    2014 S Works FACT Crank Arms only available on complete bikes?

    I am building an S Works SJ and was planning on using 2014 S Works crank arms.

    I looked on Specialized's website and the S Works crank arms available are the same as the last couple of years (which I have). I called Specialized to ask about a Q factor question and also asked when the 2014 crank arms will be available. Apparently, the new design for the crank arms will only be available on complete bikes.

    Does that seem odd? I can see Specialized only offering a neutral color way in wheel sets or the crank arms; but it seems odd that they wouldn't make the new crank arms available at all.

    it seems like a bad thing especially b/c I think the majority of folks that would buy them are riding Specialized....so you are leaving loyal customers hanging....

    Probably limited production capability and can only make enough to satisfy production for the epics and stumpjumpers. I wouldn't be surprised if they are offered next year. Could also be doing it as motivation for people to buy the complete bike.

    I was told by specialized earlier this year that they would sell them individually once they got caught up on their full bikes.

    Specialized sells some of their parts through their warranty department as a non warranty item. I would ask my LBS to call the warranty department and get the cranks through them.

    I had to do this with a shock part for a Trail SX. Its not an officially for sale part, LOL.

    The XX1 Spiders for Sworks cranks were initially only this route.
