Back in October, I ordered a Nashbar touring frame. At the time I ordered, the frame was out of stock with a mid-November estimated delivery date. I called today to verify my order status, and Nashbar claims that their new availability date is 12/27!!!
How likely is Nashbar to actually deliver my frame this year? Should I just cancel the order and buy another frame? What other frames can I get in the $200 range for touring? I **really** don't want to get into having to strip/paint a used frame.
I also want a frame with cantilever/V-brake mounts on the fork and seat stays, as I've already bought the brakes I intend to mount. 700c wheels are also a necessity as I've already got them.
