    I just picked up a 21" (did not pre-order). They also have a 17.5" in stock on the shelf.

    For what its worth, the bike weighed 24lb 3oz with tubes/reflectors/dork disc but no pedals. After going tubeless, adding XTR pedals, and removing reflectors it came in at 24lb 14oz. Everything stock.

    I heard that my local shop (rushmorebikes.com) had some 17.5's show up ... but not my 19" yet.

    Question for the guys who already have the bike.

    If Im not mistaking the seatpost is an aluminum model, what is the exact diameter?
    Found a carbon model on sale, 31.6mm and 400mm length.

    Maybe buying some nice parts to upgrade the bike can ease the agony of waiting another five months for the bike to arrive

    I don't have one but Trek's website says that's it's a 31.6 mm post. What "deal" did you find?

    "Bontrager Rhythm Elite, 31.6mm, zero offset"

    Youre right, should have looked at the Trek site.

    a local dealer is offering the Bontrager xxx carbon seatpost for 140

    I purchased a Hylix Carbon post off ebay, a clone of the xxx. Buy it now is $58 CAD, I won mine for $52. I've also seen clone xxx posts that carry the actual name on there as well as a one with Ritchey Superlogic stickers. I went with the Hylix because, the seller claims a two year warranty, it's the only one I saw on there that wasn't trying to pass it off as an original. I have it now, it looks good, holds a seat. I don't have an actual xxx to compare it to and I don't (yet) have a gram scale to weight it. At a third of the cost, I figured it's worth a try. I don't think I would buy a handlebar with the same logic, but a seat post, why not! When my SuperFly 100 SL arrives, sometime before Christmas 2013, I'll report back how it works/holds out. Though I suspect you don't want to wait until then!

    Take your pick...

    is it just me, or does the bike in the youtube video have a different frame?

    When I look at the seat tube in the youtube video, there seems to be a triangle where the seat tube meets the top tube.
    The bike in the Cycling Dirt article, and pictures posted in this thread and Trek website, show a solid corner at the seat tube.

    I just noticed that as well I'm not a fan of the look of the one on the video with the extra triangle. Doesn't match the picture posted from December on page 2 either nor the pics posted in the 29er thread of a pro model as well. I surely hope the elite isnt different or maybe that's just the EU model

    Noooo!

    It may be related to bike size.

    Cycling dirt mentions they have a large, 19"?, frame.

    Some new info

    Usually the larger frames have some sort of extra stabilization. I've seen it come and go on the carbon frames.

    As far as my order. I have spoken with my shop about how I thought it was weird that Trek was shipping bikes to store with pre orders in stead of shops with customer per orders especially after slow production and delays. The store trek rep was kind enough to ask around to see if the shops would trade "spots" since the bikes are just on display. Obviously nobody was willing to do that which I understand. I was told of my spot on the list and that only 5 bikes a month (possibly just my size and in the US) were being produced per month at this point. This means for those of us that ordered, you may be twentieth in line but the wait will be awhile. Being that this is a totally new frame that is now being produced offshore, they want to get it right. Quality vs quantity at this point.

    I am a stickler for the facts and trust my shop very much so I guess I just have to wait it out like the rest of you except I am at about eight weeks out I am a little more than 60% there.

    So, they're coming...

    Coming, but too slowly for me. I cancelled my Superfly 100 elite order and I'm building a Santa Cruz Tallboy carbon with XX1 components all for the same price.

    I still have the Superfly 100 Elite SL on order but I am a bit disappointed that for $5500 the bike is not speced with the remote lockout that fox has available. To get this upgrade from Fox it's expensive for the fork and unavailable for the rear.

    I would have to say that if I had a local Scot Dealer I would seriously look into the Spark 910. This bike is the same basic component spec at XT but with the remote lockouts and a cheaper list price by about $500.

    Only five bike frames a month, that won`t speed up the process...

    My dealer told me he is trying to switch my spot as well, as I know him he is not just saying that. He normaly is quite reliable when he makes a promise. That is why I havent cancelled yet.
    I am willing to wait it out, but the bike has to be here before May.

