    I know how it is like! I have to wait 15 days... I also ordered from Full Cycles, since they are restricted to ship outside of the US by Yeti now, I had it shipped to a friend and she will forward it to Germany... so my wait is even longer!

    You are getting the complete bike? At least looking for the new parts keeps me occupied meanwhile

    Cheers,
    Cris

    boo freakin hoo

    I had to wait 4 smeging months for my ARC. You know what it's like to have all the parts you need, minus the frame, just sitting there waiting.


    stop whining.

    Get on your beater and ride it every single day until the new bike gets here. That way you will be all to familiar with the ride and your first Yeti ride will be oooohhhh soooo sweet!

    Man, I need to give Will a call and see about getting my referral bonus. I seem to be generating him some business. He really is great to work with and has the best deals too.

    I waited well over 3 months for my 575. Just be happy your color choice is available, drink heavily and shag the SO a bunch. You'll be fine

    Could be worse -- just think if you had ordered a Nomad or anything else with Santa Cruz on it. Cruise on over to the SC board and check out the moans and groans going on there. Their waits are measured in months and years. one reason I didn't get the Nomad...that and the extra $2,000 I was going to need. Hated to sell both kidneys.
    What, me hurry?

    you're right!

    i geuss i really have nothing to complain about! it sounds like other folks have had to wait a lot longer than I. my past experiences with new bike nirvana involved walking into the LBS, dropping X amount of coin, and riding the baby home by the roundabout way of the local trails. this is the first time i have had one shipped to me and had to wait. i geuss i will use this time to appreciate the ol' trek fuel 90 and get it ready to handover to the wifey. counting the days...
