Not being an apologist for FM, but I ordered an XR a couple of weeks ago, shipping was supposed to happen within a few days, got delayed few days with a shipping issue to my location, I wasn't notified - I got ticked-off and canceled my order.
I sat on it a few hours and sulked. The wife then suggested I try and a dealer up here (didn't know we had any) - we actually have 2 dealers, and one had an XR left, so I had it sent over.
When I talked with FM about my new XR on the phone a couple days later, I asked them what their staff size was - turns out FM is around 40 people.
That's a very small number of people that are literally changing the industry, producing one of the most innovative products the sport has ever seen.
If I'd of known that, I'd of been more patient . . . and not have had snarky comments for my answers on a marketing survey I filled-out (sorry FM).
I'm not telling any of you guys how to feel. It's just that . . . I get it.
All I can say, is that if the Pint is even half as life changing (bruises included) as the XR, it's worth waiting for.
Better for them to workout any final production problems with the board now, and have it right when it reaches your hands.
. . . best to you guys, it'll be worth the wait.
