Well, I'm starting to wonder.
In July I paid my deposit after working out most of the details; I asked him for a rough guess on a timeframe (I know that ordering a frame like this is NOT "instant gratification"...but I just wanted a ballpark) and his answer was "It's too hard to estimate right now. I've got to see how my build schedule plays out."
Fair enough. I left well enough alone.
In October I dropped him one brief message asking if he had an idea of a ballpark estimate. No reply.
Now November is wrapping up, so I sent an e-mail and left a phone message. No reply.
I did emphasize that I know he's busy, and I know he can't give me an exact ETIC...I'm not trying to pin him down to an exact date. But the fact that I can't even get a window of time, or even a reply, is worrisome.
Is this normal? Should I start attempting to recover my money now?
If I do, does anyone know anything about Ionic Bikes?
