Olive LHT availability

I was wondering if anyone knows when QBP will be able to ship the new green LHT frame or complete bike. I believe they only have 52 cm completes in stock right now.

Thanks,
Andrew

My LBH can't get my Olive LHT frameset from QBP until mid April. He called them twice and that's the time frame they gave him.

Jenson is showing them in stock

Jenson has the Olive LHT completes listed on their website in all sizes. $85 more than the blue ones.

...and Bikeman has the framesets listed for $70 less than the blues... WTF ? (Note: Not yet in Stock)

The world has gone mad.

To protest I picked up 2 (two) sweet, pristine, 40 spoke-wheeled, triple-butted Miyata Valley Runners tonight for $150/set.

Buahahahaha !!!

I just sold the Utility Blue that was mis-sized for me and am now waiting for the Olive in my size which will be available to my LBS via QBP mid April.

As for the big internet dealers, I would encourage you to support your LBS.

The big internet dealers can afford to undercut your LBS because they sell in bulk, and all so you can save an extra $25 or $50 off the price. If you support your local bike shop it'll support you when you need it. Whatever you put into your local economy, it will put back into you. It would also be a major hassle to deal with a company long distance to fix something, and in the end you would have paid the same price if not more for the repair/adjustment/shipping/etc. Lastly, most LBSs will give you a free tuneup (worth about $40) which would have paid the difference from the big box guys in the first place but on a more personal level.

Just something to consider before you buy from the cheap guys.

Because the Olive bikes are this model year, vs the Blue, which are last year's model. This really is just a reflection of the declining dollar, so the new Olive bikes are costing more, as will any new Blue LHT that come over this year.
