Not only do I pay more ordering parts from the LBS, but now I also have to wait several weeks for an order to arrive. That’s just BS. I am on the verge of call up the shop and cancelling the order.

    I was hoping to start building it up tonight, but kind of hard to get even the basics started with out a head set.

    Parts come in?

    They just placed the order on Monday, I will lucky if they are in by Friday. The biggest thing holding up the build is the headset

    My bike is just so beat up and with the baby on the way there is no extra $$ for a new one. Argh.

    With a baby on your way, its time not $$ that will keep you from riding!!

    When is she due?

    Oh, and that is one nice looking 5-spot. My LBS has one hanging from the ceiling.

    about 2/3rd of my parts order is waiting for me at the bike shop, most importantly the headset is in and the bike shop is open late tonight so they can press it in for me. Hoping to have most of the bike built up tonight

    .
    June!

    Presuming I had a mt bike it would be easier to get in rides since I can go and ride and be home in 2 or 3 hours tops. vs. a full day expedition for skiing
