    Calling all 2011 Stumpy HT 29ers....

    Hi,

    I'm busting a gut waiting for my Stumpjumper S-Works 29er HT to arrive. Has anybody received theirs or any other 2011 HT yet? I'm looking for photos to relieve my new bike cravings!

    Cheers

    The wait is brutal...

    My LBS thought only a couple more weeks until I see my 29er S-works HT frameset. I hope he is right but i'm not holding my breath!

    I ordered back in September, and was originally told around New Year's for delivery.

    Patiently waiting for 2011 S-Works HT 29, also; afraid to ask my shop for an update because I don't want to hear "March".

    The dates have been getting pushed back. If you were lucky to get in the first shipment, last I heard was Feb. Here's to hoping! I've got a green frameset on order. I'll jump ship and get a regular red/white one if those come in first though.

    My wife's red/white 26" S-works HT did show up a while back.... a bit early even. So maybe we will all get lucky too.

    Just before Christmas my bike shop said I could expect my frameset late Jan early Feb.

    I'm still distracted by winter sports so my frameset's arrival isn't driving me mad...yet!

    I'm using time and money to cache the parts required for my build in the corner of my small shop. I have another thread detailing that build, how are you building yours?

    Mine will have a 1x10 (38T by 11-36) transmission. The remaining components will fall into place.

    The online dealer site lists a couple dozen 2010 19" HT complete bikes coming in early Feb. The 2011 framesets and bikes are all over the calendar depending on size and color. Some framesets are listed as early as the beginning of March to the as late as June. Most of the complete bikes are listed as early March.

    Is this reliable info? Specialized is still shipping 2010's?! I find that hard to believe...

    If it's true, which I doubt, then my 2011 complete bike may not be here until halfway through the race season?!

    The best and most reliable answer is have your LBS that you ordered from log in and check.

    The 2010 was a mistake on my part. I looked quick on the dealer site for the status of the 2011 bikes and put down they were slated for early February but then went back and edited my post to 2010's and it should have read that the 2010 19" are in stock and they probably arrived long ago. Gotta quit multitasking.

    Yea, they have a TON of 2010 19" completes. Obviously a huge mistake was made. At this point, you think the would have pulled them apart and used the XX groups for other bikes... maybe sold the frames off, or something.

    A couple months back they have like 40 of them in that size.

    I don't know why they make as many as they do. THEY should build them on a 1:2 ratio, for every one purchased make two more for potential sales.

    I just ordered my 19" tonight! I had a 2010 model that I hated to sell but wanted the carbon wheels and brain fork. IMO the 2010 is a much nicer looking bike, not that the 2011 us ugly, just liked the arched frame on the 2010.

    Actually didn't get an eta. I will get one tomorrow as I had ordered a set of carbon wheels and forgot to cancel so need to give them a call.

    S-Works cranks with XX rings. XTR 2x10 for remainder of the drivechain. Slowly building a stack of component boxes in the corner of the bedroom.

    Still got to decide on the wheels. Crest 29ers and ZTR hubs.

    Had to ask.

    I'm a huge Spec fan and own several but I'm looking for any edge possible. For this season I was planning on this bike as my only race bike. However, has anyone considered the new Scott Scale carbon 29er? I have no experience on that bike but the reports are that it is a bit lighter and a bit more comfortable, well less harsh, to ride.

    I really wanted to ride one before I ordered but I don't think there is any chance of that. Can you tell me what you factored into your decision to go with the Stumpy?

    Both the Scott and the Spesh are going to be brilliant bikes but I decided that I wouldn't notice much difference between them so ... this is going to sound really sad but I'll say it anyway!

    The decision came down the colour!!!

    (If youíve finished laughing!)
    I've had two all black bikes in a row and the Scott didn't appeal, whereas I think the Spesh Flo Yellow is pretty darn cool.

    The other is the brand. Iíve been a fan of the Big S ever since my first Stumpy M2. Iíve had some nice bikes since but for the last 6 years I've missed that bike and I thought it was time to get reacquainted! Scott as a brand doesn't appeal to me in the same way - but thatís just me!

    So sorry no concrete performance enhancing reason for my choice! Iím buying the bike mainly with an aim of racing and the brain tells me the Scott may be the marginally better bike but I went with the heart on this one.

    I really like the Scott but for me it was;

    loyalty to LBS
    carbon wheels
    brain fork

    in that order

    I picked up my 19" 2011 Stumpy Evo on Tuesday, I only ordered it on New Years Eve so really lucked out with the devivery. Hopefully weather and visitors permitting, I can do a short ride this weekend, until then it's just sitting in the garage

    Ok, stopped back at the shop today and canceled the S-Works order. I have been contemplating FS for a while now. I turn 44 tomorrow and decided its time to pamper myself a bit. So full susp it is, ordered an Epic Evo 29er. With the money saved I will be updating to the carbon wheels, XX cassette and maybe a few more bits.

    There are a lot of changes.... the frames were totally redesigned. The head tubes are shorter and now use a standard tapered fork. The BB is PF30 instead of the previous OSBB. Thinner seatstays on the 2011 bikes, 27.2mm seat posts. The Expert and S-works bikes now come with Rebas that have Brain dampers installed.

