First off let me say hello all! This is my first time posting here, and having preorded a fatty from BD over a month ago I find this thread to be of great interest. I had initially ordered a Boris the Brut. Like many others I got the disappointing email saying the shipment has been delayed. Soooo....when BD posted the 2 red Sturgis Bullets available now I jumped on it and changed my order. The operator I spoke with was very helpful and assured me the Sturgis would ship this Monday. I had never thought of the scenario watermonkey brought up and I can understand how that would be annoying to someone who ordered months ago. I wonder what their plan is? Not to step on anyone's toes, but I really hope the bike is truly available and ships on Monday like I was told. It will be interesting to see how this goes.Sooooooo, BD posted yesterday that they have 2, 19" metal flake red Sturgis Bullets, ready to ship right now. Now I wonder, is there anyone on here that has already paid BD for a 19" Sturgis Bullet in metal flake red, awaiting the Jan 30th-Feb 16th ship date? If so, wouldn't you think that they would just ship these 2, 19" bikes to the first people in que that ordered this exact bike, instead of selling them early to an additional customer, and then making people that already have sent money to BD months ago wait longer? Maybe I'm missing something, but if I wasn't waiting on a yellow one, and had pre-purchased a red one, my panties would be mega bunched right now.
Anyone know when the frame with bluto forks are shipping out? I can't find it anywhere on their facebook page but their site says shipping now.
hehe its alway's something huh. It was like that with the first batch of night trains and night train bullets. Im mad because I sold the frame of my fatty and its blizzarding today. I guess I can't stress it. THe snow will be on the trails for a long time if the weather stays down.I preordered mine on 1/11 (21, metal flake green) and got an email saying it would ship 1/23 and I got a ups tracking number. I got tan email on 1/22 saying due to a port strike on the west coast, my frame was going to be delayed a week. So who knows when it will actually ship, I'm a little disappointed but as long as it shows up with a good deraileur hanger I'll be happy.
Confirmed it, My bro in law told me he is living this nightmare of the Port "strike", its not actually official but the workers are doing an organized slow down to show their worth. They are asking for more money, guaranteed overtime pay, etc. Surprisingly they make good money too. He was telling me something that would take 1 hour they take 7 hours to unload. So who knows when we may get our bikes.I got tan email on 1/22 saying due to a port strike on the west coast
I didn't actually buy them but it did accept the discount down to $110, free shipping also. The coupons I found are 15% off a single item so you'd need to order the Bud and Lou seperate I guess. It's still a lot of money for tires, not sure if anything will give me what I'm looking for on snow covered rocky rooty PA singletrack.I recalled trying that but not sure surly qualifies for this discount.
I'll have to try that again. I have a bunch of those coupons. You know anyone who tried it on singletrack without snow? Worried of the rolling resistance and fast tire wear.I didn't actually buy them but it did accept the discount down to $110, free shipping also.

I wish! The studded version goes for $190 retail.$130 at Jenson plus there's 15% coupon codes floating around. Do the Snowshoe XL come with studs for $100?
Bud and Lou would be a winter tire only for me, the Snowshoes are fine for dry riding. I was hoping the Schwalbe Jumbo Jim would be out sooner, their 4.8 is going to be significantly lighter than other tires that size.I'll have to try that again. I have a bunch of those coupons.
