|I ordered a front bike light around two and a half weeks ago on their web site (alternately called Mud, Sweat, & Gears). It has not yet arrived. They were supposed to send me an email confirmation within a day or two of the order, and they didn't. I tried to call a few times this morning and there's no answer.|

|Don't quote me on this, but I think Bikeusa.com is run by BikeUSA, which is a San Diego LBS chain. They just were purchased (last week or the week before), by a national chain, and I cannot remember the name. My guess is this is causing some sort of a backup in deliveries.
I looked up the retail store's telephone number; they may be able to help you out: 619.283.4500.

|The guy said they're not related at all to the internet order company. If the light is on its way, it would be a shame to cancel, but there seems to be no way to verify anything. Might just have to call the credit card company and cancel.|

|BikeUSA, the shops in San Diego, were bought out by Performance on Monday Dec. 10. BikeUSA was not connected in any way to bikeusa.com. I work for the shop so this is all true info.|

|Mud, Sweat and Gears is a company located in Oklahoma. I've never ordered from them but they are real.|

|Yes. An Oklahoma-based operation. And I have ordered from them: They are slow! Real slow. But you will get your stuff.|

|Probably some guy operating out of his garage in Fargo, North Dakota.|

|I also ordered a light system (Planet Bike) from them but it was out of stock. I sent them several e-mails inquiring about the status of my order before they finally responded. They didn't know how long it would be before my order could be filled, so I cancelled it. I bought another light system, and then got an e-mail and phone call about a week later from bikeusa.com telling me that the lights had come in. Unfortunately, I no longer needed the light by then. |
They have a great web site with lots of information and good prices. I will probably order from them again in the future, just not something that I need right away.

|My fave bike retail site since they list no name retro and marginalized stuff n every conceivable outdated size that nobody else will carry because of not enough markup. I inquired to Cambria once and the rep told me why should he carry something nobody will buy.
Also my experience is Mud's shipping charge is a little high probably because they have to bring it in from the warehouse in Taiwan, :-)