    Yes, but it is different. You need an adapter crown race to run a normal tapered for in the pre 2011 Spec frames. You can get that from specialized if you need one.

    Thanks, I am a much better rider because of that bike. She handles well, very fast and goes over obstacles like its nothing (this is my first 29er). This bike took the place of a 15 yr old Trek 6500 so my frame of reference is a bit off.

    Unfortunately I have been off the bike for a month due to a shoulder dislocation. Can't wait to get back out though.

    I know the Single Speed frames got pushed back until April. I'm hoping to find out something regarding the regular HT frames today. The website still says march.... but that doesn't mean much.

    @ Briscoe: Do you have any info on the 29er SWorks complete bikes? I ordered back in September from my LBS, which happens to be a Specialized concept store. I've been pestering them for any info, but all they can/will tell me is that my large will be one of the earliest deliveries due to fact that they are a concept store, and that it is entered into the corporate inventory list as a sold bike (versus a bike that a shop will put on the floor hoping to sell). Apparently, those two things bump me up the priority list (along with an early order date), but what they can't tell me is when the first shipment of complete bikes is expected.

    If it's going to be April/May, I may need to enact plan B: Orbea USA has Alma's in stock and waiting to ship... My local race series kicks off in April with 3 races that month, and I was hoping to have some rides before then to get things dialed in (never had a "brain" before...)

    Don't have any info on the Completes. But I do know the frames for the 29 S-works geared bikes got bumped back as well. I was told end of march, early april today for my frame. keep in mind that mine is also scheduled to be in the first shipment received in the states.

    I really wanted one of these bikes.... ordered it a LONG time ago. But, I think I'm going to have to switch to something else. Niner and Orbea have frames in stock and ready to go.

    Hmmm, would love some more details on the frame design problems... It may just be hearsay, but if there really is an inherent design issue, I may need to go elsewhere...

    There have not been any problems with the 2011 frames. These bike are simply still being produced. If you would like the most accurate estimate for when they will be available, you will need to speak with your Specialized dealership. Availability will be dependent on when/if your dealership ordered their bikes...

    Thanks for responding, Robert.

    If you are able to provide the information, can you tell us how many S-Works 29er HT bikes/frames Specialized expects to sell in a given model year? I know that we are all participants in a 'fringe sport", and that we are talking about a high-end bike that doesn't sell in huge volumes. That said, do you guys sell 100 per year? 1000 per year? I'm just curious...

    The ultimate goal is to produce the exact amount of bikes that the market will purchase. This is the best way to keep a company healthy and producing good quality products. Getting the number spot on is nearly impossible of course. The exact numbers aren't something that I have access to or something that we put out there so I'm sorry but I can't even venture a guess. Just know that our intention is to keep everyone supplied and happy the best we possibly can.

    Cool; thanks for responding, anyway. I suspected that you wouldn't be able to answer my question, corporate secrecy and all...

    I'm sure you understand that the griping and moaning in this thread isn't bashing the bike, or Specialized, at all. Rather, you have a bunch of guys (and girls?) with cabin fever, spinning away the winter in our garages and basements, and getting anxious that our equipment plans for the race season are going to fall through. At least, that's it from my perspective.

    You bet. Glad I could chime in. I totally understand where people are coming from. Having seen and ridden the bikes in person, I know how amazing they really are. I would be anxious to get my hands on one as well. We LOVE feedback, please don't hesitate to keep it coming... we want to offer the best products possible and everyone's feedback is crucial to our achieving that. Every comment counts!

    Hi Robert,

    Thank you for posting.
    I realise you donít mention dates as clearly you cannot know when each bike is going to be delivered to particular customers, as this is down to a number of variables.

    However, you mention that they are in production. Are you able to give us a hint as to when the first bikes/frames will be shipped to dealers?

    As LilGasPasser says it will help calm the cabin fever just to know the bikes are on the way!

    As I mentioned earlier, it's going to be end of March/early April for the first shipment of frames to the USA. That came directly from Specialized when we checked on the frame I ordered last fall (in the first shipment coming to the USA).

    Maybe they'll show up early, but if they are actually being made right now (as Robert says) I highly doubt that. They would still have to be finished up, painted, shipped, pass through customs, and then distributed.

    I pulled the plug on mine when I heard about the April time frame. That's just too late for me. Racing will have started and I've got a riding trip planned for early April as well.

    I've tried for two years to get an S-works 29er and both times the dates got pushed back further and further on me. One of these years I'll be able to snag one! Next year I'm riding an Air9 Carbon instead. It should be here Friday! HA, never thought I'd be able to get a Niner before something from the Big S. Sucks.... I was really looking forward to the sweet Flow Yellow color.

    Sorry, but I do not have those dates either. The only dates are the ETA's given to the individual dealerships.

    I have been waiting for months on the new carbon wheels, finally arrived today. Although I haven't ridden them yet, they are crazy light. I am real happy I held out for these instead of going with Stans. They are lighter as well as having the 28mm os front cups for stiffness. I was concerned with weight limitations as I am 190 lbs, Specialized gives them a 240-250 lb limit.

    Santa Cruz Carbon Hardtail ?

    Might actually be here first.
    Seriously. Is there a problem with the design? How can a company get it so wrong?
