    Bought a set of Hope Hoops.  Rear wheel arrived in a box that had been torn open.  Perhaps Royal Mail postie wanted to see if anything was worth nicking.Anyway.   Rear wheel is damaged.   Twats.  Buy British?  Fuck you Hope.

    When in business I sent hundreds of parcels a year and didn't even bother with recorded delivery on most. They all arrived safely AFAIK in that I never had a customer complaint with one exception: a present sent to family in the UK. I did the Christmas post with the post office a couple of times in the late 70s and the posties I worked with were an honest bunch. That said a friend's postie brother did time for nicking credit cards and intercepting the pin numbers then selling them on.

    I think his postie read the thread about LBS wheel builds and dropped by the LBS on the way to Garth's gaff so that LBS could jump on the wheel.
