Having a frame custom made isn't the same as purchasing a mass produced bike.

It was a joke. I completely get the difference between a custom frame and a mass produced bike/frame. I wasnt at all seriously calling you inconsistent or anything like that. It was simply funny to me that you declared you would never wait 3 weeks when you did wait over 3 weeks.
Again, i get why you waited and it makes total sense. I also get that you were speaking to something besides custom.
It was simply a funny comment to read so I responded in my own funny way(that clearly was lost). Not everything needs to be a serious game of 'gotcha'.

Its a sweet bike, pretty sure its one of the last with S3 since i dont think they use that tubing anymore(according to something of theirs that i read a few months ago) and all that makes it really neat. Take most of what I say with a grain or two of salt.
