My point is - how difficult it seems to get these things!! Seems strange that this is a mount that everyone is looking for, but cannot get!

It's arrived !!!

Was a bit concerned that it might be a little angular, but once on the bike it looks fantastic. I'm as happy as a pig in sh*t !!!

I'm pleased for you mate.

I just ordered mine from ebay - as a result of seeing how long yours has taken. I'll post back when it arrives.

Ordered it from Sigma. I kept on at them as I ordered it in mid July. Every time I got an email stating a delivery date, and it didn't arrive, I chased them. I got an email on Monday saying that they were expecting to receive a few on Tuesday and would ship mine s soon as it arrived with them.

To be fair, I dont think it's Sigma's fault, they can't ship if they've not received them, and they an only pass on the information that they've been given.

Mine is delayed until '1st October' - but I did order it not as long ago as others. I also have to say that Sigma S have been the best company with regards to keeping myself informed of the status, with the offer to cancel.

There is not much point in cancelling, as looking around all other sites are stating the same!

Just a heads up for anyone wanting to order a design cycles mount, I got mine today and got stung for customs tax on it, which was £12. so a chunk more expensive the k edge mounts.

Not overly impressed with the product itself for the money either to be quite honest, i'm sure it works fine and once its fitted will look ok, but its a weird finish on it, and it was marked before i even took it out the box which doesnt bode well.... :(

never mind, will do for the time being until k edge mounts / garmins own are flooding the market and have been discounted a bit.
