    Russell Day-Long Dee-Lay

    Anyone else experiencing a long build cycle with their Russell Day Long saddle? My build date was June 13 and as of today (July 6), I have not yet been advised of the seat's completion. I called last week and asked for the status and was told I'd hear from them this week...no call.

    Anyone else having a slow build?

    This is "the season" for them. I'm sure that they are swamped this time of year. I had mine built in the off season and actually got it earlier than expected. I'm sure that its frustrating, but if its any consolation you will have a huge smile on your face when you do get it and you're 400 miles down the road and your butt isn't screaming at you to STOP......

    Doug,

    Probably right...fortunately I have another bike to ride and, during the heat of summer, I rarely ride. Still, I'm really looking forward to geting my new saddle.

    If we could get the search feature to run as it used to, IIRC, it always seemed to be a wait for their seat. The good news is I don't think I've ever heard where the wait wasn't worth it. If you can, let us know what you think when you get a chance to ride on yours.

    According to their website, Tips section;
    http://www.day-long.com/seat_tips.html

    Two to Three Weeks after the assigned production date are required for completing an order under normal circumstances. Because there are so many variables involved, no promise or commitment can be made regarding shipping or delivery dates.

    Hold on, your seats are coming.

    Got the call I was looking for...the new seat is done, paid for and shipped.

    I'd love to see their build process-maybe it would explain how they can take three weeks to build a seat. They must do things in batches. Whatever they do, they build a great saddle.

    It doesn't take 3 weeks to build a seat. It means they are backed up 3 weeks.

    Enjoy your seat as it is the best money can buy!!
