Remember you are likely to get stung for duty and VAT on anything you import from the US. That can add up to a hefty amount. Then you wait a lot longer for your order to reach you. Plus if anything goes wrong it is MUCH more desirable to be dealing with a local company than having to send stuff back to the US.

In skating, the dealers are always saying: "coming soon". It's meaningless, useless & ineffective marketing. So if they want to wait to announce, that's good. Even better to wait until it's actually in stock.

Like the local tire store sign proudly states: If it's in stock, we got it!!!

It's so top secret I'm sure you'll all want one. I've already told Roger to send one to UDC NZ for me to buy as soon as it's ready

Maybe the new coker will come with a 40" tyre as an option.

I'm sure it'll be something just for the most skilled (and suicidal) riders in the world - a 36" two-wheeler!

Eccentric 36" two-wheeler. One crank of 190mm, and the other at 90mm. Yeah...

If Ken is getting one, I hope that means that it will be extremely (or at least more) light

An effect of this notice is that fence-sitters - sitting there because of promises of good goods to come - keep sitting (keep the $ in the pocket). I, for one, hope that this 'new' thing will be relevant, if I choose to wait for it.

Did you count in the VAT (US prices don't include VAT, which is 17.5%, and goes onto the total cost of the item including shipping) and import duty (something between 5% and 10% depending on what it gets imported as).

Typically adds about 20% to the cost you end up paying, plus about £12 for the charge that the post office make for holding the item until you pay import duty. If you haven't counted that, then it'd cost about £325 in total.

If Ken's buying it, then I'm probably buying it too.

My guess is a drilled airfoil style rim.

Well, where will you get your 1.21 gigawatts from? Soreen? (actually, that might work if you squash it dense enough so you can fit more in)
