    My frame and the LBS

    Got done with my ride today, cleaned up my bike, and found this....



    I took it over to my LBS, where I bought it from. The owner looked at it and said "Oh F#$K", which sounds funny with his Dutch accent. He took a couple pics, wrote down the frame number, and is emailing Specialized today because the bike is still under warranty. Since it has to go from wherever the Specialized warehouse is to Miami to catch a boat, I should see my new frame in about 3 weeks. Two weeks if I get lucky and the frame gets on the boat by Tuesday.

    I'm not holding my breath on the 3 weeks. If this were in the states, I would expect it sooner. But the fact that it has to go by boat, and containers don't ship until full to save shipping costs, then get here and get through customs, I wouldn't be surprised at a month.
    It was either that, or drop $150 to air freight it quicker.

    Frame finally made it through Customs, and the LBS fixed it all up for me. I got a 2013 frame for a replacement.
