Updating in case anyone else is looking for a Pannie 35 this season:
Well, I decided to order it, but Sears won't let you order something if it's temporarily out of stock. So they take your e-mail address and will send a notice when it's back in stock. In the meantime however the "price is subject to change". Aaargh.
I think I'll still keep my eye out for a good price on it from somewhere else. I'm also planning on getting the 3808 from 6ave., though I haven't received final approval on that yet from the CFO.
