- Trek – Epic fail!, one annoyed customer
Had a Gary Fisher X-Caliber 29er on back order for a few months. Was assured by my local dealer (not a Fisher dealer, but a large Trek dealer) that there was a new shipment of bikes in April and one was allocated to me. Been chasing as not heard a bean.
Called into the shop on my way home and they finally got some answers – apparently there was a cock up on Treks system and there was never any bikes so I've been left high and dry…
Local dealer very apologetic and said they will try and fins me an alternative – but there's not a lot they can do.
so – anyone know if there are any GF X-caliber bikes in stock anywhere? I'm led to believe that Chevin Cycles are in the same boat, having let 5 or 6 customers down in the same position as me.Posted 8 years ago
I would make a trip if they had the right bike, but they don't . My point was that I'd been assured there was stock due and was happy to wait close to 2 months for it to arrive – only to be told it never existed. I could have been tracking down something else in that time.
Seems despite all the 29ers being ridden on here they're still niche and manufacturers won't commit decent stock levels to the UKPosted 8 years agoTravisMember
When I was younger I got a lift from Malvern to Swindon, then picked up my new bike (Total Fitness back in the days) then road it back home.
If it is something you really want, then a day out of the way is a very small price to pay. Or that it's just not that important enough
 as above I'd put the tent on the car, and try something in the different part of the world whilst I was there too Posted 8 years agoDracSubscriber

Well seems sensible to me as there's not that many who ride them on here. Divide that by the few manfacturers that make them and it's a very narrow Market. Still no good for you I suppose.Posted 8 years agodefaultslipperMember
i have been working in the ae bike shop for a few weeks now. there is no 29er in the Ae bike shop for sale- we only had one in yesterday because it was in for a service. we would have the same problems as any other bike shop getting the stock in. but there must be a 29er sitting around somewhere that would be of use?
good luck!Posted 8 years ago
