Well, that's good news! I ordered mine on 10/5 and was quoted 6-8 weeks. I'm getting an off the rack size with no alterations, so maybe mine will come early as well.

This... The Plexifaring GT works great, except it is a little noisy. I'm 6'1", and i think that if it were a few inches taller it may improve things a little.
