    Thats good they'll just start shipping then.

    I was told by my LBS that they were looking at 6- 8 weeks for delivery. This was last Friday

    Yup... still waiting here, I ordered a polished frame a few months ago. I have all of these parts sitting at home for the bullit, it sux. On top of that Diablo opened this past weekend, I was on a hardtail, but it was still lots of fun.

    We'll join

    We'll go ahead and join the waiting list. We are waiting on 3 of them, 1 for a customer, 1 for a mechanic and 1 for the floor. Can't wait to see them myself, as a huge fan of the original Bullit... Our first one should be here in a few weeks.

    Tumestus you lucky dog! Good for you mate, you must be stoked to have the new frame. My bet is that its the 135mm drop out model, Yeh? Still id love to see some pics of the non drive side and drop outs if you have a cam' and have a chance? Good news means mines closer

    will the orange color on the bullit be as bright and vibrant as it is on the heckler? on the bike builder for the bullit the orange is dingy and dull. if it's actually bright, i may think about the orange frame instead of white....

    Yeh Tumestus, you have a nice Bullit. The color is nearly fluro looking? Personally i dont like the color much but it doesnt change the fact that its gonna rock. It'll be interesting to see how us old school bullit riders are going to compare it to the earlier models. Try this link for another new bullit. http://vpfree.pinkbike.com/bb/viewto...ghlight=bullit

    Just ordered my own LimeGreen Bullit with coil and 150mm rear-axle. 6weeks of waiting, all the time to drive me crazy. In the front gonna put my trusty Boxxer Team 04.

    Limegreen is THE color for Bullit, IMO its crazy bright and uber cool!

    wow. that's a good-lookin bullit. it makes me want one right now! this is really an extreme exercise of my patience. but i'm due for some cash flow to the tune of however much AAA deducts off of the drivers insurance bill. then the parents give it directly to me. i'm so glad i barely got it with my 3.03 gpa. i'm a bad student, i know.

    Amen, brother! I was thinking that same think while ago, where are all the new Bullits?
    Waiting list is mile long and local dealer says they are selling like hotcakes.

    But where are they?

    Mmm i like the Black, it kinda looks like ano? Geez i hope it is! Gotta wonder if they are 150mm spaced rear ends, the axles look skinny though the drop outs look 150x12 style?

    We got our medium orange with domain fork, and R FR kit just the other day. I'll take pics as soon as its built, which we have a few in line first, but we can move it up in the line.

    tell me how that domain rides. from the specs it looks like a single crown boxxer, but at that price point? oh well, been waiting to hear a ride report on it, mostly on the small bump sensitivity.

    I talked to the LBS... My front triangle is done, they are just waiting for the rear triangle. Should have it soon!!!

    If I would have ordered powdercoat instead of polished, I would have had it a while ago. Its ok I think the polished is worth the wait!

    I go through my sister, who works in the trade. Her Bullit though is not even in the country, so I can't gloat to much. I got a large black ano, she has a medium on order. His and hers again!

    Nice. I need to make friends with someone 'on the inside'... lads at my LBS just laugh when I ask 'em to get me stuff at trade. I guess EVERYONE tries it.

    Am on the verge of pulling the trigger on a new Heckler; apologies for the blatant threadjack, but have you got any clue as to whether any particular dealers take priority? Or does it just depend on the dealer to get in touch with Jungle with any orders? I'm thinking of going with Stif, as they've always been great in the past.

    So far as I know it is first come first serve. You could always call Jungle and speak to Dickon or Nick - they may be able to tell you if they know of any dealers with frames on order for stock, rather than for a specific customer.

    Ah joy. Nice Bullit.2 large frame arrived. Painted black, not ano. Stickers look like some pikey has stuck them on too, badly cut out around the welds. Its off back to Jungle and I go back on the waiting list 'cos they have no black ano.. Arse.

    The news on anodised in the UK is "2 months or so". I spent an hour or two looking at alternatives last night and othe rthan a VPFree, which is a 8month wait, I couldn't find anything else I'd like. Brand loyalty sucks

    So your gonna wait the 2 months ey? Man that is loyalty. Hopefully 2 months is accurate, i mean lets face it, the whole wait has been a load of BS.
    SC should go out of there way to make accurate ETAs for all us loyal folk, looks like im gonna have to look into my ETA again.

    If anyone in the Vancouver area is looking for one (or several) Steed in NV has a few built up on the sales floor (saw them on Saturday afternoon). They might even have a few hanging from the rafters up in the bare frame area although I didn't go up to look.

    Is it just me that thinks how the top of the logo gets cut out to fit round the shock mount, looks rather cheap and tacky?

    My sisters medium black anodised frame has arrived this morning. Its drop dead gorgeous! No nasty cutting bits of the stickers out to fit around the welds, they just etched the logos right across them. I took photos with my phone, but they are blurry and shite Worst part is my large is still nowhere in sight, plus my sister is away for a week now, so the Bullit will be same in a box with no-one to love it! :'(
