    Chesini Prima, oversize Columbus spirit road frame, custom geometry, black, battleship grey and powder blue colour scheme, yet to decide on Sram RED/Force or dura-ace/ultegra. Deda finishing kit, arione saddle and either easton road tubeless or my DT240’s built onto some wide rims.
    Ordered last week, ETA 6-8 weeks.

    I’m waiting on a Chromag Samurai65.

    Actually, it’s fine. I have a perfectly good bike that I’m happily riding. I’ve got quite a few bits and pieces I’m busy selling, and I’m spending some time and energy specc’ing the new build. So patience is coming fairly easy.

    it’s a bit unusual to say the least (well for me anyhoo).

    cannot wait to get it and a huge thank you to jookychap for his kindness πŸ˜€

    I had to wait an agonising week for my R5ca to be fettled by the shop I bought it from, t’was the longest I’ve had to wait since back in the day when waiting for my Klein Attitude..

    I hate waiting, I’m an impatient sod. πŸ™„

    I’m waiting on some cranks, so I can ride my bike without it making a horrific creaking noise. I’m also waiting for this cold to piss off so I can do anything without feeling like death.

    Presumably. Everyone except me that is. 2×10 double and bash for me. There’s some big hills round here and I don’t have the legs for 1×10.

    [edit] they were pretty much redundant when used with their proprietary chainstay mounted chainguide. It’s very good. [/edit]

    yes, I’ve got one of those chainstay things and am running 1×9 (so no clutch mech) and have lost the chain a couple of times – was thinking of fitting a top guide tbh!

    I only need a gear inner and outer to finish my build, my birthday cheques don’t clear until next Monday, gosh it’s going to be a painful wait. I’ve been without a mtb since September πŸ™

    Pivot Mach 6. Ordered the frame 3 months ago. On it’s way now though as far as I know. Worth the wait!

    Salsa El Mar in M, due in the UK at the end of next week (Ison had run out of stock by the time I actually ordered a month ago; frame having to be shipped in from the States…)

    I’ve been seriously thinking about one of these:

    Currently a 12 month wait for them. 😯

    Then again, it’s been reported that the wait time for a Ricky Feather is about 18 months.

    That is lovely. Not sure whether I’d ride that or hang it on my living room wall.

    I don’t think I’d maintain my enthusiasm for a year to 18 months waiting.

    I suspect I’m not the right person for a ‘bike for life’.

    waiting for my pre-ordered codeine πŸ™‚ I believe the build date is the 19th… excited much! Getting the CCDB Air set up in time fore the EWS might be more of a challenge though :/

    nosaintangel – Full bike. Just the basic Ultegra mechanical build but it’s still floating somewhere about the legal weight limit with that. Given the spec of my current road bike I’m expecting it to be quite a change!

    Ordered my frame in September!
    Apparently its due to land in the UK on the 22nd of this month.
    Seeing is believing!

    I had pre-ordered one of the new Cotic Rockets… The first delay hurt but was alright, I was still excited. Sadly, when the second one came the other week, the parts were ready to be built onto it and I couldn’t wait any longer for a new bike so got a cracking deal on a Covert Carbon. After its first proper ride around the Ladybower loop yesterday I no longer feel upset about the delay.

    Just beaten to it by tangoman, but I’m still keeping the faith (either that or I’m just to stubborn for my own good – had ALL the parts ready to hang off it since August last year).

    I just realised that I bought my Carbon Nomad last March (2013) after already waiting some months for a Cotic Rocket!
