    1st singlespeed. waiting- what would you do?

    Wait till end of Nov early Dec for this frame:




    Pay $150 more to get the 04 model and have it in a week.

    Pay $250 more for this frame:




    I'm going to run disc brakes so the style of dropouts are a big plus. I also don't want an eccentric bb due to having to change fore/aft of saddle postion over the bb.

    I prefer to wait and thake my time and not compromise the end product. (Of course I tend to fret over every little detail to the Nth degree )and I never embark on a build without having something to ride in the interim. It only promotes making hasty decisions and fast purchases to satisfy the "gotta ride now" bug.

    I guess what I'm saying is, wait for what you really want. Did you run out and marry the first girl you dated after teh first date? (I hope not.) No you wait a bit and make sure she is everything you are looking for. Okay so maybee you made a few nimor consessions, but you see my point?

    Why wait?

    If the color bothers you then wait, but I would guess that the geometry is almost the same for the two frames. Then again I did marry the first woman I dated and would have done so after the first date too. I really hate to wait for anything, it is really a problem sometimes. Ed
