Devil's advocate here. How did you cancel the order if you can't contact them?

I bet they just show up at your doorstep soon.

I take it all back - it was stuck in customs. UK Parcelforce did not inform me that there was a charge to pay, so it was just left...

Managed to track it down through some diligent internet searching and telephoning. Paid the customs and should be on its way now...

Good ending :) Similar things happened to me a few times. Something with the rings..LOL. I got mine from UK (those in my bike currently). They mixed up numbers and it became so bad, they were stuck at customs for almost 3 weeks!!! I had to make multiple trips and despite paying duties, I had to waste up to 5 hours at a time talking and waiting to accomplish nothing. It was a Fedex and Customs fault - ignorance and sloppiness. I was actually lucky to get them at the end, as they were marked to go back to the sender.

Building an engine from random parts. This will eventually morph into building a bike from random parts - if it ever happens. Need a frame to begin with.

Let's hope "All's well that ends well"

Got them in. They look great, but as StanG said the markings are the same.

... well, they are miles better than the ones that come out, so I'll carry on.
