    You know, I understand that most buyers are going to be on mediums & large's. But good God, no XL's at all yet? We tall folks have money to spend as well! Wish the hell Salsa would get my bike to me.

    Are these pre-ordered bikes or do you think some of these will actually hit showroom floors for random sale?

    My XL XX1 build is a pre-order. They damn well better not be back ordered.

    I was just wondering if there will be extra BG's beyond the pre-ordered ones that will be available now or is it 100% pre-orders?

    If you pre-ordered one, you will be fine. If not, there are going to be shortages on those extras. That is just my educated guess.

    Well my shop got in an XL X9 build and I went for it. Tired of waiting and the XX1 may not arrive for a few more weeks. Not too disappointed, though, it's a sweet bike either way. I added a few upgrades before it left the shop (SLX brakes, S Works carbon bar & seatpost) Might convert to a 1x10 later on to shed some more weight and will most likely do the tubeless conversion as well. Happy man, I am!

    You will love your BG X9. Think of the money you saved by going X9! Dang XX1 cassettes are $400 alone.

    I hear ya! I was also having nightmares about ripping off that deraileur as well. I figure if I want to switch to a 1x drivetrain in the future I can do it for less by staying away from XX1, although that's a damn fine drivetrain.

    I have my medium X9 version built up with the changes being XO Trail brakes and a wider Raceface handlebar. It came out at 29lbs 8 oz with pedals and a computer. Converting to tubeless on Friday! We have four more in boxes ready to build!!

    I tend not to like white rims but they really look sharp on the Bear Grease.

    I almost kept the blue wheels off this years Beargrease, but then when I saw these I changed my mind. They look good. I even kept the white grips!

    Just six weeks behind schedule, what a way to run a business. Looks like some bikes shops have had multiple shipments and others are still waiting.

    Glad you re receiving yours.
