Anyone received their team from bikesdirect yet. I got an email on tuesday showing they charged my credit card but did not give a shipping number or even imply the bike was shipped. I have Emailed them twice without reply.

Yep! Got mine yesterday. It actually shipped on shipped on Oct. 2. Odd you didn't get any email from them. I sent 3 emails during our wait, and got prompt response each time. Once i saw the card charged email, i sent email asking them to send me shipping info so i could track the order. Shortly recieved an email from UPS( UPS indicated it was sent at the request of bikesdirect) giving me tracking number. All is well, and as far as i'm concerned, bikesdirect did all they advertised.

No e-mail and no charge on my card to date. I should have e-mailed them again, but I didn't want to get a reply confirming yet another delay.

Got the bike Thursday. It's awesome! I received a statement that my credit card had been charged and then the following day an email notice from UPS. It arrived in two days.
I took the bike to a LBS for final assembly. They charged me $49, which I though was not a bad deal. Especially since getting the bike online saved me the extra $600 the LBS wanted for the same bike. I felt bad to be taking business elsewhere but I just cant justify spending the extra money the LBS would charge. I did buy some new shoes/pedals from them.
Hope you enjoy your bike as much as I do.

I can do the basics myself, handlebars, seat/post etc, but was wondering what state the bike is delivered in.

I got mine. Here's a list:

1. It has a nice big stack of carbon spacers; I think I may need to cut down the (carbon) steer tube a bit.
2. Install front brake caliper, attach cable and adjust brake.
3. My front wheel is perfect, but the rear is extremely out of true. This may have been an oversight on their part. Once that is fixed, I'll adjust the rear brake also.
4. Seat/post installation and ajdustment (2 minutes).
5. Pedal installation.
6. Derailleur ajdustment.
7. Clip cables and solder or shrink wrap ends or attach ferrules.

I think that's about it.

Thanks, that all seems easy enough to do. I haven't recieved my bike yet, but if out of true wheels are the most I will have to deal with I will be fine. The wheels can go in seperately and be trued for a few bucks if I can't manage it so no prob there.
No. But here's what I did....jesse1

...I sent out two unanswered emails to them and after about five days from the second one I sent one with the header "thinking about cancelling my order".
They promptly sent one back saying the bike "would ship within 48 hours". The next day I got the email stating that my crdit card was charged with the sale. The next day I got an email from UPS saying it has shipped and included tracking info. I believe Bikesdirect will come through, but I think they've been swamped and can't handle the orders as good as they should. Good luck.

Hmmm, seems like the squeaky wheel gets the team. I will be e-mailing them Monday morning.

please take a look at my question rom the components board regarding installing the headset and fork on my new Team. I'm assuming some of you have already done this with your new bikes.
