    I’m thinking the bike will arrive, all will be fine and dandy, it will get built with no issues and look great. Then it’ll get stolen.

    Has it not arrived yet?
    Today is Thursday and delivery was promised today.
    Some firms give rubbish service.

    Think I’ll complain on Facebook.

    So will you be apologising for kicking off? Or do you genuinely think that escalating your non complaint up the hierarchy (well, it probably wasn’t, but it’s nice that you think it was) got you your bike in time?

    Oh not till August, but it’s good to put fake deadlines in place to make sure you get what you want.

    (I deal with people like the OP a LOT with work. They absolutely need something by x date and chase hourly, copying in anyone they think might be important, we get it done, then a month later, ‘I’m just setting up my xxxx’ or ‘can you get me a price on a few more options)

    Edit, then the real ****s joke about it. Like the OP.

    Anyone got a “oh the ironing” gif handy?

    We need to go easy on the OP. He’s got the box open now and can see the mess of tangled carbon/alu shards that Yodel have transformed it into.

    My money is on the frame being the wrong size but he will never admit to making a mistake and it will be awesome and sic and in around 3 months time it will be in the classifieds as “new other”

    Standard internet*, innit. Schrödinger’s Outrage: behave like an outraged dick, then when anyone points out you’re behaving like an outraged dick simply accuse them of behaving like an outraged dick.

    I think I could watch that box on the conveyor belt for hours 😂

    Nah, that kind of thing is normally done by stealth in the main forum.

    Not at all, I’ve got a parcel here from Belfast hospital which means a busy few hours ahead trolling some hapless, disorganised hothead on kidneytransplantworld.com

    I bought forks from Taiwan via eBay on Tuesday. Expected turnaround was 2 to 3 weeks. Courier has emailed to say they’ll be here on Friday. In your face OP. I was going to buy from CRC but customer service guy was trying to sell me something completely wrong.

    Actually I challenge the OP to a duel. You get your frame today so you’ve got a headstart. Let’s see if I can get my forks fitted tomorrow before you finish the build.

    Is it built yet?

    Also no patio/fence comments yet?

    I think imagined the delivery time to be tomorrow. Ignore my ramblings.

    That’s pretty much what every stroppy millennial says when they’ve kicked off over nothing, made themselves look daft and then are asked, reasonably, to show some contrition by an adult.

    But, so long as they get their own way in the end, then no lessons will be learned and we’ll all be back here in a couple of months when the OP has done the exact same thing over something else.

    But it will be just as much fun next time, so here’s hoping…..

    Hey lads, give the guy a break.

    He’s deep in conversation with the MD at CRC about the best way to open the box. No instructions were given and he doesn’t know where to start. And his mummy won’t be back from her Zumba class for another hour.

    Well now… you made me think, on that basis: “I bet this time isn’t the first time”.

    So… click click, scroll, hmm let’s try that one, click, ah yes, so three clicks away from here we have “Bought some spokes – no nipples!!” (top tip: double exclamation marks always a good indicator), in which it doesn’t take long for the inevitable reply saying “the site says ‘nipples available separately’” to appear 😀

    In fact the whole thread apparently took a now very familiar route 🙂

    That spoke thread is amusing, good distraction from The Waiting. Why are we still waiting anyway, isn’t the build finished yet?

    People who prefix emails/threads with ‘urgent’ are best avoided also, IMO

    Of course, the perfect (if somewhat unlikely) closure here would be if the bike can’t be built because the OP has just realised he’s got no spoke nipples.
