How are cycling supplies in various parts of the world? I am in the UK and as a retirement present to myself I ordered a hand-made Italian frame that I had always wanted, and, nine months later I am still waiting! So, I thought that I would order from a UK builder, but they tell me that the waiting time is ......9 months! So will I get my frame before I depart this life? Will I get it while I am still able to throw a leg over my saddle?
