    Mine were 2-3 weeks late in April. Fairly poor communication as well.

    They’ll be worth waiting on i’m sure - I upgraded my wheels on my giant which I use as a winter / commuter bike to their all seasons wheels and they are top notch.

    A colleague has had issues with Canyon - a £3.5k enduro bike has taken about 2 months - it was apparently 'in-stock'. Just never shipped (i.e. it's ready to ship messages). He got a shipping notification on Tuesday, arrived Wednesday. Loads of emails, no response...

    Can't see what all the fuss is about myself. Once you've separated wheels into either steel or alloy, a wheel is a wheel in my book, so long as it's essentially round and runs reasonably true. Do the massive garish logos found on many expensive wheelsets make them slip through the air faster or something?

    Shhh...little secret. They were too busy training for and riding the 24hr London-Paris.

    I met several of their staff on the train to the start on 4th May.

    Upgrading my wheels on my synapse was the biggest upgrade I've ever made.
    Made a horrible winter bike a pleasure to ride, made me faster too.

    They'll be worth the wait. Had my 4Seasons set for over three and a half years, still going strong.

    PS, poor colleague. Bike has arrived, but a thread on the £900 forks is stripped. Got to send the forks back and 'wait' longer - no riding new bike.
