    HDR Delays

    Hey guys,

    Hopefully someone on this forum can shed some light on this topic. I ordered an XL reverse vitamin P HDR on the day they were released through my LBS. In that time I am continually been told it will ship in two weeks time. Two weeks come and go and I get told the same thing again. You know the story. I emailed Ibis directly and they told me to deal with my LBS so that didn't help me at all. On having a look through these forums I see that some people were waiting for over 12 months when they released the SLR a few years back. I am from NSW in Australia so that might have something to do with it - I am guessing they fill the US and Euro orders first. I was hoping someone with some inside knowledge would at least be able to give me a straight answer with the approximate wait times. Anyone in AUS have an XL yet?
    Thanks

    I haven't been waiting that long but I have gotten the two weeks line twice.

    I was told that the XL's should arrive on Monday or Tuesday (tomorrow or the day after).
    The two week delivery date keeps being extended but hopefully this is a concrete time stamp.
    I'll post something if I hear differently.

    My L HDR has been delayed by about 3 weeks, but I was told it officially shipped on Friday.

    HDR Delays

    I have an XL Ripley on order and this sounds very familiar.

    For the record, I'm waiting on a large. Supposedly the X01 spec is the cause for the latest hold-up.

    wow, that XO1 stuff is still not in?? was told it is 'in customs' and decided to go with XX1 instead.

    XL HDR ordered, my Ibis Dealer tells me it will be in by Friday 9/27.

    Thanks for the info Eric. Hopefully this date is somewhat correct

    I am hoping as well. I am waiting on frame only. Apparently, if you want the blue, they have them in stock.

    Well if yours shipped Friday hopefully that means mine is en route too. I ordered mine August 15th, you?

    I'm wishing I had splurged for XX1 now. I thought it was too steep an upsell but I could've been riding!

    All of the above?

    My understanding is that there were a lot of recent delays for parts coming out of Asia and specifically Taiwan, first due to typhoon weather in the area which was slowing/stopping shipping for a spell, then customs over here in US ports (Bay Area). A mix of Force Majeure and Homeland Security Theater.

    I suspect it's hitting a number of companies, and the X01 stuff is so new that most won't have any on hand so they're stuck waiting for incoming goods.

    I ordered mine Aug 28th. I also heard that X01 shipping and customs was causing the delays.

    I have an XL rev vit P on order as well. I've been told that the frames that keep arriving do not pass quality control, and they keep waiting for a batch that is up to snuff.

    and yes, the blue is available.

    Following exactly the same pattern as seen by Tranny,HD,Ripley. First runs are all a bit late despite best intentions. Note for future, stop trying to be first kid on block with new toy

    Haha, I wasn't. I was trying to be the last kid to get a Vit P in XL. They sold out prior to me ordering.

    FWIW, it seemed like it was bad paint/decal QC that was the issue, not the frame integrity itself. At least that's what the word on the street was.

    ...and as you said, the Cobra Blues were not impacted.

    Regardless, seems like it's more parts flow then anything else right now.

    Besides myself, I know 5 other folks riding blue frames, have yet to see one of the black/Vit P's.

    Every one of my friends including myself would have gotten black if it did not have the Vit P accents, personally I don't dig it, but to each there own

    That's exactly where I came down on the color choice too. I really like last year's HD black with grey accents. It's too bad as I assume the matte carbon will weather wear better than the gloss blue, even if the blue is damned sexy while new.
