bikesdirect.com restock?

Does anyone know how often then restock? I'm trying to buy a mercier kilo tt, but they dont have it in my size. I don't know any other place to get the full bike (as opposed to the frame alone). Is it worth waiting, or should I just get a different bike?

If you ask them, the will quote you something like 4-6 weeks.

In my experience, it took them longer than that.

What a great question to ask Bikesdirect!

If you say so.

Why would you post here instead of contacting Bikes Direct? What are we going to know that the company itself isn't going to be able to tell you?

Asking us when BD will restock Kilos is like me asking, "My favorite diner down the street is closed for renovations. Do you know when they'll be done so I can go get huevos rancheros?"

Well if you took the time to read first reply (the only helpful one), you'd have seen that in yummygooey's experience, bikesdirect's estimate was inaccurate. But also, in my experience, contacting online companies can be a hassle and I usually get better info from real people. Anyway, question is answered so /thread

p.s. your analogy is weak. you would actually have to be asking Huevos rancheros enthusiasts who are familiar with the diner down the street. in which case, there's a good chance you'd get a decent answer (like I did in here).

Contacting online companies is a "hassle"? Only if you're too lazy to send an e-mail and too impatient to wait for a response.

Whatever, brah. I'm going to keep this thread alive just so we can talk more about food and less about Kilo TTs.

Dude, seriously. Mariachi bands rule. There's a Mexican place here in town that has a live mariachi band sometimes and they always play "Angie" by the Rolling Stones in Spanish whenever Angie and I are there when they are (because I once asked them to on her birthday).

It's also been covered numerous times in previous threads, but whatever. I was feeling nice.
