What size are you looking for? Where are you located? I can get your hands on a Large I have in stock if you are local. Get it all built up before March.

Is this a sign? Time is making me Question my decision!

I wouldn't complain had I not been given the date dec. Plus the fact that I start my racing series in march. That wont give me any time to make sure that its dialed in plus getting the right fit and stem that I will order as soon as I'm sure it good fit. I'm going to use the ec90 easton stem. Carbon all the way. I've waited 3years to buy my race bike. I've not had good luck with full suspension bikes. I've gone back to hard tails and now this makes me wonder if I should pull out. Stick to the hard tails...:confused:

Not yet. Wheels are being built by No Tubes as we speak. Actually going out of town on Thursday so I won't see them until late next week. We have 12" of snow on the ground so I won't be able to give my impressions until the spring. With it being significantly stiffer and lighter than my 2010 Epic Marathon 29er I'm assuming I'll love it.

I passed on the # you gave me to the shop here. He should be contacting your shop to see if they can make a deal. Good luck. I just got the '11S-works 29er back around Christmas and finally got to ride it yesterday for the first time. I broke my collarbone on Dec.12, had surgery the 19th, and have been letting it heal ever since. If all goes well, I should get full release next wed.... 4 days before our first race of the Texas Championship Series. The bike rides amazing from what I could get out of it. My legs and lungs are a bit behind after the long recovery. I plan on sneaking in a few more rides before racing on the 27th. Let me know how things go with the frame.

I went to shop today to see whats up with the couple of parts I've been waiting for. I went back into the room and there it was built up, except for the rear brake hanging and the from derailer waiting on the post mounts for the 160 rotor and xx front derailer. Its 70 degrees in NC today I'm dying not being able to throw my leg over it and go!
Just one more week and the wait is over. It looks awsome if it rides half as good as it looks. I will almost be in heaven. I did demo the marathon thats why I chose this bike. It felt like the best 29er I ridden and I've ridden alot. I can't wait to post the pictures, weight and build!!!!

Glad to hear your wait is almost over. You'll love the ride. Hoping to get down your way for a few days over spring break to thoroughly test out my new epic.
The xx S3 bottom pull derailleurs have been hard to come by. I need one as well. QBP has been out of them for a couple months and just got a few in stock yesterday and are out of stock again today.

Yes that's what my shop told me they recieved the email with only 3 left. They put the order in and there where none left. Thank god. I would have gone postal over it because I told them to order it over a month a go. Its funny how they make things before parts are even made....
I cant wait but right now I'm a little under the weather anyways. If you ever want to ride in the piscah, NC just let me know I have a extra room. I will be racing the SERC series this year. I did race in the world cup in NY last year that was awsome to be able to witness our own willow home girl win second place in the world.:thumbsup:
