My new bike is on backorder until late August. I have a sneaking hunch it will take even longer, though.
I toyed w/the idea of getting a specialized Ruby, which was immediately available. It's an equally awesome bike, actually comes spec'd better than the one I'm getting.
But then I remembered how much I loved the feel of the Serotta steel frame and my better angels told me that good things are worth waiting for.
So, no instant gratification for Mom, but I know it will be all that much sweeter when I finally get my new ride home.
