I ordered a Dean 29er yesterday. My delivery date is scheduled for May 27th (6 weeks). I'm excited as hell to be into one of these bikes but given Dean's reputation, I thought I'd offer a pool. If you pick the date to the exact day it arrives on my door, I'll pony up a Maxis Ignitor tire- new in the package. Let's see those dates- (My picked date is May 27th because I have faith.) I'm doing this pool to distract myself from the anticipation of getting my bike...Weigh in....

July 14th

I'm in, put me down for July 14th. Sorry. I ordered mine on January 10th, got it April 13th. I've taken a few pics, I'll post them up in the next few days. Still waiting on some parts from Thomas at Rohloff, so it may be a while. The worst thing is my lack of patience led me to go ahead and start cannibalizing my Buzzbomb to start the build, so now all I have to ride is a road bike.

Dude you are crazy. I ordered a 29er from them before, had to cancel after they lied to me 20 times in a row. I have a colonel 26" singlespeed which is a nice bike, but i'd never buy another from them strictly based on the lack of honesty from them. whenever i called them(after the 4-5 week promise time had passed) they would tell me 1 more week. i pleaded with them for an honest estimate of time after many weeks of no new frame in the mail. eventually, it made it to q.c., several weeks of qc later i cancelled my order. i really don't think they ever started on it. they are just so full of shi t its unbelievable. they just refuse honesty. they seem pleasant enough on the phone, but cannot deliver. i took all the stickers off my 26" just to avoid advertising there brand. whenever anyone asks about my 26" i tell them its a sweet bike but a terrible company. they really don't deserve your money.
that being said-i predict august 9th as the day you get the bike. although they will probably have it in qc 6 weeks before that. shipping will only take 3-4 weeks. they may lose the tracking number and have computer problems also. they'll offer to call you back and never do so. they really suck to deal with. i am drawn to jeff jones bikes because his 1-2 year waiting list sounds realistic. good luck.

I'm sure it will be worth the wait. But I'll go with June 13th.

August 5

I'm guessing Aug 5, no experience with a custom build, but good luck getting it sooner, rather than later.
