    They're so awesome aren't they - ordered something late afternoon last week and got it next day. Love em.

    Posties usually have competitions to see who can go the longest in shorts, that`s why some wear them even when it`s snowing.
    Smarter than the average bear.

    Our postman is a MTBr as well - shorts all year round. There are some gates at the end of my drive (sounds good eh?) and one day when I was expecting a large but unbreakable item to be delivered while I was out, I left a note asking him to chuck it over the gates. Since then he lobs everything over the gates - phones, routers, helmets, forks - he just doesn't care :)
  • Wow!

    I knew that they were fast, they have ALWAYS been super quick for me but I will be writing to their CEO straight away.........they have never sent me a postie in shorts!!!

    Boy have I been missing out? :wink:

    i've been waiting 2-3 days for something now :(
  • I ordered some clamps for my Code brakes on Friday. Took the Parcelforce option to get them quick. Got an email on Mnnday to say the order had been processed and goods despatched. Was working from home yesterday and guess what? They didn't arrive!
    I should have opted for the Royal Mail delivery option, it would have been quicker.

    And.. just to think this was a revenge order because Wiggle didn't give me free Haribos with my last £180 order..
  • i orderd 1 item from them and the delivery was rapid. since then i order all my parts from them and i dont even shop around now as they are cheaper than anyone else even ebay!
  • Tehy're quick... but I think they hate me. Always manage to censored up my order :(

    Oh come on, that clearly isn't true, they may be cheapest sometimes, but far from all the time!

    phew... i've got it now... postroom was asleep :)
  • I ordered a mobi off them on a wednesday before 4 oclock they said two day delivery so thats friday in my book never got it until following tuesday when I emailed them they were unhelpful and didn,t seem too worried. I wanted it to take on a weekend in north Wales to wash 5 bikes I was fuming (but polite).

    So use others now!
    Its all up hill down here
  • i ordered stuff this morning and it was delivered last week! pure awesomeness.
