Does any one know when the Cannondale Team Replica will be delivered?
I live in Canada and ordered my R6000 in November 2002 and I still have not got my bike!
My LBS calls Cannondale on a weekly bases and they cannot confirm a date for delivery.
If it takes much longer the 2004 models will be out.
Thanks to all who know what's going on.

I just received an R2000 that I ordered Monday of this week. But I was in the same place as you waiting for a Scalpel 3000, although, knowing the situation that C'dale had been in, I knew there would be long delays for some models and wouldn't put money down on it. At this point I'm waiting for the '04's to come out.

If I were you, I would do two things. 1) Talk to C'dale directly and demand an answer as to whether they have one in the warehouse or at the factory in Bedford. 2) Put pressure on your LBS and C'dale customer service for one of the first '04's (and to honor the '03 price. It's their fault that they had these problems. They should be happy that customers like you and I don't drop them and head to the first competitor that is able to deliver).

Good luck.

I was in the same boat as you when i had long wait for both my R5000 & Scalpel 3000. The anodized & ball burnished frames aren't done in house so there is always a longer delivery time for these especially when they are in such high demand. I'd be patient that R6000 is going to be worth the wait.
