I'm going to go with your previous recommendation of expecting it to never show up.. That way I will be happy when it gets here in 2 months!

2 Weeks. That's pretty much the standard line from anyone in the bike industry for anything. I'm looking forward to it though, more so since my frame cracked last week.

haha 2 weeks. I love it. But now we're going on any day.......Yeah, let's keep it at two weeks. But again, this is accoarding to Lewis, the marketing manager over at Coust. Anyway, I was told today the frames were officially shipped the 16th of Febuary. I was also told it roughly takes 2 to 3 weeks to reach the US from Taiwan. I'd do the math but I know the answer is going to be off.

By the way, I was told the frames are coming naked, with the stickers to arrive with Steve Arrowood when he comes back from Europe in two weeks. We will ship the stickers separately so you can decide what you want to do with them when you get them.

I'm clinically pessimistic and untrusting (as diagnosed by a mattress salesman who was pissed at me) so I'll continue doubting it's arrival while secretly hoping that it does actually get here soon.

Thanks for the info Graham and Andrew.

I had to wait 6 months when I got my crescent
10 months when I got my megamo equip pro

Ive heard
"they said it shipped" and "its waiting in customs" so many times

2 weeks is a walk in the park.
Exactly my point. It's to be expected in the bike industry. More so with trials stuff.

I waited for 9 months for my Specialist only to cancel the order and order a custom made Curtlo which was supposed to take 2 months and took 9. While waiting for the Curtlo, the rep from Ellsworth called and said they had completely redesigned the Specialist and it was ready. I was told "two weeks" every two weeks for 9 months on both counts.

From Doug Curtiss (Curtlo) I was also told:
"we're waiting for your down tube"
"we're waiting for your dropouts"
"we're waiting for your der. hanger"
"the frame is at the powder coater"
"we're waiting for the bottom bracket shell" -> but I thought it was already at the powder coater?
"the powder coat orange peeled, he has to re-do it"

when I finally got the bike, NOTHING was correct. What a let down. :down:

I have two expectations from the Coust frame...1. that it's aligned correctly and 2. that it's aligned correctly. What? Did I repeat myself?

No matter, I'm going to build up my cracked Curtlo so I can ride while I wait for the Coust and hope that it's here by the time Seven Springs rolls around.

Since Steve is with the Cous bros he should have them autograph the decals beafore he brings them back to the States.
