Just ordered some clip on aero bars from Fat Birds, or at least think I did. However, I didn't get any confirmation of the order on completion ot to my email. Do they usually do this pretty much instantaneously or does it take a while for an email to come through? I don't want to hassle them with a phone call if the order has gone through but don't want to order again and end up with two!

    In the time it took to type that you could have called them to check...

    Confirmation from BA takes a few hours, IME, so Fat Birds isn't the only company like this. I wouldn't worry.

    Yes, but I didn't want to waste their time in chasing it if it is normal as I said in my OP. Thanks for your helpful comments though.

    Just to answer my own question, the initial order didn't process but when I re-sent it the confirmation was instantaneous.

    Me too. Too much ogling the Girls in Knitwear / Lycra threads has lowered my morals yet further...

    I knew when posting it would get that sort of reaction :lol: Couldn't think of another way to phrase it, I guess their website name is clever marketing (especially for the sorts of pervs who are into cycling from what I can tell!).
  • Want to order me a new stem while your at it?

    It took a few hours to get a confirmation from some sites when ordering things, some sites do it instantaneoulsy, and some take a while. I normally give it over night before I check up on things.

    I had an issue authorising my frame purchase.. Slightly embarassing to tell the bank "Yeah, thats right i was spending £800 at Fat Birds!!"

    You'll now get two sets of clip-ons, and they'll refuse to take one back :lol:
