    Morning.

    Didn't get half as much stuff done around the house this weekend as I wanted to. Oh well, at least it was a relaxing weekend.

    Oct 4: frame ordered, needs to be sent from UK. Told I'd hear from them for payment in 2-3 weeks when frame comes in

    Oct 26ish: more than 3 weeks goes by, haven't heard from them. Call them asking where it is, told they will look into it and get back to me.

    Oct 27ish: Call back after hearing nothing, only to hear they never actually ordered it from the UK

    Oct 27ish-November 9ish: Frame is being taken out of bond in the UK and sent to the US. Supposedly. Told it should be in early the following week

    November 12ish: (Monday) Called asking if the frame came in, was told they had confirmation it cleared customs and was on the way to them, should be to them by Wednesday.

    November 14ish: Called, still no frame.

    November 19ish: Called, still no frame.

    November 23ish: Called, still no frame.

    November 26: Finally got confirmation there was a frame in. Paid, frame shipped out, got a FedEx tracking number. Delivery date of 12/1.

    December 1: All excited waiting for the frame to show up to build it that day. 7:30pm rolls around and still no frame. Tracking says delivered and left at front door. No frame. Called FedEx, delivered to wrong house. Can't contact driver until 12/3.

    December 2: THE GOOD: Luckily, whichever neighbor of mine they delivered it to was nice enough to drop it off at my house. THE BAD: Open box. Frame is there, right size and color.....with no dropouts or hardware.

    Jesusfvckingchrist. I needed to vent.

    'Morning. I banged out my 5K yesterday in 21:23, a personal best. That was good for a finish of 116 out of 2083 runners. Not too shabby.


    Edit: Crabjoe, sounds like just another MTB frame purchase to me. What's the problem? :p

    Well, it's especially shocking/disappointing to me coming from owning all Turners the past 5-6 years. Best example: A new replacement DHR frame on my door step in 3 days when I broke my out-of-warranty, second owner DHR frame.

    Fvcking mud.

    View attachment 112610

    So sticky that it was packing up between the tire and fork arch. Had to walk 1/2 the climb but the descent was fun as ever!

    Now my bike is all dirty though :(

    PS DHF's do not clear mud for crap.

    They clear mud just fine if you're moving fast enough. User error here.

    Reading comp fail?

    Uphill sucked because of mud (I can not reach 15 mph in my granny gears while climbing :( ). The downhill was still fun, most of the mud was in my teeth. :D

    Let me just install lifts on all my local trails.

    Or I could just buy a bunch of extra bikes so that I never use a DH part for climbing or a FR part for racing or a AM part for XC.

    I carry separate shocks for climbing and descending.

    At the top of a climb I will stop and change from my lycra to my skinsuit.

    Afternoon.

    CrabJoe -- that sucks :( If it's any consolation...I'm still waiting for UPS payment for breaking my new CX bike in the end of July.

    BUSY here, but it does make the days go by faster.
