I've read some war stories of how long it takes to receive a bike that has been ordered. Granted, it would take a good wait for a custom-built bike. But would it take over a month, to order a stock bike from a bike manufacturer, if the bike you want (or need fitted to) is not carried by your LBS?
I would like to order my bike (50 cm) directly from Trek, and to request a Project One paint job. I'm not Irish, but I've put away some beers on St Patrick's day in a former life, and a green bike would be cool.
I can see a bit of a wait, to order a stock bike directly from the Trek Mfr ... in order to get the Project One paint job. I can see a longer wait, to get in line for a Project One paint job.
Any war stories from the group, on how long of a wait I might have, if:
* I order a stock bike from Trek, and sent to my LBS?
* I order a stock bike from Trek ... get a Project One paint job ... and sent to my LBS?
