    Damn!! I wish I didn't see the sale. Too late I pulled the trigger.

    I cant tell from the pic but does the VPLS TRc have a 142x12 or std dropouts?

    Standard dropout.
    In fact, that's probably the reason why they are blowing out these frames with these super discounted prices.
    A couple of years ago right before the Blur LT went to tapered Head Tube and only painted frames, chainlove.com sold a bunch of anodized straight Head Tube Blur LTs for like 50% off MSRP. This time I guess Santa Cruz decided to do the sale themselves.

    Because they've been the best sellers for the past 12 months or so?

    Mine was cancelled as well (large nomad)! Really lame. I already had other stuff on the way for it. You think they could have had the inventory correct. Pretty disappointed.

    Man, when I saw this I started to drool! But instead of click click, I had a Sierra Nevada Beer Camp limited release Oatmeal Stout, took a deep breath, and said to myself, self, your Nomad will do just fine Can't wait to see the 2013's though.

    I knew I wouldn't be the only one. It's a shame though. I really wanted the frame. I blame their website for these problems. Seems they were taking orders and giving confirmations for inventory that never was there to begin with.

    Interesting that so many are still listed on the sale. You'd think they'd pull the plug if the demand were selling them out so quickly.

    Is the Nomad the only one that's been cancelled for anyone (the facebook page shows one cancelled as well) or have other orders been dropped? Since those aren't available on the sale page anymore.

    EDIT: I someone has had a Large Heckler cancelled as well... also no longer listed online. Hopefully they are keeping the sale up to date.

    Yeah, not very good business. I'm guessing that most of the people who bought the Nomad frames that sold out quickly were people who follow them on facebook or were browsing the website. Way to tick off a bunch of loyal Santa Cruz followers! Maybe they just need to leave the bike sales to their dealers (who also are probably not happy about this sale).

    It is kinda weird that the site would take orders for non-existent inventory. I mean, I'm no sales expert, but isn't the inventory a pretty automatic calculation? As soon as "add to cart" is clicked, shouldn't it have updated the inventory?? I don't get it . . .

    A nice move on SC's part would be to offer those who DID order and submit payment a nice discount on the current gen frames.

    In my experience SC has done an exceptional job taking care of me, which is one of the reasons I go back to them. Seven frames since 1999 for myself or family. I trust they will sort this one out.

    Agreed, I think that would be a good move but so far all I've heard was a basic "your order has been canceled" type email.

    Even if they ran out of old frames, they should honor your order with a new frame if they took the order. It's what good companies do.

    DOH!

    That does really suck, but its the nature of shopping for anything with a model cycle.

    That was me with the cancelled black large heckler even though I was told my order was current as of this morning.

    Maybe SC should stick to clearance sales in their parking lot and not on the internets.

    That would have pissed me off even more since I was literally just at their parking lot the day before hah.