    I have a hard time believing the "5frames a month" thing. What modern assembly line runs that slow?

    60 per year, $5000,- per bike, minus shipping, LBS margin and R&D, looks like Trek is not making a profit here...

    The bike in the video is a XXL (23"). What does the XL look like? Wonder if it has that extra triangle. The XXL definitely does not look as sleek as a M or L...

    as stated

    I mentioned the five frames per month. This is not for the whole year because we have no idea how many store pre orders went out. This number may also be related to my size and country or region and model...meaning that five bikes in every size per style (sl pro, elite, sl) per month per country is alot of frames per month. One could assume since I have no hard data to back it up that (4) sizes times (3) styles times (5) frames times (+10) regions could mean 600 bikes a month or more. Maybe Im far below or far too high. We really have no idea. I just know that I am number 10-15 in my size and region. My size is probably the most popular since there are other shops that seem to have larger sizes as open stock.

    Laying up the specific patterns for an oclv bike is not exactly an assembly line process and is fairly specialized work. Although it is made oversees, it isnt quite as easy to build as a "China" frame. The new frame design coupled with a move to a new manufacturing country of origin means that it will be a slow rollout of a frame design that will be built with more efficiency as time passes. It will be around in this basic shape for probably four more years.

    And as far as any economics go, you may or may not be aware that in every new product the marginal cost of production is higher than the sales price until an equilibrium is met and then passed into the profit zone. This bike probably cost over a million dollars to produce the first one and although they are expensive, they are not quite covering that cost yet. I am personally very happy being part of an elite club with warranty like no other. I have ridden ONLY Trek since '91 for a reason. They always take care of me even when I am being a stickler for perfection, something we all know does not exist in the dirty abusive world of mountain biking. I know this wait will be well worth it! I waited years for the Big front axles on this bike and knew it would a long wait since I deal with a shop that seems smarter versus more speculative. This couple with how well they treat me, I could not be happier with my decision.

    I saw one!

    I was just riding Wissahickon Park in Philadelphia and bumped into a guy riding a fresh 19" Superfly100 SL Elite. He stopped and let me check it out. It is an awesome looking bike. The viz yellow is a lot more vibrant than the photos show.

    I was looking at the left side just a touch back from the head tube at the top/down tube junction. There are two internal cable route holes, one is high, the other is an inch or two lower. Clearly the higher one is for rear shock on/off switch cable routing. I believe the lower one could be used for dropper post stealth routing. Can anyone confirm this?

    Hi, lower one is for internal rear brake cable, it comes out under the bb. Probably could be used for dropper seat post,
    I fall down and I get up again

    Just finished up my ride and man am I happy with the bike. A few tweaks to do to it but on my local trail went over 4 minutes faster than I did Saturday on my Rumblefish pro. Needless to say I am very happy!

    Any one looking for a large? I just saw one posted on Sunday Cycles Face Book page from Phoenix AZ. I have no affiliation with the shop. Just wanted to give people a heads up that there is one available for purchase.

    Latest news from the dutch waiting list...

    Had just decided to visit my LBS and cancel my order and go get me a Scalpel.

    My dealer picked up the phone and called with Trek to cancel my order and was told the bike should arrive within three weeks.
    I ordered a 19" SF100 Elite in October, original date was March. Delivery got pushed back until end of May and the bike should now arrive within the next three weeks.
    Production was planned for next week.

    So within three weeks I should be able to post a picture of a European 19" aswell....can#t wait!

    I'm curious as to the trend of the due dates recently. I finally got a due date for my order and it's not going to be here until the end of June or beginning of July. Have they been arriving earlier then expected or have the dates been getting extended. Have a race in the middle of June I'm hoping to have it for. Hoping the date gets brought in closer to the beginning of June.

    Re: 2013 Superfly 100 Elite SL eta ?

    It appears they are being pushed further and further back. Especially for the 19" frames.

