How long does an order from Totalcycling take?Sintesi
Feb 28, 2002 8:48 AM
I seem to remember everyone commenting how quickly their order showed up. I ordered a set of wheels last week on Wednesday and now that it's Thursday I'm starting to get a little nervous (first time dealing w/ this company) so I call the shipping company and they said it was held up in customs for the last few days. Is this normal? Has anyone else ordered wheels recently from these guys? How long did it take for you?

Thanks.
My friends have received their orders in 2-3 days nmPaul

I have ordered from them twice in the past month. First order was 2 pairs of tires. I think it took about 3 business days to get here using DHL.

Second order was a Look frame and it took exactly 5 business days to get here using Parcel Force.

FWIW, I'm in North Carolina.

I wouldn't hesitate to order from Total Cycling again.
How do you like your Look? I bought a kg 386 last Nov.Paul

and really like it. I considered going to Totalcycling, but got a little better deal through Performance. Built it up with dura ace and ksyriums, and after riding C-Dales, the Look is a pleasure to ride.

I got the KG241, but I haven't ridden it yet. It's being built up at the LBS right now. I just got back from there to determine where to cut the steerer tube. I'll probably pick it up tomorrow and get to ride it next week as it is supposed to rain here all weekend.
Do you live in N. VA? Same forecast for the weekend (nm)Paul

bought a pair of Ksyriums from them in December, took about 10-12 days. email them, they were quick to respond to mine. would have no doubts in dealing with them again.

Their shipping company, Parcelforce, says they are hung up in customs. Was this the same for you? I guess I wasn't expecting that since FEDEX seems to sail right through. Thanks tho, it's reassuring to find out your wheels came out okay and no quicker than mine seem to be doing. I ordered the Ksyriums as well, how do you like them?

I love my wheels. I hit a pot hole so hard in a race last weekend I think my water bottle flew 10 ft in the air. checked my wheels after the race, perfectly true. you can definately feel the crosswind a little, but nothing to worry about. enjoy
I can't wait. Thanks (nm)Sintesi

Anything shipped overseas since 911 is taking longer due to customs--it can add between 3-7 days and, in some cases, even longer. Totalcycling should have informed you of this potential delay when you placed the order.
