Only a five month wait for your frame!!!
Yep, Anytime anyone brings up Dean, you can bet someone will be quick to point out the delays. Donkey and a few others had big problems. I had a minor problem which was corrected, but I would deal with them again.

I am not sure that anything new is up, but I know that they will do the Duke and Ace in 29er variations. I am not sure about the Baja. I think you can get them in the Carbon wrapped tubes too. This maybe drops about 1/4 to 1/2 lbs off of the frame weight I think.

They are re-doing their stem.

They have a new modular dropout that is singlespeed and disc compatible.

They have a ti MTB fork that is not on the website that I have ordered.

Is the ti mtb fork rigid ? their new site says they have a ace xlite cti new for 2006 but it gives no info.

i believe the Ace Xlite cti and modular dropouts came out since 05. New things i've seen from their web seems to be a new road frame (Ayre), S&S coupling option, new logo options (and a price hike on their cycling wear..lol.). I think they have a a different-shaped head tube from now on..

also, their new front page shows some pretty sweet welding on their frames!

Hi, anyone know if DEAN will be doing anytzhing new for 2006? They are always a bit slack when it comes to updating their website !
When I ordered my custom Ace, John told me they raised the BB from 12.5 to 12.75. I'm not sure if they've changed it on the web or not yet as I haven't looked recently.
