Bunch of cock

I’ve just had an email from Ribble saying

Thanks for your recently placed order for the Record 06′ Ergopower Levers, I regret to inform you that we have unfortunately over sold of this item and are unable to supply you with the goods you have ordered. We have cancelled the order and no charge has been made against your card.

That was despite ordering 15 minutes after the sale email was sent out. I guess it wasn’t a real sale after all. It’s also taken them nearly a week to decide they aren’t going to send me any.

/me strikes Ribble off the list of shops to buy things from in the future.

    Bastards :(

    I think you might have got the email late, sure I got it the day before you ordered.

    As far as I can tell, I got the email about 20 seconds after they sent it out, and ordered about 15-20 minutes later.

    And there I was thinking of asking you if they had turned up since I’m still waiting for the new brake levers for my fixy.

    I assume they’ll turn up at some point since they’re listed on the site, but I’ve already put Ribble back in the “only use if you have to” box.

    I got my email the day before you ordered. They obviously stagger their special offer email delivery :(

    You got yours on the Thursday?

    Yet another reason not to shop with them again.

    and they’re rubbish at building wheels.

  7. Alex says:

    I definately wont be buying anything from them… losers

    They should be forced to swallow a bag of cocks.

    B is it for Barnes
    W is for Wood.

    seems silly that they can’t get them all sent the same day, maybe Simon’s was sent before closing and rich’s the next day..
    a week to tell you they haven;t got any is mad though, but that’s not surprising thye probably sold them before they’d actually recieved them.. I have some stories about ribble…

    Boo
    I think I got my email at the same time as you. I remember looking at it when you said you’d bought some.

    One day, my goddamn tubes ain’t come yet.. i bet they come and they’re wrong.

    just seen the 2007 langster in evans cycles. looks good in brown.

  14. Father says:

    Yes, a nice brown disguises the mud. And you could always paint it beige.

  15. matt says:

    @steve.. laa laa laaaa i can;t hear you… can;t afford bikes anymore anyway!

  16. rjw says:

    There was one in town earlier. It does look nice.

  17. matt says:

    It’s ok I’m over the ‘buy all the bikes in the world’ phase :)

  18. Father says:

    Like Rich?

  19. matt says:

    Yes, although he has no reason not to buy every bike in the world… expect that he owns them all already :)

    Who’s bought the most this year, actually?

    Ribble = on the “never use based on other people’s experiences” list.
