    Default UberPens

    Some of you may know I recently got a few vintage pens after claiming that I have no interest in vintage pens. Part of that was because I stumbled upon an interesting vintage pen at a good price on UberPens. At the time, I knew nothing about the company, so I took a gamble and ordered the pen.

    Now I know a lot more, and own more vintage pens from UberPens. What gave me the security with this company is that they restore their pens before selling them. This does add to the cost. But, it also means that the pen will work. For someone like me who is uncomfortable doing more than really basic repair, that's a great thing. As a bonus, it has even given me the confidence to look at some other vintage pens which do require some work.

    The company has been prompt in delivery, the pens are well packaged and in good condition, and the website is easy to navigate. It's like they're trying to be the Goulet Pens of the vintage world. I was really impressed when I ordered a pen while being unaware that they were running a special if I typed in a discount code. They contacted me to tell me that they were refunding that money even though I didn't put in the discount code. I was impressed by that, especially since I never would have known.

    In the interest of full disclosure, I am having an issue with one pen I ordered (it's late) but I have every confidence that the company will resolve it. Hopefully this will be by locating the pen. If not, then by refunding the cost of the pen.

    Anyway, for anyone wishing to dip their toes into the vintage world, I fully recommend UberPens.

    For those interested: the pen has arrived, though I still need to get to the Post Office when it's open. Truthfully, my location in a rural part of North Dakota means that I'm off the beaten path, and things take longer to get to me. I've struggled with this a bit over the years, but that is an issue to take up with the US Postal Service, not any particular company.

    Like you, I share your opinion, and the fact that this business restores its pens before selling them gives me confidence. This doesn't raise the price. But it also means that the pen will function. That's fantastic for someone like me who doesn't feel confident performing much beyond simple fixes. Additionally, bitlife it provided me the self-assurance to review some other old pens that needed some maintenance.

    Brakes are crucial for your safety while riding a BMX bike. There are two types of brakes available, rim brakes and disc brakes. Rim brakes are the most common and are inexpensive. They work by applying pressure on the rim and slowing down the bike. Disc brakes are more advanced and provide better stopping power. They are also more expensive than rim brakes. https://bmxbikeshub.com/best-freestyle-bmx-bikes/
