I ordered some parts from them, and they took almost 3 weeks to get here! then, to top it off , the order wasn't even complete! I emailed them about this, and have yet to get a reply, even after 4 days! so don't order from them! i picked the mbecause i could save a couple of bucks over's online QBP catolog, but it was clearly not worth it !
 so just order from, if you want service!

There is no better customer service to be had than Hammerhead Bikes. They are a small bike shop with some of the most knowledgeable people you can find. Charles Coker is well thought of on MTBR and a pleasure to do business with. I don't know your situation with your order from them, but I do know this... you will be hard pressed to find ANYONE that has a bad thing to say about Charles or Hammerhead Bikes.
I've had the same issues with HH as well.MOJO221

Without getting into detail's, I've experienced the same problems you've described. Charles' service seems to be hot and cold. He sells an awesome bike at a great price, but the service can certainly leave alot to be desired sometimes. I think he means well and genuinely cares, but is sometimes overwhelmed and doesn't have the resources to handle the interest he's generated.
Did this ever get resolved?Crash

Just curious if this ever got resolved. I have dealt with Charles before and a nicer more honest guy doesn't exist. He does however get way over maxed from time to time. I can't imagine him ever screwing anyone over.

They quote a good price, but can't fill orders worth a sh!t. It's obvious that they are just a small shop, not really an e-tailer.
