Waiting for new frame is driving me nuts(5 posts)

Waiting for new frame is driving me nutsHBPat

Sold my last bike and used the money to buy a new frame. They said it would take about three weeks to cut the tubes and paint it. I though I could last three short weeks but I am not doing well.

My idea to substitute a healthy dose of RBR discussions is not helping either. I am considering taking my Frankenbike (currently used only for kwik-e-mart runs) for a long one tomorrow. But pushing it back when the chain breaks will be even more of a devestating blow.

Sorry, just venting.

Snapped the swingarm on my C'dale Jekyll and have been "enjoying" the typical run around from those folks. They tell the shop that they shipped it, but I know better so I ask for a tracking number. Oppps, we're going to ship it today, honest. Yeah, right.

I am also suffering from this pain. I ordered my new Steelman almost 2 weeks ago. He said about 2-3 weeks, and that I should hear from him in about 1.5 weeks or so. I haven't heard anything, so it hasn't shipped yet. It's not late or anything....I just cannot stand the waiting. It's driving me crazy. Luckily, I decided to wait to sell my other bike until it arrives, but I'm still experiencing extreme anxiety. I even ate TWO packages of Reese's Peanut Butter Cups (that's 500 calories worth of candy). I feel horribly guilty about it (as I'm trying to get into prime shape), but I was in such despair that my bike hadn't arrived yet. (At least, that's my excuse!) Hang in there....hopefully it will arrive soon. :)

Well worth the wait. I've had my 853 steelman stage race frame for a year . It's a great frame. Enjoy...
