how did you find your dealings with Radon and Bike Discount.de?

I've just ordered a Slide 9 HD, hopefully should arrive next week sometime. I had a quick go on a Swoop and a Slide when i was in Germany last year, you see them all over the place over there, haven't seen one on the go over here yet.

All went ok.
The bike was delivered by DHL freight. Tracking went quiet when it got to the uk so had to call them to find out what was happening. They arranged a day for delivery.

The box did have some damage when it arrived so make sure you open it with the driver. Mine was fine, well wrapped up inside and it'll come in a big box built with wheels on etc.

How long did yours take to come once it was in the UK mate?
I've ordered a Slide 26 LE and Parcelforce are bringing it, I think they've lost it Surprised

Ordered on a saturday.
Shipped via DHL fright on the Tuesday.
Arrived in the UK on the Wednesday
It was in Cardiff that night.
Tracking Didn't change on the Thurday or Friday.
Called them on the Friday night to find out where it is, took a while to find out. They called me back to arrange delivery for the Monday.

Did Bike-discount send you the tracking ?

Just got my packaged email and have been told to expect my tracking one from DHL later today. If I'm on the ball and ready to call parcelforce Wed/Thurs I might have it for the weekend Smile
