Subject: [CR]Slow Shipments from Europe

Lately shipments from Europe have been very slow. It may well have a lot less to do with individual sellers than the post 9-11 cautions in admitting packages. I often order Vittoria tires from there, where they can still be found at a 50% discount and they have been taking at least twice as long to get here. I had hinted at a negative feedback rating to one dealer from E-Bay and they were very concerned and swore the package should have been in my hands. I decided to trust them and wait another 10 days before acting and, sure enough, about 8 days later the package arrived.
Patience, my friends.