    When did you order yours?

    Guys that ordered in Oct/Nov/December sound like they've been getting pushed back to May.

    I ordered mine December 10. LBS originally told me February. Then, it got pushed back to May. That's when I cancelled my order. I'm now doing a custom Tallboy build.

    Has anyone tried fitting 2.25 tires on the bike?
    Looks like it would fit, but just asking to be sure before ordering them.

    From reading this thread it does seem that Trek does not know if a bike is sold as a pre order. They just send them to dealers that placed stock orders first whether it is for a sold bike or stock. It is disappointing to see people that have bought and paid for bikes seeing stock bikes just sitting on the showroom floor in other stores.
    I have a 2012 replacement frame from a 2010 that seems to be holding up but my wife's 2012 has a crack in the lower chain stay just like my 2010 so I don't think the cracking problem has been fixed yet. Time will tell.

    2013 frames are quite different from 2012 frames. I am Hopeful. Yet hopefully not naive.

    Got mine!

    It is a XXL, the only size with a surplus in the world right now...be patient smaller sized fellows, this bike is sick! I switched the seat and the post to a Thomson, set it tubeless and went for a test ride. It's a rocket, hooks up extremely well and feels really balanced. I think I am going to leave the cockpit stock.

    Real nice weather here today, sun is out, all the snow is gone, so couldn't resist and went for a quick ride despite my shoulder issues.

    Wow, the SF feels really great out there. Rode the bike out of the box, only added a water bottle and my own saddle (fizik gobi). Love the stiffness of the wheels and frame, responsiveness in and out off corners was amazing. Still have to properly set up the bike, waiting on new tires and not yet used to the cockpit. Had a 54cm flat-bar with bar-ends on my old sugar and fuel.
    But those are minor issues, can't wait to have a proper go on the bike once my shoulder is healed.

    The hard tail SuperFly Elite SL comes with the terralogic fork. The 100 has a performance series CTD with FIT damper.

    anyone have any good weight shaving options on their bike? I have replaced my seat tube with a carbon race XXX lite one and going to get some lighter industry nine torch wheels for it but curious where I can also cut some weight? Tubes are gone already.

    Trek is going to ship first come, first serve to dealers that placed orders regardless if its sold or a stock bike. August was the the first time these were offered to preorder. So if the dealer was smart and thought they would sell a few, they ordered some. If your dealer doesn't stock that bike, or waited awhile to order for stock, then yeah its going to be longer....pretty sure thats how it works with everything in life. As for the chainstay....they are aluminum on the new model.

    Arrived yesterday (Wednesday) almost a month early. Lucky me!

    I stripped it and started building it last night. Still waiting on a few items which should be here this week.

    Sadly, I couldn't weigh the frame.

    Finally had a descent go on the bike, my shoulder felt OK, weather was nice so made the first serious ride on the bike.

    What can I say, this bike is awesome. Every pedal stroke is transmitted to the wheels, the bike feels really responsive and efficient. Bike felt very confident on the descent and was eating the trails like no bike I ever rode. The suspension was very active, even uphill but never felt the need to switch to the CLIMB setting. I actually had the feeling the suspension was creating grip in stead of absorbing pedal power. Completely different feeling as I was used to on my Sugar and Fuel. To bad the Bontrager 29-1 tires were completely rubbish in the mud, still waiting on the rimstrips to instal the TLR Michelin Wildgripp'r 2.25 tires.
    Also the XT disc brakes surprised me, the overal feeling is pretty good. The brakes felt pretty smooth and responsive.

    So in short, I had a blast on the trails today, the bike absolutely matched my expectations.
    I am not planning to many changes, only things I'm changing is to improve my position on the bike. I'm changing the stem (going for a 90mm) and handle bar, with a bit more rise.

    Well, I had my first race this weekend on the new SF100. 50 miles of technical and rugged racing in southern utah (True Grit 50). The bike handled great. It responded well, didn't drag on the technical ascents (in propedal), and it provided just enough forgiveness to keep me relatively comfortable. I still have a little to do to dial in the suspension.

