That's a tease! I assume you bought the complete bike since you've discussed the carbon wheels and the Reba Brain.

PS. my DT 36 star came in the mail. I hope it works in the Specy hub. Thanks for the tip

I saw one in a local shop several weeks ago, and they already had a second. The wheels are astoundingly light.

It appears that the whole bikes will be released prior to the framesets. Again, knowing that their are a few out there keeps my optimism high.

Honestly, I was a bit surprised to hear it showed up as the last word I got was END of November. I really think Specialized is trying to under promise and over deliver on delivery times this year.

I'll get over there this afternoon, I promise. :D ;)

Let's hope youre right. I just picked my s-works carbon crankset on Monday. Just waiting for the spiders to come available then I'll have the build all prepared. I already have a Stans Crest laced to an AC from hub. Probably will go with the Crest in the rear as well. The bike is going to be ridiculous.

What bike(s) are you coming from? Very curious to hear a ride report. I put 20 miles or so on a demo Carbon Comp yesterday (no S-Works demo bike, sadly), and very interested in what folks are experiencing with the new fork, XX group, etc.

Gone- I cant wait to see the "out of the box weight". I know you guys showed me the bikerumor site that showed the 21.14lb and the 23.5lb weights for a Medium. Did you get a Medium? Where did it come in that 2+lb spectrum? I know the 23.5lb quote included tubes/cage. I'm sure the bike comes out of the box with tubes, so not likely at the 21.14lb quote out of the box.

Keep us posted on this. My non S-Works Epic 29er frame will be here in mid-December, although its a Christmas gift so I won't get it until then. Still, I'm used to King hubs, so I'm definitely looking to at least get to 36 tooth engagement.
