Bustacrap - you have been a member on here for a mere month and at least 70% (by my rough reckoning) of your posts have been nothing but inane tripe!!!!.

Please post something useful at least once a day to make amends.

You implied that he was stupid if you read your post.


OK, to be fair, I concede that you might have a point. However, in my defence I think it's fair to say that it is only insulting to call someone stupid if you actually think they aren't. Otherwise it's just an observation......

I recently placed a large order with Ribble and made sure all the items were showing as in stock as i needed some of the parts for a trip overseas and even paid the £4 for next day delivery , once the order turned up half the bits were missing and it stated to follow at a later date , which was a bit of a deal breaker for me .They might be the cheapest for a reason hence they dont have the systems and manpower to cope with delivering good cuctomer service and stock control .

So you came in a thread created by someone you say posts utter tripe. So you've been reading it, physically clicked on a link and then typed in it. Surely you have better things to do than spend time out of your life on 'utter tripe'? Simply ignore the thread??

Everyone meet Bustacapp and his mother Srayment.


Or could they be the same person?

Just saying, it wouldn't be the first time someone created a second forum persona on the same forum to agree with their posts. :twisted:

It's difficult to come down on one side or the other with this one.
What we need are people posting up positive company stories, to provide balance to the bad. In my experience though when a company does well, people don't post up about it, but when a company drops the ball, boy does the interweb lines burn with vitriol (and sometimes it IS justified).

Thinking about it things are about to get really interesting as its the UK Cycle show coming up soon which probably means that Ribble will shut down for a week whilst they set up and attend the show. I guess if the phones are off just go to the show and ask for an update on your orders? :wink:

It takes spine to complain? What sort of slackjawed world do you live in? And who would I complain to? The automated telephone machine or the automated email machine????

How about you do as your name suggests and shut up!

no history with ribble so nothing relevant to add to the debate...

however have been bursting to sing the praises of cyclestore.co.uk - ordered a endura jacket last week late Tuesday pm - and had the jacket Thursday am - and I live outside of the UK. Pretty awesome i thought. Especially as I very nearly did not place the order with them as thought their website looked very dated and did not inspire confidence. However they were the cheapest and one of few people with stock.

To the OP I would suggest a little patience and understanding. A week or two is nothing - a few years back I waited 6 months for my Project One Trek .... sad times.

Not in this day and age. Goods should be dispatched the next day of the order at the latest. The only delay should be with transit.

Agreed, my order took 6 working days, simply not good enough and will not be ordering again.

1. Ribble almost always has the best price.

2. I order from them often.

3. I order from them if I have the time to wait.

4. If I need something in a hurry, I order it somewhere else, and pay the premium for expedience.
