- So these half-price Schwalbe tyres from On One…
so you pre-order some tyres that the vendor quite clearly states on their website
“The tyres are on their way from Germany and are due to arrive 10th January”
It gets to the 10th january and you expect them to be with you the next day ‘or so’, despite there probably being a large number of people that pre-ordered and therefore a large number of orders to be picked and sent out
I would say chances are you will be fitting the tyres after you do the rest of your work, but you cant really blame On One, Royal Mail, or the German postal equivalent as it was clearly stated that the earliest possible date for them to be in One Ones warehouse (not your house) was today!Posted 7 years ago
I’m not complaining about them not being here yet – I fully understand that they’re due at the warehouse today. I’m just curious if they will be arriving there today or not, or if the container ship has been hijacked, the container washed overboard, or the UPS train is stuck in snow somewhere.. I’m in no rush, other than the ‘I want my new stuff’ reflex has kicked in.
In fact, I may go and poke last nights mud off the bike now, and get it a bit cleaner for a tyre fitting session later in the week.Posted 7 years agopixelmixMember
For what it is worth, I have an email this morning from the friendly chaps at On-One (we were exchanging emails to get an order sorted which I couldn’t process the normal way online) saying that my order will be “fulfilled later this week once the tyres are booked in”.
That could be taken to mean that the tyres have arrived and just need to be “booked in”. Read into that what you will. HTH.Posted 7 years agopeakprowlerMember
Say’s who??? Still says triple Nano compound here ….. http://www.on-one.co.uk/i/q/TYSCNICEVOSS/schwalbe-nobby-nic-evo-snake-skin-folding-tyrePosted 7 years agolawnmowermanMember
Might as well get the 2010 Nobby Nics here ->
as you will know if they are really in stock or not (and you know what you are buying boxed rather than OEM stuff)?Posted 7 years ago
My previous experiences with On One have been spot on so I have no reason to doubt
It clearly lists 3 different types of Nobby Nic on the site, normal, triple compound and snakeskin sidewalls
As for 2010/2011 OEM/boxed or not, at that price I couldnt care less. Im not putting the box on my bike am I?
As for being in/out of stock, Im in no rush and will wait, they did say on website they didnt currently have them in and where waiting for a delivery, they also say it is overstock straight from manufacturer, on that basis I assumed it was 2010 OEM stock anyway (which can still be Nano triple compound)
As for next day tyres then –
1. The equivalent 2010 tyre is £35 so £13 more expensive
2. Its out of stock anyway and diverts youi to the 2011 page which is around £45, so not such a bargain
3. It states on the 2011 tyres page that they come unboxed
But let the doubters doubt and the slaggers slag at some point I should get a box full of cheap tyresPosted 7 years agobigjimSubscriber
Am I going to regret buying a non-snakeskin nobby nic? Don’t want to be stranded in the middle of nowhere by a torn sidewall or 200th puncture. The snakeskin is only in 2.4 sadly. Tempted to see if there usual insane price is in any way justified though…
…But I will look so cool in the glentress car park with these tyres. Must line up the labels on them with the graphics on my rims and talk loudly about them. 😛Posted 7 years ago
