=>BEWARE - PURCHASING FROM NEWSON SPORTEC (spokes & nipples)

Post by Bison_69 » Jun 23 2017 1:42pm

Hi to all eBikers,

I purchased some spokes & nipples in april and I never received them... I succeeded to reach the seller (Shen) in May to notify that my goods
never reached Canada and was sitting in Taiwan permanently... they then send me another order (in May) which did end up again stuck in Taiwan.
https://www.newsonsportec.com/

Then... I have been waiting 3 months without success to obtain that order which I will never get... and this is odd because since 2 weeks now I can't reach the dam seller at Newson Sportec with either email (newsonsportec@gmail.com / chihlungshen@hotmail.com)

So... be advised NOT to order from this place ever.... hoppefully Paypal will be able to claim from this bad company (which used to be a good one)

Now the alternative in Canada for regular spokes (unfortunately) is Spoke Service in B.C.

Cheers

eBikes.ca offer some ready made spokes.... but are limited in gauge sizes.

BUT ''Spoke Service'' have a large custom made length variety...

You have part of that backwards:

Grin's spokes are all custom-cut-to-length; just put in the length you need. They don't have ready-made ones.
http://www.ebikes.ca/shop/electric-bicy ... pokes.html
They'll also build your wheel if you want, though I don't know how good they are at it--I just know they're good at cutting the spokes the length you want.


FWIW, regarding the other place: if they're custom-made, then they wouldn't "have" any variety of them at all. ;) If they *just* "have" a large variety, then they're not custom-made. They could do both, have a large variety of existing spokes, *plus* custom-make others, of course, but that's not what your statement says. ;)
