When I read your OP I wondered if this was re Triton.
Four years ago I was looking to buy a Surly Troll frameset, in black size large. The Triton web site indicated that they had said item in stock. I rang them before ordering (on line) to confirm that they actually had this frameset in stock. I was told that it was definitely in stock ready to go and that I should order it on line, which I did.
Twenty minutes later I got an email saying that the framset wasn't in stock and that it would have to be ordered in. I rang back an asked them to explain why I had been told it WAS in stock. I was told that they did have one in stock but that it was earmarked for another customer and that the person that I had spoken to earlier was not aware of this !!
Conclusion (for me at least)....Avoid.
