    The Anthems are coming! The Anthems are coming!

    So after ordering an Anthem 2 a couple of weeks ago at my shop, I found out they were not quite ready. They are planning on week 50, so they should finally start to come into the warehouses this next week. Even though it hit -13 degres last night here in Lawrence, I'll be ridin' that thing all over the place! I'll post pics when I get them. Gonna' slap on an XT cassette and some Conti Explorer Pros and call it good.....for now. Anybody else waiting for theirs?
    -Chris

    P.S. Oh yeah, this is my first post, so hello!

    I have been waiting also. My dealer got an Anthem 3 a month ago, but no 1 or 2. I am leaning toward a Anthem 2 right now. Sounds like I will get a test ride soon.

    My LBS told me the 06 reigns have been delivered to the supplier and a my R2 should be in about a week or 2.I would think the Anthems are there as well. 8" of snow Friday,3rd snow of the year,no big hurry at this point.

    I am curious what the Anthem 2 will weigh. I also wonder why they have spec the Mavic 717 rims that look like they are for rim brakes when they have a 717 that is disc specfic. What happened to tubeless tires and rims? My 2001 Giant NRS has tubless tires and rims.

    My Reign 2 came in and is ready to role today.He said the Anthem's are in as well.Looks like the ugliest gray in the shop,they definetly meant battleship gray.Lucky it will be covered in mud by the end of the weekend.The rest of the bike looks awesome,nice parts pick,Nixon Air,RP3,DTswiss hubs,WTB rims,SRAM X7 shifters,X9rear,shimano front der. By his terribly out of wack scale,I got an average weight of 33 pounds for the 20" bike w/o pedals.

    Pictures are a good thing...
    One of my friends recently died of a coke overdose and it really got me thinking, "damn, maybe I should start drinking pepsi"

    I was lucky enough to get the race a Anthem 1 at a 24h race. My inside rep brought 4 of them 1 for each team mate. Best race bike I have ever ridden. My Anthem 2 just showed up at my shop so I need to sell my trance 3.

    Why only 1 bottle cage bolt on the underside of the down tube? Definetly going to put on a bash gaurd for the shock but still think 2 bolts would be better.
