Was it customs? Was there a problem that was found in quality control check?
Will I still keep my place in line when first shipment arrives?
So here are the details for the delay. The motor axles did not pass a final QC check which was done right before they were ready to be shipped to me. While they were plenty strong the manufacturer did not follow the diagrams on how to make them and just did what ever they wanted. In a certain type of dropout it could cause a possible issue with pinching the wires so Greyborg decided to hold off shipping them and get all new axles made to the spec they intended and change them all out. They do not want to release a product that does not meet their standards.
New axles are now 16mm with standard 10mm flats as the originals were. I'm awaiting final length measurement, but they were ordered to be longer than the original axles. Greyborg is now in the process of changing out the old axles for the new ones.
That's the reason for the delay. Typical Chinese manufacturing. They can produce good products, but if you can't afford to have someone babysit the company making your product they will do what ever they want and there is very little you can do about it.
I'll update everyone when the motors are ready to be shipped to me.
