    Upset waited for 16 weeks now!!!

    once upon a time in spring i ordered a bullit... it was told that the shipping time will take about 6-8 weeks to europe, ok for me... now it's the 16th week and I'm kind of frustrated... it is supposed to arrive next week, but who will give me back the lost bike months!? i want to get a discount or santa cruz should think about a compensation... do you think there is a chance?

    What the hell did you order????

    I just looked at the SC inventory and they have just about every size and color in stock.

    Sounds more like an Importing issue rather than a SC issue.

    Don't expect any compensation from SC......wait times have been an issue in the past, but SC has been pretty good with shippiing ETA this year.

    I waited 13 weeks for my Blur LT 08 size L. SC says there's a queue in production, I guess the supply doesn't quite meet the demand. First come, first served.

    I've been in your shoes waitin' on a SC frame/bike, and it ain't fun. However, be glad they are taking their time and building a good frame/producing a good product. When bike co.'s start "stackin'em high & lettin'em fly", and gettin' bikes to you in days...then you gotta worry about unsafe welds, shoddy work, etc....they, SC, are already gettin' stuff made over seas, (my guess is to help meet demands at a lil cheaper rate), lets hope it doesn't have an impact on quality.

    Hope yer wait is gettin' shorter and is worth it.....my guess is "it will be". I've got (3) SC frames and everyone has been worth the wait.

    (I'm like the others, probably a "customs issue").

    My BLT2 came about 4 months after I ordered it.

    I was upset during the wait too. Good thing I had a cheapie Cannondale to ride until the BLT2 came.

    Now I ride the BLT2 like crazy, tons of miles, to make up for the lost time during early summer.

    You will like it when it comes.
