One is reminded of the Australian comedian Kevin Bl**dy Wilson for some reason. He used to sing avery rude song entitled:

"Santa Claus, you Cnut, Where's Me F***in' Bike"


Sorry Jez, not gloating. It will be so much better when it does turn up.


Ahhh Kevin bl**dy Wilson! Such an appropriate song for this time of year, and indeed this thread.

Got to be a nightmare waiting for THIS frame though...

was it coming from abroad?

I heard of someone having a problem with a bike frame that was sent form overseas, as it was held by cutoms for sometime.

I also know of a bloke that recieved parts that had been cut into bitswith a letter from customs stating 'your goods may have been damaged during inspection' !!! :shock: but i think thats a pretty extreme situation
