Here are some other options:

Test a KHS Flite 100 (you should know by now its the same frame) at a LBS or from a friend. Or since you're in Texas go check out CycleSpectrum, they're the same guys as BikesDirect except in store form. They've got a few locations in Texas, heres the site:

For those of you who ordered on the 16th, did anyone get theirs yet? Does it come with a Dura Ace cog?

Mine is shipping today too... I hope everyone enjoys their new bikes.

I ordered the 53 Black

Note to all thinking about buying one: Seems that a dealer on ebay has a fresh lot to send out (with dura ace cog), just look on bestbikebargains.com for the link.

i'm super jealous. BD sent me three emails Monday saying my bike was shipped out and even gave me a tracking code. It was supposed to be delivered today but when I woke up the delivery was rescheduled to next week and wasnt even picked up by UPS until late last night? Is that normal operating procedure for them or did I fall in the cracks?
