    My LBS is a pretty large volume Cannondale dealer. I am picking up my 2011 Carbon Flash 3 29er on Thursday, I'll ask for you.

    No definite answer, but they are thinking about three weeks to a month. BTW I LOVE my new bike, put 19 miles on it today.

    I'm glad you like your Flash 3 29er.
    Does it do a really good job of absorbing rear bumps?

    My last MTB was a 90's Diamond Back Racing "Team Issue" alum hardtail. So this feel like a rocket ship!!!. I have only ridden hardtails, steel and alum. This does WAY better than of soaking up the small bumps, rocks etc.on the tail. So much so, I found myself getting a little lazy with my line selection. When I would hit a square edged bumb, I was reminded I was on a hardtail. No complaints at all, it is way better than I was expecting.

    I ordered a 2011 Carbon Flash 2 July of 2010. It was given an ETA September, which slipped to October, then February '11. Strangely it randomly turned up at the end of December.

    If Cannondale have stock you will get a delivery date. If they don't you will get a random guess...

    I'll bet I won't see my 2012 Carbon Flash 1 (29'er) until 2012

    I can tell you that they're not on the dealer site yet, so there's no real way to order one yet. I check just about everyday... cause I want one!

    Just had the first ride on mine - Rocket ship is spot on! It really is amazingly comfortable too.... It actually feels quite odd to ride because it's so solid and stiff when you pedal but really cushy at the same time.

    I'm going to venture an educated guess of 21.0 lb. with tubes, no pedals.

    20-21 lbs for my XL with tubeless and no pedals. Oh, and btw, anyone want to buy mine? (plz?)

    Great bike, but I have my reasons for selling it stated in the description.

    So. I was doing some reading, looking around and get to the post above. I was looking for some Flash eye candy and the picture above has been saved. It is accurate and the online catalog is not.

    Sorry to those who clicked on the eBay link above and found it already sold. I'm responsible. Who thinks both buyer and seller got a good deal?

    Reason enough for a First Post!!

    Seems like a good price for the 2012. What is MSRP on the 2012 Flash Carbon 29er 1 anyways? It is not listed on the site (on top of the wrong picture still being there).

    Of course, not having a warranty is always a concern when buying used.

    Mine arrived.

    Changed:

    ENVE XC UST wheelset
    Schwalbe Racing Ralph Snakeskin
    ENVE Seatpost (not pictured)
    XX Brakes
    XX Cassette
    EggBeater 3

    19.9 lb.

    Seems to be stiffer than the 2010 I had previously. Don't know if it's because it's a Hi-Mod or if they changed all the laminates. Out of the box, this is one of the best looking bikes I'm seen.

    The crank seems to be a relabeled X.0. 710 grams, with bottom bracket. Same as the X.0, and exactly the same shape/construction.

    Mr. Brentos,
    My 2012 Flash Carbon 1 is on order. I noticed you have the Enve wheels. Was this by request or replacement as others I've seen had the Stan's. Same with the XX brakes and cassette (compared to XO). Not sure what I'll find on mine when it arrives (my company has a pro deal with C'Dale and it's being shipped directly from the factory. I am far from a pro rider, however :-)).

    Thanks

    Thanks for the informative reply. It appears that you essentially converted your 1 to a Team Issue and saved about a pound over your stock 1. This gives me hope my XL stock 1 should come in about 21.5 pounds without pedals.

    Good luck on the trails.

    Cool. I'm thinking this will be my steed for 2012 if I can get one. I'm still amazed that Cannondale has the wrong picture up on their site. That's a little crazy. Anyone know of the availability of these. I've gotta sell my superfly first and then get this on order.
