    2014 Spearfish Deliveries?

    Every few days I check this forum hoping someone has updated info or rumors on 2014 Spearfish deliveries. My Solo is approaching it's reserve on eBay and I have a Pivot 429 demo lined up for later this week. But, I really want to see the new Spearfish before I make a decision.

    Anyone heard anything new from their LBS?

    I first heard "November" and recently "December" from my LBS, but obviously it is now past mid December, so I wouldn't expect anything before the new year.

    I took the Pivot demo back to LBS #1. Nice, but not overwhelmed. LBS #2 says Spearfish deliveries end of January, first of February. I guess I will wait and see how I like the SF.

    Fred, you can go to this page in the link and then click on the build specs and go to the bottom of the page it will give the price of the frame. I think it's only going to be the green color offered for frame only.

    2014 Spearfish Delivery

    I've had an XX1 on order since they came out with pricing. Here is an email I received from Salsa last week:

    ======

    Dan,

    Thanks for the email. I donít have an updated ETA for that bike at this time. Still waiting on our end.

    Thanks for the update. Our Arizona racing season could be over before this bike comes out, I've decided to move on. Probably a Niner Jet 9, maybe even the RDO.

    Engineering wise 2014 Spearfish reminds me a lot of the 2008 Gary Fisher HiFi Pro 26" I had, but upgraded to 2014 specs. I like the simplicity of the rear shock\design, aluminum frame and the welds remind me of my bmx bikes in the 80's - spot on. After looking at\researching the 2014 XX1 Spearfish, it's made me re-think buying a 2014 Specialized Epic Expert Carbon WC. Decisions, decisions...But with delivery dates in question, my choice has probably been made for me already since the "S" is available in my size now...

    '14 Specialized Epic Expert World Cup
    '15 Niner RLT9 105
    '15 Cervelo R2, Enve 3.4 w/CK R45

    I pulled the plug on the Spearfish today and bought a Santa Cruz Tallboy. Hope you all get bikes soon, I'm sure they will be nice!

    This is consistent with what I just heard. My dealer called and said, "I'm getting your bike" and I had to remind him I bought a different bike. Timing, timing, timing!

    Talked with my LBS today and they said that a Spearfish 3 is shipping and should arrive this week. I'll believe it when I see it, but they said that the shipping notices sent out are rarely wrong.


    UPDATE Feb. 1, 2014: Still have not arrived. Like I said, I'll believe it when I see it.
