    I believe you are correct, sir. Good catch! I missed that one.
    I put TREK Superfly in my signature (so have to know my TREK stuff!)

    But for 2014, the current X-Cal line has replaced the Wahoo (X-Cal 5), Marlin (X-Cal 7), Mamba (X-Cal 8), and Cobia (X-Cal 9). The Superfly 5 has replaced the 2013 X-Caliber.
    Not quite correct (but close...)

    All the X-Cals ONLY have the Alpha-Gold-Alpha frame.. They are just now offering a 'lower price point' Superfly (still has Alpha-Platinum-Alpha frame, BUT it has the Recon fork)-----that is a lower level offering (in the past) that was NEVER seen on the Superfly (or Paragon before that..)

    Even the 2014 X-cal '9' (even with the better fork still ONLY has the Alpha-Gold frame..)

    So the Superfly 5 is still a real Superfly (only with the cheaper fork..)

    p.s. The 2013 XCal had the 'better fork' on it (REBA)----but even the 2014 'top of the line' X-Cal '9' has this newer fork now (not a REBA, but better than the Recon)---called the xc something (that is a new OEM offering for TREK I see)-----

    ---And I could go on about the lower offerings and how they differed (but you get the gist...)----

    Remember I have TREK in my signature (so I have to know my stuff 110%..)

    Hi everyone, I'm still new around here but thought I'd add to this ongoing thread.

    Here's my Haro Flightline 16" with several upgrades.


    Wife's Specialized Myka- craigslist find! Already upgraded to new riser bars, stem and hydraulic brakes.

    I was talking about price ranges and component spec.
    Yes, the Superfly has the Alpha platinum alloy frame, but it is in the price bracket and component spec of an X-Caliber (2013), so it has replaced it. There is no argument there. Cobia has the Alpha gold alloy frame, like the new X-Cal, and it has the same component spec level.
    XC32 Soloair is NOT better than Recon, but it is RockShox's newest addition. (Just below the 30 Gold). The XC forks are the cheapest, then Recon Silver, then 30 Gold, then Recon Gold, then Reba, then SID (for XC forks at least).
    You see, I don't have a single brand name in my signature because I know most bike brands and component brands 99%.

    What does having TREK in your signature have to do with anything?

    Also, just going off the website, the highest level X-Cal (Simply X-Caliber) has a Reba RL. Surely someone with TREK in their signature would have known this. :P

    XC Series has been out for awhile and is the lowest level RS fork offered, and is a step or two below the Recon - if you account for the 30 Gold that RS released in the last year.

    The red/black/white X-Cal is no longer in production. The same goes for the Rig.

    I find this extremely false, since most of your advice is crap. You can read off the internet all you want, but in the end experience prevails.

    Some shops may be able to order a left over Rig or X-Cal, but availability will be limited.
    The X-Cal (2013) is not in the dealer book for 2014. I know because I have one.
    The Rig is, so the dealer may be able to order them.

    No. They are not Rohirrim.
    The Elf (archer) is Legolas of the Northern Realm, and the other is Aragorn, heir of Gondor.
