    Is the Madison gone?

    A friend of mine is looking to buy a Schwinn Madison, but the stores he has gone to have told him they cannot get them. Is this true everywhere? Is there a shortage? Are they backed up for months on orders?
    Any clarification would be greatly appreciated.

    There is a large on ebay and the auction says Schwinn didn't anticipate the demand.

    They sold out of the 2007 much faster than they anticipated they would...there will be no more 2007 models made and so if a shop doesn't have one they wont be able to get one. Now my question is why the hell is Schwinn changing the color for 2008? I heard it is going to be blue or something like that...that white with red acents looks great.

    Indeed. I went looking and my lbs told me they sold out their year's alottment for 2007 way back in November of '06!
    --Supreme Court Justice Steven Breyer, whose brother is a district judge, once observed that, "The role of a district judge is to decide quickly, wisely, and fairly. This is not to say that the role of an appellate judge is to decide slowly, foolishly, and unfairly, for that would usurp the function of the Supreme Court."
