My brand new DX (also my first unicycle) finally got here from Brands Cycle and Fitness, after 3 weeks, and it has no seat/seat post! I called them and they said they would take those parts off another DX and send them to me, so it looks like it will be another 4 days before I start learning . But I do love the way it looks! Especially the Creepy Crawler!
Sweeeet I got my seatpost and seat almost immediately the next day. Which was weird if you ask me, but well worth it. Trust me, patience and you’ll see that all you will do is drool badly like i did when it was ready. I couldn’t wait to ride it myself.
Sounds like Brands didn’t open the box and look inside. If they’re doing mail order they really should. Then again they might be drop-shipping direct from the distributor, which means they never actually touch it but take responsibility for the order.
Brands is the bike shop that did the dangerous repairs on a set of six old Schwinn Giraffes I had bought used from a school that was no longer using them. They all had the earlier, threaded-on track hub, where the sprocket was in danger of unscrewing. I specifically told them to clean the threads and use red Loctite. When I picked them up I saw green oozing out around the sprockets, and sure enough, I tried one and the sprocket unwound immediately.
But then they fixed it right, good and tight. All in all, Brands was a very cool bike shop, and I was lucky to live only a mile down the street from them (when I lived in Wantagh, NY)!
Ya, they said they shipped mine the day after they got the DX shipment from Torker, so maybe they didn’t check the box. And I got the tracking number for only one package, so it probably won’t come today
