The original due date for the SF Elite HT's to the Trek dealer I go to was mid October...then it was pushed back to mid November...then it was pushed back to mid December. If I didn't know any better, I'd say that they must have had problems with early production runs of those frames and so they've been re-tooling or re-working something on the frames. Anyone else waiting on one? Has anyone actually gotten one yet (besides the few the team have been riding)??

Don"t know, but i would hazard a guess the frame is not the issue this time - several of the "non-elites" are in riders' hands now, and I believe the frame is the same.

Don't know about HTs - the SF100s not speced as Elite are in the shops now. I rode my 2010 SF100 with two of them last week.

Sorry - misread your post!

Yes...the SF100s are shipping....got friends riding them already....that's a given. It is specifically the Hard Tails that I am asking about. I was hoping someone (maybe even someone with insider info from Trek) on this board would have some insight as to why the SF HARD TAILS have not shipped yet.

Hopefully you will get the superfly that early. I work at a local trek bike store. We are hearing from rep., early next year. I did get mine earlier than expected. Maybe you will to.

I test rode the hardtail last weekend and I was very disappointed. The bike was light, but not enough lighter than a Paragon to justify the extra cost. My favorite thing about the bike was the new handlebar and stem, they're black and the graphics are barely visible, very cool!

You already got a SF Hard Tail Elite? My local Trek dealer said a 15" was available to him last week but I am waiting on a 19"...the due date is end of the month now....you seeing the same on Dexter? What size SF HT Elite did you get? Post photos!

problems with headtube

I've had 23" size frame on order since july. what my dealer told me last week was that, for at least the 23" bikes, since they've never done that size before, they are having trouble with the strength and integrity of the head-tube, and they are going back and re-engineering that section to make it strong enough for the 23" bikes.

Just received a phone call today that my 17.5" superfly elite had arrived!
To be honest i was not expecting it so soon,from what I had been hearing about estimated arrival dates.Especially in Europe(Greece)
I will keep you posted for my impressions.

Is this your first SF? I already have an '09 HT and a '10 100 so I already know how friggen awesome these bikes are. At first I was not real keen on the new colors but after seeing the new 100s in the matte paint, and seeing how they re-worked the head-tube to be e2, corrected the angles for the 100mm fork, and added the bb90...I got excited and decided to get a new HT.

...be sure to post photos of yours as soon as you have it!

Yes It is my first one.Actually this is my first 29er! overall
I think the new colors are no match to uncle Garrys graphics,but final on that, after I see the new one.
The corrections and upgrades you say above had solved older issues and for sure we are talking about a better bike.
You had me thinking though,after having the fs now you are going for the hardtail?Could you tell me more about this decision.
Photos Friday first thing.

I already have both...just looking to upgrade the HT.

See...it's like this: I hate having to pick one or the other...so that's why I own both. that way I can ride whichever strikes my fancy at the moment. :D