    I did have one problem. The pivot bolt attaching the rear shock, came loose twice during the race. I torqued all bolts to spec when I got the bike a few weeks ago, but it looked like the threadlock (blue) was dry and of no use. Hopefully it is not a problem in the future, but something to keep an eye on.

    It's definitely a full suspension racer. Thumbs up.

    Here's the bike. An XL weighing in at 21 lbs 2 oz with pedals and cage. Roval control sl wheels, XX1 drivetrain, and a couple other changes.

    I also have received my bike and could not be happier with it. 17.5 is 24.5 lbs totally stock with older xtr pedals installed. The bike rides excellently compared to my fuel ex 9.9. It rides just like a new bike should! Trimming the fat on this bike will be an expensive endeavour as nothing is too heavy out of the box, even the wheels(which have bladed spokes). Tires are not as listed on the website and are a 2.0 instead of 2.2. They are lite but twitchy. I have. Four rides since last Thursday(I ride a lot) all off road and the bike is smooth, fast, and quiet. I e ridden abp for years so I knew what to expect in that department but adding the big axles on both ends definitely made a difference in off camber stiffness.

    JTHOPS please send a picture of the "nut" side of the bolt that loosened. My guess is it is the upper bolt. I'd like a close up of the "nut" seated in the frame. I have an idea as to why it loosened.

    I have ridden oclv for seventeen years and this fit and finish is the best by far. I am unhappy that trek moved offshore especially for the top end mountain frame BUT the bike is amazing!! If there was a frame only option, the availability of the bike would be non existent not that it isn't already.

    If you have a chance to ride one, you will not be disappointed, except by the wait to get one after you order

    So long story short, coming from a high end fully kitted carbon fuel ex to this bike was a noticeable upgrade in technology and "feel"

    Kudos Trek... Just work on your supply line logistics.

    The bolt threads directly into the pivot. This is a picture of the link with the bolt missing. I would love to hear a logical reason for the bolt to unthread on its own. When I get home I'll get a pic of the threaded side of the pivot. Thanks.

    That actually isnt the bolt I was thinking about so the theory I had is shot. The main reason that bolt would unthread is because when the shock compresses, it the link is making an arcing motion and can unthread a bolt either during compression or rebound. It think rebound for this bolt but dont quote me on it. It really depends where the friction is coming from.

    Its a common occurrence on all full suspension bikes and therefore lock tite is needed. Most likely it was fine from the factory but when you tightened it you broke the bond. I tend to re lock tite anything after I move the threads, only for those things that require it. It will work better than relying on the old drier stuff. This will also keep away the creaks from these bolts since you would not want to use grease on these threads. Do not use anything but blue loc tite for the easiest future maintenance.

    I don't have a frame weight either, but as a reference point my 19" SL is a bit over 28lb out of the box, complete sans pedals.

    Totally agree with Baltistyle, when re-torquing bolts;

    just remove the bolt first, clean the threads and refit with a fresh layer of loctite, blue 243 Medium Strength.
    Just re-torquing a bolt often breaks the old loctite layer and has the opposite effect.

    Slightly related question, for my old Sugar and Fuel I have a nice diagram which shows the complete suspension assembly. Complete with the corresponding torque settings for all bolts, correct loctite compound (on the fuel and Sugar one bolt was glued in with 638 compound) and all Trek parts numbers for bolts and bearings. Anyone have such a diagram for the Superfly?

    2013 Superfly 100 Elite SL eta ?-269214_10151499000112453_1691715978_n.jpg

    Lost the reflectors and spoke protector, glued on a magnet and swapped cranks, also swapped saddle, stem and spacers/topcap. Threw on my chunky ATAC's and converted to tubeless. 26lb 10oz as pictured. Not nearly as light as the Elite out of the box but should be easy to take another 1.5lb off with a wheelset (I have nothing else with a rear through-axle .. for the moment).

