Damn, bad news that turned into good news again. So on Tuesday there were two of the bikes in my size at the distribution center. I faxed in my oreder form yesterday, after they were closed, and called first thing this morning to make sure they got it. The bikes were already gone!! So, he told me he didnt know how much longer it would be because other shops in the area ordered some and it could be a month or more. I was pretty bummed. Started looking at other bikes in the Giant line and decided I didnt want any of the other hardtails. So I searched BikesDirect again and found nothing I really wanted to spend money on. Then I came to the conclusion I could get the XTC from the California warehouse, so I called him back and luckily got it from there. Had to pay $65 for shipping instead of twenty, but its better than having to wait a month or more. So, hopefully by this time next week I will get my present to myself and then go ride it.

Do you work for a bike shop or something? I didn't know you could order Giant bikes directly from a distributor.

Yes indeed, part time at least. I am working my ass off for this bike, 62 hours+ a week. Today I ordered XT shifters and XT Shadow rear derailuer. Next is shoes and a helmet.
