Shouldn't have.
If the guy had paid he would have been told where/who to collect them from.

However in the absence of a confirmed order from Denis, the 'bike shop' would be a possible alternative.

But, as I said in post No 2, having them through Denis gives peace of mind knowing they are there waiting for you. Far better than trying shops speculatively.

Hi Tony,

Sorry, I didn't mean to imply that Dean's service sucked, just that it sucks for us to now have to make our tires last for another 10,000 km until Japan. I've edited the post accordingly.

As I said, Denis's tyre pick up point in Novosibirsk is with Stas (Stanislav) - as still listed on their Website MOTOREZINA.RU - свежая моторезина по разумным ценам. motokolesa, мотоколеса, моторезина, резина для мотоциклов

Navalarchitect's reference to a 'Bike Shop' was additional information for Novosibirsk and was NOT suggesting that is where you collect Denis's tyres. The bike shop did not have his sizes so he thinks Denis is a better bet.

If I am correct and you went to the wrong place, I think your header "This sucks" is less than fair to someone who gives great service at very reasonable prices.

Let us know, please.

I've got a couple of e-mails back and forth between us but perhaps my last e-mail confirming tire sizes and asking about payment was lost in the Ethernet. I will e-mail you to see if there is anything that can be arranged before we leave Russia for Mongolia next week.

I apologise for any inference that your service is not good and have edited my previous post.

Ekke, I can not find your deposit payment and confirmed order.
