I wouldn't wait three weeks for delivery of a new bike, let alone three months, or ten like some of you. General availability and reasonable delivery times are basic expectations when buying a bike at these prices. My money would have been returned, willingly or not, and spent elsewhere long ago.
Yeah- you wouldnt wait three weeks for delivery of a new bike at these prices($3700 for the Renegade Elite and $3400-4400 for the Warroad and $2000 for the Warroad frameset). Oh- wait.
