- Online bike bits: reliable next day delivery?
i ordered some XO shifters from CRC saturday pm, arrived a few hrs ago.
RM first class.
I have had problems last year but ordered 4K’s worth of parts over a 4 month period, i would say 50% were well behind delivery dates, the longest wait being 3 months,
still use CRC as much as ever.
same old complaints on here, but only say 20 people complain, 10,000 don’t.Posted 6 years agocouldashouldawouldaMember
I placed 2 orders with crc last week. One took 2 days to despatch (and was sent parcelforce 48) the other was 6 days before despatch (RM). All in stock items.
Merlin always arrives next day for me, wiggle nearly always arrives next day (assuming I order in the morning).Posted 6 years agothepuristSubscriber
Last Friday I was building up a new bike when I realised it needed a conventional front mech, and I only had the other type. Placed an order with Merlin for a shiny XT mech at around 2.30 and it arrived on Sat morning – I didn’t even go for priority as I still had a hardtail to ride if it didn’t show up. I didn’t even consider CRC/Wiggle as they’ve usually become 2-3 days.Posted 6 years agonedrapierSubscriber
I need a few bits for the weekend. ‘puter, bar wrap, stem, saddle maybe. This time last year I’d have happily ordered from CRC on a Tuesday with no concerns about not having the stuff by the weekend.
Different story now though, I’m guessing even those who’ve said they’ve never had problems would be more cautious about urgent stuff.
How are SJS, Merlin, Wiggle at the moment?
I’ll say obviously LBS now, just to get it out of the way. I may end up going to them.Posted 6 years ago
