I guess you wanted an 07?

I looked in the dealer on line warehouse and there are no 07 Free's There are 06 Free"s in ANO Orange in Large if you are not stuck on the 1.5 head tube. Swing arms are also in there. This was as 02/02/7.

I remember reading also that they were not taking any more order for 07 Free's due to production problems.

Now that explains a few things.

Should I be hung up about the 1.5" ? I was gonna run Fox 40rc2. I'm mainly DH no racing and not much FR apart from a bit of rock hopping. Hmm ? Any thoughts ?

:madman: :madmax:

Thanks for that news Texheckler.

I wouldn't be worried about needing a 1.5" HT, especially for the riding you're doing.
LBS spoken to SC this week, SC say is def a 1.5" and is coming soon poss 3 weeks delivery.

I dunno, opinions like asholes, every one has one :confused: :madman:

My past experience....3 wks = 2-3 months in SC time.

Sorry SC but yall build frames a lot better than you process orders.

I just picked my VP free frame up last Sat. Took 1 week from order to delivery.
I wanted 1.5 but was told the same thing...no more 1.5's due to suspended production. No big deal though, I'll be running 888's anyway.

My frame does not have the ISCG tabs either. So it definitely is not what you would consider an 07.

It is SWEET looking though. Can't wait to build it up.

Oh yeah...I was told they had polished, powder coat orange, powder coat gang green, ano slate...that's it.

None were 1.5.

Well this shows that FreerideB and Texheckler were bang on the money. :nono:

No more 1.5" being made, production issues, blah de blah, seems more to be a marketing/demand thing with SC and the big bikes.

So she's on her way north as I type, 1.&1/8" ano-orange-large. :p & I'm ready to shred like a mofo :madmax:
