Cannondale Road Tandem Delivery
On 8/1, I ordered a M/S Cannondale road tandem in blue fade colors. Obviously, can't wait to get it. MY LBS guy ordered it immediatly as I stood next to him and the rep at Cannondale told him it would ship in 3 weeks, but if I wanted a platinum colored one, it could be sooner, only 2 weeks. I was surprised to hear that I could get it so soon. I know in the past that the Cannondale delivery promises have not been too accurate. Can anyone tell me if they have had a recent experience ordering one of these bikes, and if Cannondale met their delivery promise? Another shop in our area has been waiting for a "stock" order of Cannondale tandems for a couple months, but the guy at my LBS told me that Cannondale gives priority to specific customer orders, and they get shipped first. My wife and I plan to ride this bike in the Lance Armstrong Century in early October in Moab, and would like to have a month or so to become accustomed to it. Your thoughts, please...
