    Pre Ordered...Bandit 29er Frame?

    Anyone have any insider info ( If the frames are off the boat yet ) If so ......When could one expect their pre-ordered frame from their LBS dealer( dealer said 2 weeks if I ordered ASAP.....) Been waiting 4 weeks or more now on my LG Black Bandit frame. Spring has sprung and riding the road bike is boring

    I dunno but I will tell you this- I ordered a Bandit 29 complete, sometime near the beginning of this month, and it will arrive at my LBS this Tuesday.

    I am not sure if I just timed it immensely well or if stock is different for completes vs. frames, but mine is a large and the day my LBS called Transition, it was earmarked for me. The only caveat was they were out of the brakes they spec'd so they said I could downgrade to X7 or up to X0 brakes.

    I know they sold out of their first run...i got mine a few weeks ago right after the 2nd run got here. I would probably bother your LBS to call them

    Spoke to my LBS this morning( Scholls in PA ) and he was also expecting my frame sometime last week, since it was ordered on Feb 6, 2012....They were told 2-3 weeks for it to arrive and now it's over a month. So now he's going to call them Monday and find out what's going on?

    well...the site does say what's going on. under the order history it has everything...whether it hasn't been processed, in processing, and sent. They always give tracking so...if he was expecting it last week he should have had a tracking number. I just always gave my customers tracking numbers so they would know when it was coming into the shop

    Yeah, we provide shops with a lot of insight on their order status via their dealer login. That is updated in real time and they can access it 24hrs a day. We don't have any Bandit 29 frames "on the water"... but our warehouse is slammed right now, so orders may take some extra time to go out. Plus shipping to the East Coast is 5-7 business days.

    And FYI - just checked tracking and it arrived at the shop today, signed by Mark. I would also note that the order was not placed here until "considerably after" that Feb 6th date you mentioned. Just so you know that we aren't slacking off over here...
