Just had an email from headtube telling me my Yo! is on its way.. 4-6 weeks in transit.. Gunna be the longest 4-6 weeks I've ever known.. :D

Waited patiently for one to turn up and then pounced! I am so excited about getting this bike it's incredible, feel like a teen again when bikes did it all.. No girls, no beer, no work, just bikes.. :lol:

Just wanted to share my excitement with y'all and invite any stories of dudes waiting [or having waited] for bikes to arrive!!!!

Im going to have to go into rehab or something. I think Im maxed out with new purchases. Thank god most of the reckless purchases have turned up.

BOLX has arrived today so thats the last of the frames/bikes.

Building is the next stage - 2 many projects...

No need for anything new as yet. Need to shift some stuff methinks. :?

Not very exciting but I had to wait 3 months for a set of Girvin Crosslinks to turn up from the States - though I did stipulate surface mail to the seller to keep costs down!

As we have all heard,
Three and a half month wait for the trimble :shock: , :evil: And I paid the $110 shipping he quoted -the tw*t sent it snailmail costing $35 :!: :!: :!: tracking number included but problem with tracking on sea/land shipping being once it left the shores of the states, that was it until it got to your door :!: , your just left wondering where the fr*g it is and if its actually gonna turn up :?:

Just grateful I haven't been stung on the old goverment Tax con thingy.

:x (must let it go - got it now-----deep breaths)
