Anyone know if these guys are still in business?
Sent a carbon wheel up a while now and despite a couple of emails and left phone messages no response.
Just wondering if my wheel has disappeared down a black hole.....

They sound like douchebags.

We'll get back to you when we feel like it,..... we're booked months in advance dahhhling.

I would have chosen someone who could be bothered to reply to emails and texts and perhaps been bothered to pick up the phone.

I'm inclined to agree with nagem, seems as though customer service is an afterthought in general for them.

That said, their Facebook page provides somewhat of an explanation....

Probably not douchebags just appears they out of their depth as small business owners not being able to deal with demand and customer service at the best of times, let alone at a time of crisis.....

Sad that demand and success is the downfall of many small businesses.

So anyway, it appears there's a great business opportunity if you can repair carbon in NZ!!

Well that's some comfort, I am not in a rush for my wheel just wanted to know it hadn't disappeared.
I guess he is pretty distracted at the mo but setting up an auto email reply and a note on the website would probably save him a lot of time and worried customer.

Good idea, you could send him an email suggesting that.
