good experience with Rennaissance CyclesSpirito
Oct 28, 2002 11:52 AM
a top e-shopping experience with the gang in Eindhoven. basically ordered a bunch of knick knacks (pedals, clips, b/bracket, brake hoods, bartape etc) and a couple of NOS Galli cranks with a 44T attached. killer driveside single/fixie crank for $12 - but you'll need to order a few bits as they are listed under their Hot Sheet section (min $50 purchase) - not hard to do if you perouse the rest of their site site.

they are the good old 144bcd. came with double chainring bolts, and to my surprise, spacers so that they seem to hold the single ring perfectly in place for a true ready to bolt on piece of kit.

payed with paypal on monday - box of goods was with me on thursday. i opted for express shipping which came to $29 but i am sure i couldn't buy similar odd bits anywhere else for anything close to as little coin.

they do a super job and am again happy to have spent $'s with them even if it was only small.

in hindsight i wish i had spent more but then that would be setting precedent and Mrs. Hickey would be downscaling her Christmas shopping list. i can hear Dave saying " .... but even spirito has broken his vow and is secretly spending ....." followed by ".. fine Dave - perhaps youll be spending Thanksgiving alone eating chinese takeout like that don king-esque bike addict !!! "


oh ..... the christophe mini-clips they have for $2 are the coolest bike things i have seen for some while now. perfect for riding home from the boozer ... did i say that?
LOFL.......... You made my day..............nmDave Hickey

good to hear, I've been thinking of throwing these guys some business. keep waiting for a frame to show up on their site.

Well, your waiting for a frame and I am waiting for my merchandise! I won an auction earlier this month and just found out yesterday after emailing them wondering where the good were, that they had to check but it just might not have shipped...Ok. You've had the money for weeks and weeks but didn't ship. Makes me want to order more!

just my experience. Could be a simple mix up, there was mention that while he was off for a few weeks his one employee lost the key to the warehouse and therefore didn't get some things shipped. But I don't like these reasons. It is almost like the reasons I have gotten from some ebay guys....

MY ISP is having problems and I couldn't access my email.
My harddrive went south.
My dad died or my mom died get the point.

I am giving them the benefit of the doubt for another week.
