    Not really a LBS, but still a useful review. Universe of one, so far:

    I ordered a bottom bracket from them. It was shipped via USPS. Tracking and all, fun to watch progress. USPS said delivered Thursday, Nov 30, but it wasn't there. I initiated a case with USPS, they couldn't find it. I'm assuming a porch pirate is active in my 'hood.

    I called Worldwide to let them know, told them I don't expect a new shipment since it's not their fault, but they may want to initiate a claim with USPS.

    They shipped me another BB, no charge, no other questions. How cool is that??

    But I'm having this second one sent to work, not home.:thumbsup:

    I'd recommend these guys.

    I have used them several times. The fact that they have a location here in So Cal usually has orders arriving in short time.

    One order was lost during shipment and I reported it to them. They sent out a replacement and asked to be notified if the original order ended up arriving, which it did. I sent it back to them.

    I do recommend them. :thumbsup:

    Today I had a second attempt on a wine delivery. When I pulled up in front of the house the customer's garage was open. I saw a nice Transition Smuggler hanging on the wall. Of course as soon as he comes to the door I asked about his bike. He says come check it out total salesman like. Turns out he is the senior VP of sales at Worldwide. He also does all of the product reviews and videos. Totally cool guy. He is now my best friend.

    I have been eyeballing the Smuggler for a while now. If he hooks you up, tell him that you have a friend who....

    Now, on another matter, I was almost run off the freeway the other day by a crazy UPS delivery truck driver. He was swooping in and out of lanes, a complete psycho. Scared several drivers around him, too. I thought these drivers had to have perfect driving records? No freakin’ way this driver does. End rant, lol.

    Haha! Just like any other job UPS has its wackos too. As a matter of fact one of the most aggressive drivers I've seen has 25 years of safe driving!

    Did you get past the bike to the wine? What kind of wine is this gentlemen drinking? :)

    Customers generally give me a bottle for helping with their wine deliveries when they're not home. I'd rather get bike stuff. :thumbsup:
