Anyone have any intel US availability for XT m8100 stuff? Jenson has been given the run around, started July 1st, then it was next week then its early August. WWC said they're hoping for Sept/ Oct. but nothing concrete...it's starting to look like another XTR release.

I have effectively the entire group set on backorder through jenson. You’re right in that the dates keep creeping back. I just looked and the few items I checked are showing 7/21 (most recently I saw 7/19). Did they tell you August?

Ya I have most the drivetrain on back order...last week they told me early this week...yesterday they said "hopefully" early August, every time I've asked its been a different answer. WWC and Competitive Cyclist both said Shimano is being very vague with dates but said probably not till Sept/ Oct, maybe.

That’s a bummer as they outright said, at the time of launch, that XT & SLX wouldn’t have the same delays that XTR did.

Oddly, jenson isn’t shipping my dt swiss freehub that is showing as in stock. Odds are that when the m8100 stuff does show, these freehubs will be out of stock.

Seems that jenson keeps pushing the availability date out to be 5 days from the current date. Yesterday the date was 7/22, today they’re showing 7/23

Finding companies from overseas to sell shimano is getting harder and harder. Prob best not to mention it here.

Otherwise plenty of Shimano on eBay getting shipped from China for reasonable prices.

I am pissed that DT Swiss is also cracking down on shipping hubs for Europe to the US as well. I have grown used to paying low-$200 range for DT 240s. No way in hell will I pay $400+ here.

Ouch!!!

I just picked up a new pair of DT Swiss XM1501 Spline 29 Wheels with DT 240s for 700 off Pinkbike. New.

Replacing entire NX drivetrain on my rig for XT 8100 and likely getting them from Europe too.

My m8100 drivetrain components arrived from jenson last week. I finally got around to installing it all last night. First ride this morning. Everything works great.

I should note that I’m running the m8130 superboost crankset. This kit comes with a longer spindle and a pair of spacers for each side of the BB shell. The ND crank arm is marked as a standard m8100 unit.

I’m using the WT adapter to run the 12sp shift pod with my m9020 brakes. This was a painless setup.

Jenson have been showing an 8/13 arrival date for the m8120 brakes for some time now, so there’s hope that those of us who ordered through jenson will see them soon.

Now I’m waiting for RF to offer a micro spline freehub for their vault hubs.

Same here. One brake set did ship out today. The other (front) has an estimated in-stock date of 8/13.
