I have used Planet Cyclery: www.planetcyclery.com and have worked with the owner ever since the guy started on eBay back in 2008 or so.

But recently I have heard terrible reviews and a few days ago, I placed an order, which still shows as "processing". I have a feeling that this is one of those shooting star companies that have a connection to sell cheap goods then when that connection is broken, the customer service and company prestige goes down the tubes.

What has been your experience with them?

I like them, it looks like they have great prices for Continental tires (e.g. Grand Prix 4000s II). I've had no problems, though my last purchase was in 9/2016. I buy when I get newsletters notifying me of tire sales, perhaps that's why I've not had delay issues.
