tracking always! ....yahoo!

    I hear Airbomb and Beyond Bikes are the same and then I hear they are not. All I really know is I ordered a Mavic 823EX rim that I was having trouble finding in stock and with a decent price. Airbomb had the best price online, I called for availability, the guy put me on hold for 30 seconds, came back and said he could have it at my door in Norcal in 2 days and this was at 3pm. I also got to use the 10% discount advertised on mtbr.coms homepage and that more than paid for the tax. I had the wheel at 10am two days later. I was impressed and have no problem ordering from them again.

    I wrote this over two years ago. They have since made good on the BS that total AHOLE Kerry caused. I sure hope for their sake he is no longer with them. I have never been back since this started even though I live close by their store. But if they have fixed their problems, good luck!

    i've had badddd experiance with Beyond bikes.. and i have 2 other people in hawaii here say the same thing.. the shipping takes forever cause they don't have it.. and their communication is sooo poor in this regard.
    i stopped using them 4 years ago when i started, Jenson.. or pricepoint for me.
