Anyone got an idea of when it's actually released to market? Not seen any for sale on web sites yet....but (got2ryd) seems to have seen a 2007 stumpy in a shop??
I've seen various posts about July/August, but some still reckon September.
Local shop had the same one yesterday. One of the other customers said it was $1600 but I didn't get to talk to the owner because I was on my way out. It is a sweet looking bike with great components. I had a hard time believing it was only $1600. I initially thought it was an '06 carbon frame because of the curves.
It was next to an '06 and looked sooo much better. I'm going to try and go back today and get the detail.
I did some more research and the travel for the comp remains at 120 mm. So, the biggest changes to the 07 stump fsr comp are the M5 frame, re-shaped downtube and the assymetric chainstays. Can't wait to see the higher end models.
The bikes are definitely out as I picked up my '07 Comp today. According to my LBS (The Bicycle Chain in Raleigh), there was an initial release and it could be up to a month or so until more are available. They put their order in the first day they were available so they got a couple (all sold) in the first shipment.
It's my first FS bike so I'm probably not the best critic, but I can't begin to tell you how much I love this bike!
Filapoosis - you lucky guy! I'm soooo eager to get my hands on the new stumpy too. I spoke to another shop today in uk, he reckons deliveries are coming in about 3 weeks.....I have an order in and can't wait.
we got one in at my shop for an employee, the differences i noticed between his 07 comp and my 06 comp are
the 07 is heavier (about the weight of pedals)
8" front rotor
rerouted rear brake line
frame color, and it seems painted where i believe the 05 is powdercoated (no chipping)
shifters are SRAM, and rapid-rise rear derailleur
brake levers were silver, but still juicy5
rear shock had better clicks between PP and open, but no switch for different levels of PP
m5 alloy instead of m4, thinner forged piece around rear shock
nice bronze parts where 06 are black
I picked mine up on thursday but I have'nt gotten a chance to trail test it yet. They day I picked it up was one of the hotteset days of the summer so far(about 114-115) so needless to say I'm about to go insane until I ride it. I can't do evening rides cuz its still burning, and I have stuff to do in the mornings so maybe tommorow or monday.
But the thing is sweet, but mainly cosmetic updates. Much like Fillapoosis, it is my first FS bike so I am quite excited.
