That would be very welcome news if the RPL became available with the Kashima coat, but Fox tends to treat that one like the red-headed stepchild of the family.

Yes, I just placed my order yesterday. I was going to buy am asr 5c but the features on the sl-r were just too awesome to pass up.

The RPL won't come with the Kashima, since it part of their Performance family. The Factory RP23 w/ Adaptive Logic, RP2 Remote, DHX Air 5.0 and DHX RC4 gets the coating.

Have ordered my large orange and will get the Cane Creek Angleset to go with it, but that's the total planned build. It's going to sit on the wall of the garage till my Mojo Carbon dies. It is 3 1/2 years into it's happy life, about 11000km on the clock and is loving life.

So why order something you don't need or want to sell-on? Aussie dollar is strong and US is weak; simple economics. It may seem very odd when the SL-R is the 4th 140mm Ibis in 5 years, but I think this is going to be a keeper frame. No matter what happens to components in the next 2-3 years, the SL-R will remain perfect for where I live, for what I ride now and will want to ride in the future.

$1.20 by June - please please polease.....
