What shipping option do you use? Free or the DHL express? And how long dose the free take? :007:

is going big on a bike the only way to get you stoked on the sport? what happened to riding with your bros, travelling, and riding unique places, to get people stoked on riding?

fines are useless. there needs to be more punches to the throat.

I did the free as well three times. First was a couple weeks, second three days and third three weeks plus duty. Go figure.

Debate? Bikes are made for riding not pushing.

Last time was free shipping for me, took a week (that was over a holiday weekend too, so really 4 business days) and no duty on $600 of parts

Less than a week… Might be longer because you live in the swollen sphincter of Hell.

This trip to Kelowna was definately an undertaking - Liam and I had been planning this project for 24 hours. We worked really hard to pull out all the stops in this video. We had slo-mo goggle shots; time lapses; pedal flips; outrageous product shots; unloading and loading the bike; walking through the field with your hand in wheat. At the end of the day this trip was all about just getting out and riding with all my friends.

I got the free shipping last time, around 2 weeks to get to me plus I got charged duty fees which apperantly I wasn't supposed to be charged (according to a few board members).

i've been waiting nearly 3 weeks for a set of disc brakes, have been away from work last two days though so i'm hoping they will be there when i get in tomorrow. They have been getting a slating on singletrack recently taking forever just to ship within the uk. Their previously excellent standards do seem to be dropping.

Just over a week, no duty. Backordered items shipped a week after, took a week as well, in spite of labour troubles with Canada Post. Faster than an order shipped via Purolator Ground from B[HTML_REMOVED]H photo.

I most likely will. This last job I barely had time to sleep let alone ride. I worked 7 weeks straight of 12 hour and 13 hour night shifts- with two days off during that time.
