Don't worry, it will happen. If he didn't want to know us, he could have just said so. It's been taking a crazy amount of time so far, but on the upside, I am starting to rebuild the cartridge fund :-).

good

That sounds like me.
I've had the money gathered up, and spent again 4 or 5 times since this all began.
I will hang in there.

Xmas Wrapping

The inserts will make a great Xmas gift to me from me.

Is Xmas wrapping extra ?

Good news, he has the springs and the cartridge kits are ready. Please let him know if you want the softer of the harder springs, if you've put in an order. I'll go soft, because the R80 will be lighter than the R100 and I weigh about 80kg.

I didn't even have to ring up, he's sent me an email. He is going to send me some photos of the cartridges, so I'll post these as soon as I have them.

Good to hear that your persistence & time has finally had a payoff Koko.

i have a preference for a nicer ride,and its unlikely that i will ever have the bike two up and loaded.I am prolly 95 kg in gear?Are the softer springs for me?Are the springs still calibrated for our weight?Say if you get the soft springs are my soft springs the same as yours?

Email him how you intend to use the bike and your weight, ready to ride. He will set it up to suit and from what I have read about him, he knows his stuff. He has two different springs and the rest of the adjustment will be in the cartridge.

I would just send the info again, but make sure he knows it's not a new order. Since it's already evening in Germany, I don't expect any pictures today. It's off to work I go in a few minutes.

Just had another email from him, he is ready to ship. I am waiting on a response on the PayPal setup. I am happy to do a bank transfer, but I am also trying to find out what the shipping costs are.

Did anyone else not get a reply?

I placed an order 5/8/2012. I never got a reply.
Anyone else not heard back?

I have just sent a DUPLICATE order.

Once again thanks Alex for keeping this one going. I hope the inserts serve you well.
