Wait or no?

Ok heres my situation. I got out of work today and had a message on my cell phone from the guy from the bike shop. He told me before that he could order the '07 Stolen Wrap. I was psyched about it and I put the $100 dollar deposit in for him to order it. The message said that he couldn't get the bike in until the first week of May. He has a 2006 Fit AM in the shop. I've asked about the bike once but I didn't really get many replies. I want a bike sooner than later but if I wait I want it to be worth it. So the question is, should I get the Fit or wait until may to get the Stolen Wrap. Or possibly get something else? Not the dk 6-pack

http://www.danscomp.com/101425.php?cat=BIKES ---Stolen I would get in May.

http://www.danscomp.com/101951.php?cat=BIKES ---Fit I could get this weekend.

I know a lot of you don't like me but I still respect your opinions so please help me.

Thank you.

Can you tell me why? The owner of the bike shop has told me nothing but good things about it. I know its his job to sell things but he rides to. He also builds custom frames.

Word. Wait for the Stolen, it's much better. Good things come to those who wait.

Bottom bracket means **** all once you get it set up.

Cromo>**** compressed into steel.

How? I'm trying to be helpful for once. People used to complain that I said "word" too much, so now I have to explain myself.

nahhhhh man.

When I was on my stricker the BB would go out on me all the time. It always felt tight and gross. Not to mention the threads are always ridiculous and if you mess them up it makes life miserable.

A steel frame would do just fine for what he'd use it for most likely.

If you were good enough to break a hi-ten steel frame, you wouldn't even consider a bike with one, is probably what he's getting at. No offense. I probably wouldn't break one, but 400 bucks wasn't too much money for me so I got the bike I have, which has a decent frame.

So what would you say if I could get a warranty that if I broke the frame within 1 year, I could get a custom one built from him. Would it be worth it?

The 2 that say they are custom built were built by him.

Ok, I just got an e-mail from him. He also carries WTP, Eastern, DK(I'm not getting the 6-pack) and Integral. If I ordered tomorrow he could have it in this weekend. Opinions?

I would still honestly go with a Fit. I have many friends that have gotten hooked up with fit flows and they do just fine, and they do things 100 times burlier than you will be doing for the first year.

Get something that will work that is cheap, and slowly replace items as you need to.

I don't know. What is so good about it that everyone recommends it so much?

Edit: Nevermind. I'll search it.
