    Vertex 50 rsl available?

    Hey guys/gals, just wondering if anyone can tell me if the new carbon Vertex bikes are currently available through dealers in the US at this time. Must have one. Thanks

    Likely just after New Year... I have a carbon 70 pre-ordered at my LBS. I've had an opportunity to test ride one and they are a waaay cool hardtail. I like the carbon Vertex 70 much better than my '07 scandium Vertex Team, and it weighs less!

    Awesome, just listed my Dos Niner on Ebay. Hope that I don't regret it.

    I've never ridden a Dos Niner, but the carbon Vertex really is the most solid and competent feeling hardtail I've ever been on. The rear end is stiffer than the scandium frame so you do feel more of the square edge hits if you stay seated, but that is waaaaaay outweighed by the responsiveness to pedal input and the crisp handling.
