Question Durobumps lead time?

I ordered these back on the 6th (the receipt rounded to the 7th) well aware of the 8-10 business day lead time. I tried emailing them a couple times with no response on an update?

Anyone else have to wait a while for these? Not sure what to do at this point.

Curtis is unfortunately a one man show and incredibly busy with the way that his business blew up recently. I know he was waiting on some stuff to get powder coated, but that shouldn't affect 4th gen bumps unless he's waiting on a shipment of rubber too. If you emailed him you should get a response at some point. I know he sees emails far more often than he sees PMs on the forums.

Understandable. I emailed a couple of times, and no response. He seems to have messaged me back on social media telling me to email though haha.

He should seriously consider expanding a bit quicker - just my opinion.

He hired someone to handle his social media I believe so it probably wasn't him telling you to email. hahah. @Plastics guy

Holy moly, these are even more expensive than Wheeler's Super Bumps. I am staggered. They look like a similar product, is there some advantage of the durobump over the superbump?

I ran Wheeler's bumps for about 2 years before switching to durobumps. There's a huge difference in comfort and bottoming out with durobumps. They soak up most things perfectly outside of constantly bottoming out your suspension.

For a small business / one man shop, I'd say he's doing pretty well for himself. If he blows up too quickly then sales and demand drops, he'll be in a slump and maybe have to let that person go. He's better off pushing out his lead times and then delivering sooner if they're ready.

Under promise, over deliver.

Except for in this case, he's over-promising and under-delivering. I still haven't received an update on my order, 8-10 business day lead time included. However, I'm a patient man.

Let me see if I can get a hold of him. I'd say they're worth the wait.

He said to email him.

I told him I tagged him on this post and that you've already emailed him a couple times. Hopefully you'll hear something soon. He's incredibly busy.
