I placed an order for the F8 saddle top cap on June 24th. I received confirmation but nothing of a timeline for completion.

Is he pretty good at delivering in a timely manner?

He was also very responsive by email for me. If you have any questions, just write him.

If you're in another country shipping/clearing customs will be the most likely place you'll incur a delay.

I like doing business with Berk, and will again when I need another saddle, but it can take a bit to get something from there into the US for example.

I ordered the same Berk saddle clamp for my Pinarello F10. It was actually delivered to me in the US before I had a chance to send the PayPal payment to Berk. I guess Jure believed I was a trustworthy buyer.

It's all downhill from here, except for the uphills.

Agree, he’s an awesome guy to deal with. He’s replacing a saddle where the clear coat chipped without any issues

Got the item three days ago. I'll do business with him again.

Yes. It is easy to install. I used a little carbon assembly paste. Torque to 5Nm instead of the 8Nm indicated on the seat post.

I've had an excellent experience ordering from Jure Berk.
I wanted an item that is not standard (lukna saddle, recovered), so it wasn't in stock. Got it within a week, maybe less.
Responsive, fast, great product.
