Please Niner, can we have an update on the carbon fork delivery? The previous to current newsletter said July. Even if the news is bad ie. another two months wait, at least if I know I can get another fork temporarily. Very painful to have the bike sitting here forkless and just not knowing.
Oh and please make sure Australia gets some of the batch.:thumbsup:

It's worth the wait! I love mine.

I do have a Surly fork in my garage w/ about a month's use on it I could sell cheap to someone who is waiting for their Niner carbon. I wasn't going to sell it, but it is collecting dust.

They sometimes say "no news is good news" but I'm not really feeling that this is the case here.
Any chance of an update on the fork delivery times like there has been on the A9C frames below?

We are shipping Air 9 Carbon frames,Med and Large sizes, but delivery is still slow. We are still facing the same production issues we gave in past newsletters. We are getting frames but only a few a week. Sorry this is the best information for now.

Still waiting :( Can't believe I posted this back in July. Australia certainly does get the short end of the stick.
Niner guys , can you please give me an answer.

My LBS said (they were on the phone with Niner rep as I was at the counter) December or January! :eek:

Would be great to hear directly from Niner here.

Try emailing them direct, you might have a better response rate.

Thanks but I've paid a deposit and want to do the right thing by my LBS despite the fact I've been waiting since May. Might try emailing Niner.

I was told that Niner had to go to a new version and that mine will ship out in a couple weeks. If this is true then I don't mind the wait and would prefer the new and improved version. They said they could not say what they changed. IMO that is often why you don't buy first runs...easier said than done. I have had a ti frame break and a scandium frame break only to see the new versions come out with big improvements to the weak areas
