I ordered my Extreme C on 10th October 2005 and was told to expect delivery early January. I've just been told that delivery will probably be end March/beginning of April. 6 months??!! Worth the wait of course, but surely not acceptable in this day and age!

My C50 took 2 months

I ordered my C50 HP HM on Nov 22, 2005 from Mike Perry (Maestro) who deals directly with the factory. Mike received it on Jan 31, 2006. So it took about 2 months (excluding factory shutdown over X'mas). I should be receiving it today via UPS.

May be Extreme-C takes longer?
Whom did your order yours from?

I ordered mine from my local bike shop (i.e. from UK official distributor). Maybe Extreme C's do take longer. I'm not sure how Mike can get stock direct from the Colnago factory, because they have an official UK distributor. Maybe he gets them through another 'source'?

He pick them up

Mike picks them up at the factory by himself.
But even that doesn't guarantee speedy delivery. If they don't have a specific size from ATR, it can take a few months before they get it to paint.

I ordered a 54sloping C50-HM in EITA from Mike at Maestro on Nov. 18. I received it on Feb. 2. Not sure if Ex-C takes longer. BTW, I paid 168.00 duty to take delivery, also included a record bb and a colnago headset. Always worth the wait.
