Just ordered a Spearfish 2 frame
Coulden't pass up the price from Unaversal cycles $800.
Universal Cycles -- Salsa Spearfish 2 Frame - 2012
I am going to swap all the parts from my hardtail over. I can't wait to get this bike up and running. I really didn't think I was going to get in to a full suspension for the 2013 race season. The only hangup is going to be the seat post. I have 2 31.6 posts. One is a crazy light Ti post but becasue its 27.2 and its flared out to 31.6 about half way down the post I might not be able to use it. Or I have a carbon campy chours post that's 400mm long. I really want to use the Ti post.
Fact: Orange is the fastest color!
That's what I am hopping. It looks like I got the last one. I really hope there inventory is right.

I am really impressed with this bike. I didn't think it could handle better then my hardtail. But It gets around switchbacks better even with the wheelbase being 2in longer. I still have to dial in the rear shock. Its really squeaky for some reason. And I need to lower the bars a bit. And find a way to pull 2lb off of it. But I think I am really happy with the bike.
