    Noah, are you saying the HR2 is definitely coming out at some point? And in a 2.2 size?

    LBS emailed to say Santa Cruz is receiving parts on the 9th, and shipping my LTc on Monday of next week. Should have it in Colorado on Friday. Just in time for the shipping of my Arch EX/i9's.
    All this reading of the ones already shipped is KILLING me!

    That sucks, but don't feel bad as you are not alone. Normally I build up my bikes from the ground up, but I recently bought a full build set up that I was totally stoked on, also got a great deal. However in 2 weeks I destroyed the rear wheel, rear derailleur, chain, and put a nice mark in the frame. Totally depressing, and expensive, but it happens. Its the nature of the beast sometimes.
    Shimano is really good about warranty stuff, especially if your shop has a good relationship with them. Worth a shot.

    That does suck!
    How did you destroy the hub so quickly?

    Actually took a lunch today (a long one) and went to the LBS. They dissasembled, regreased the bearings and trued up my wheel while I BS'd with them in the back. They said it wasn't destroyed but that it just looked like that it likely wasn't adjusted correclty to begin with and to get used to having to adjust those types of bearings (the axle was very loose). The ball bearings fell out of the drive side and the seal was a little screwed up.

    To date I have destroyed a couple of lower quality Shimano Hubs (575 type stuff) and the only Mavic hub (on a set of crossmax), When I could hear the squeal through the canyon I knew there was an issue.

    I have never had an issue with the DT350's on my 6er, and had nothing but problems prior to the DT's, so I just assumed I had killed this non DT hub too.

    So in retrospect I may have jumped the gun on calling horse crap on Shimano. I do however appreciate everyones willingness to let me lay on their couch and complain though .

    I will hopefully find out this weekend if really is OK. Thanks Folks

    No, hatin on the Yellow Bro Waiting on mine ... I agree 100% with Phatass about the MT8's brakes ... I would go with Shimano 2012 - XT's or XTR Trail or Race - Have then on my S/C TB carbon - The Shimano XTR Trail with the Metallic pads ... Great stopping power !!!

    The MT8s slow me down just fine, 180 rotors front and rear help, but these brakes kick arse in my opinion, quiet, absolutely drag free, plenty strong and stupid light. To each his own I guess. Couldn't be happier with the bike and overall build.

    Very Cool !!! Cali D.O.C No Joke !!! :thumbs up: BIGME - Keep an eye on those Shimano hubs - No sealed bearings ... When, I had Shimano XT wheels the 20mm & the 15mm - 26 inch ... A Good LBS tech told me - Clean, grease, adjust them often ... If not, the bearings chew up the insides of the hubs ... Note - Happen twice to me - Note Shimano replaced the wheels both times ...
