Does anyone know what the current status, as far as being able to order a Nagasawa frameset? I saw the recent blurb on the Yellow Jersey's site, which seems to indicate that all bets are off on being able to order a Nagasawa frame - you just have to wait to see if a frame eventually becomes available in your size and you have no choice regarding colors. Jeez, they also say that some orders from two years ago are still not filled!!?? I realise that Euro-Asia was importing these frames from Japan, so is the difficulty with availability something to do with Euro-Asia? Or is Nagasawa discouraging orders? Maybe he's just backordered? Was there any current info from E-A at the recent Interbike show? If anyone has any info, I would appreciate hearing from you.
