Hi!

I just want to ask if anyone knows where Superlite is!? He didn't answer to my emails. I ordererd a pair of his speedplay inserts half a year ago. They came back to him so that he sent them to me again. OK that was in september. I know that I've to add about 2 months for the customs check but now it is december!!!

What would you guess should I do now? I can't ignore the imagination that I've been ripped off!

Hi

Allthough I dont know where superlite is, if you still want the speedplay inserts try WWW.Hi-Techbikes.com, Hank has them for both the Zeros and X series.

Its a long shot, and maybe not fair on them, but perhaps the guys at ZG know how to contact him. He seemed fairly friendly with them. Just an idea :noidea:

I've try to contact him soon. Not sure what his status is atm.

For those wondering why he hasn't posted for so long, he crashed his car and needed $$ so had to sell his bikes :doh:

I want to vote for him as WW of the year. I sent he a PM the other day and have not heard back. It is highly unusual for someone so prolific to disappear so suddenly and I am concerned.

Yes it is a bit unfortunate about Superlite. As I step back and consider all his postings etc. on this board over the last year I get the feeling that he may be having some personal struggles.

While there is absolutely no excuse for taking money and not delivering the goods (fraud in any country) perhaps some compassion is in order. I hope he is OK and I miss his informative posts and hope he returns soon.

And Superlite if you are reading this, and I am sure that you are, please contact the people you might owe product or money to and be straight with them about your situation - of course they will understand.

Does anyone know his name? It would be strange to call Colo. Cyclist and ask, "Is Superlite there"? :lol:
