Reaching Colin

Anyone have luck contacting Colin lately? I'm in need of a pair of axles and can't seem to contact him.

Try looking at his website:

https://sites.google.com/a/colinhyde...ions.com/home/

There is a phone number listed there that usually gets results.

good luck!

@avionstream - Yes google is. And did that's where I started. I had hoped my simplest inquire here stating that I haven't been able to contact him would have provided enough inference I had actually made an attempt. I've lurked here a lot gaining info from what seems like genuinely helpful and friendly community. Is there a reason for this comment? Something I'm missing out there that would be helpful?

Back to the regular programing. From my googling, It appears that Colin has been generally very responsive in the past and has a great track record. Albeit with a recent lapse around the beginning of the year as reported in this forum via a little searching. Sounds like he had a lot on his plate with the business at that time.

Yes his website is out there, but email, VM, and PM here have come up dry to date. My thought is that he either is done specing & selling axles or somethings happened with him or the business. If the later, my best wishes go out to him.

Colin is a friend of mine, I just sent him a link to this thread.

When I saw him this past weekend, he admitted to being swamped and is disappointed in his ability to keep up with the demands of phone, voice mail, email, etc..

Just heard from him! Seems like a great chap, with a booming business who is trying to balance demand and how to handle it.

Glad you two got to talk. He is incredibly knowledgeable and with that comes a lot of demands on his time. Best of luck with your project.

Colin

I've been trying to get in touch with Mr. Hyde but have had no luck. I hope he is alright.
Any one know his street address?

Yeah. Same here. I ordered a pair of axles about a month ago - or at least my credit card was charged. His voice mailbox is full and he hasn't responded to my emails.

I have no idea if or when my axles will show up.

Sigh. :'(

He is just very busy, and travels and has family. We've teased him about getting an answering service. Our Axles took about 6 weeks.

I seriously do hope he's OK. It's just a little anxiety-inducing when someone has a pretty substantial chunk of your change and then disappears into the witness protection program.

It's been 4 weeks so far for my axles.

I'll just slam down a couple bottles of blood pressure pills and not worry about it.

Sounds like he should hire a office manager to track orders and respond to customers.

I believe that Colin is headed to Jackson Center for Alumapalooza. I've sent him a note making him aware of the recent posts to this thread. Hopefully he will be getting in touch soon.
