He's not reading this thread, so you can stop posting now.

In fact, I'd wager that the colors were already decided, and the bikes have been ordered.

It's not going to be for a while, methinks. The regular Kilo TT frames have been pushed until May. The pro frames, according to his quote on page 2 was "5 months". That was back in December when the regular frames were supposed to come in February.

Do all bike makers suffer this fate, or is Bikes Direct particularly inept at predicting demand?

Hmm, well I guess that's a good sign! Not surprising, seeing as how we're headed for $4-per-gallon gas.

Hrm, I am surprised. The US is heading into a recession, the dollar has tanked against all of the asian currencies as well as the Euro, but people are still buying bikes? Seems odd....
