One of the last reasons that explains a price increase or a non-existent stock is logistics. In fact, Gearbest negotiates the shipping price of its products to Europe according to the space available in the rail freight containers.
As we approach the ends year events, the containers are full. EUC and other electrical devices take up a lot of space. So the shipping price can quickly rise very high.

@KevinvdV Completely normal. It's on a train somewhere on the way from China, or waiting to be put on that train.

Usually, people never get any shipping statuses/updates until the wheel has arrived in Europe. It can very well happen you get your first update the day you get the wheel delivered. "Your wheel is somewhere in the Netherlands" on the same day you get the package. It's not like precise shipping tracking inside a country or the EU.

So don't worry, everything is proceeding exactly as one would expect. It will arrive, maybe as a complete surprise:efee47c9c8:

@KevinvdV relax. I am in the same position as you, I couldn't miss out on this opportunity. Guess what, I ordered a V10f from Ali express, mid October and yet the wheel still hasn't arrived, It is just a busy period right now. I am confident your wheel will arrive.

Great news @KevinvdV!

I also checked mine after seeing your post, both deliveries are showing tracking progress also to the UK - thanks for the heads-up!

I've received an update today to say the train carrying my order has arrived in Lodz, Poland.

I can also see that Gearbest have generated UPS shipping labels going from Germany, so I'm guessing it'll be transshipped from Poland to Germany, then Germany via UPS to the UK (in my instance). I'm hoping once it's in the hands of good old trusty UPS, it'll be a swift journey over for the last leg fingers crossed!
