    ... and if we just ... My Shred is finally in...

    ...just heard from the shop, after almost 4 weeks of no sleap and some serious "new bike jones'n", I get a call saying my bike finally came in and is on the stand being assembled.
    I'll try to post some pics in a few hours after I get it home and play with it for a few...

    Ditto for my Coiler after waiting nearly a month for it to get here. Looks like I will have to wait for the weekend as work schedule and distance won't allow for me to get to the shop. Can't wait for Saturday, highs in the lower 70's and good trail conditions. Man, that was a long 4 weeks! Whats up with the delay on all these bikes?

    dont know, but I have to wait for the shop that I am buying the bike from to get the bike and some extras and then they have to send it over the US and to Iceland, Im hoping that will not take to long

    ya, I have an FS, its for XC so I can't really use it to have too much fun. So I think either a Coiler Dee or Stinky Dee is gonna be the next ride in the stable..most likely the Coiler.

    Nah, 4 weeks is NOT standard. My Brother-in-law ordered a Scrap about 10 days after mine was ordered and got it the day after I got mine(today).
