Went to my LBS two weeks ago and had him call Comotion for an update on my tandem building.. He got a very nice lady on the other end and she said "well looks like the frame has been built...but it hasn't been scheduled for paint...looks like it will go to paint next week and be shipped by the first week in september"....I was very happy to hear this. But yesterday (sept 8th) with no arrival of my tandem I had him call co-motion again and he got a the same lady she said "well it looks like the frame has been built ...but it hasn't been scheduled for paint... It looks like it will go to paint next week and ship thereafter. I am the first co-motion that my lbs has ever ordered..he is using me to get a dealership. He has been in the businiess for over 20 years and he says that the lady's cookie cutter responses were ominous of a parts shortage. I am starting to get worried about this whole deal. I am not really ordering a custom tandem. Just custom paint and a long stoker stem. Anyone else have to wait beyond the 6-8 weeks?