    Wow, that's impressive.
    My 2012 weighs in @ 25lbs and it feels very light (to me) and compared to my 30+ lb stump jumper

    I'm coming from a Stumpjumper FSR (Many actually) as well. This year I finally decided to buy an actual XC bike. Look forward to riding it soon!

    Converted to Tubeless tonight, finally got the rimstrips from the LBS.

    Set the bike up with 2.25 Michelin Wildgripp'r, clearance seems fine.

    Also changed out the cockpit, fitted a RaceFace Next Riser bar and Turbine Stem. Seems my position on the bike suits me much better.
    Just for fun put the new and old cockpit parts on the kitchen scale.
    Bontrager RXL Stem, 100mm, 133 gram
    Bontrager RXL bar, 690mm, 175 gram
    RaceFace Turbine Stem, 90mm, 132 gram
    RaceFace Next 3/4" Riser, 725mm, 184 gram

    Bontrager parts actually are actually right on target considered their weight. Was kind of a surprise for me.

    Just took out the bike for a quick, 15km, testride.

    2.25 Michelin Wildgripp'r are great tires, here the ground was still frozen in places but the rest was like a mud bath. Those tires turn the bike into a monstertruck...

    New cockpit setup works great for me, looks great to... man to bad I don't have time to ride some more today...

    Awesome Multitool

    My wait was about five and a half months and worth every second. I hope it was built perfectly and you are out on the trail right now (after you clean, wax and protect it). I have ridden mine everyday that it hasnt been too wet and have not been disappointed at all and I am anal as can be. Enjoy and welcome to the club!

    2013 Superfly 100 Elite SL eta ?-img_0340.jpgI just use a high grade wax to stop stuff from sticking in the future. I use two layers of scotch 2228 moisture sealing electrical tape from the carbon armor to underneath the bottom bracket area and also anywhere the chain may go inside the front chainrings. Yes there is a metal plate there but I cover it all in TWO layers of tape so that if the chain ever comes off which it will, it will dig into the tape and not the carbon. Ive seen those plates rip right off. Those are my most important places to protect..Under BB and inside chainring area on down tube. Use as much or as little as you want. I use alot. I cut holes and slots in the tape for any cables and the drip hole on the bb. Some people also use Clear bra or other frame tapes to cover high wear areas like chain stays or higher up on the downtube than is protected from stock. I sent a picture but my bike is completely covered in dried mud right now and I have no intention of cleaning it anytime soon. The tape is very pliable and easy to shape and remove and a couple grams of protection goes a long way. You also want to protect any area wear the cables may rub as they will cut right into the carbon within a month or two without it. You can use lighter material for those areas.

    Man these are looking good!

    I've been trying to hold off from the SL "shiny new thing", so been upgrading my 2011.

    Crest wheels, carbon post/bar/etc and XX1. I don't think it's going be quite 21.0 lbs like the one above, but I'm going to the scale tonight thinking it will be ~23 or so.

    Baltistyle, that's some good info. Speaking of cable rub, the new SL's barely have any problem areas. All of my cables come out of the internal cable route holes and clear away from the frame/headtube area. The only place where there may be rub is where the rear brake hose runs on the chainstay. The older Superfly's are awesome bikes but the engineering/design of these new SL's is more refined.

    That's definitely true, the routing is far and away better on this than the last generation -- and it is much better than it was on the Jet9 that the Superfly is replacing for me. Time will tell if I still feel that way when it comes time to replace the internally routed cables, but hoping for longer intervals given the sealed nature of the system.

    Yes there is virtually no cable rub on the new bike, but I still protect it as a habit and also to prevent rub when leaning the bike on something or loading it in my car. With the front wheel off and laying sideways on the ground, the cables will scratch up the frame and since I often travel with my bike like that, the damage comes from transport, not design or riding. Also when bouncing around the trail, some rub does occasionally occur.

    Anyway these bike are friggin awesome and I've ridden every dry day. I would with my old bike anyway, but the new bike induces newbikeitis.

    Seems like there is still a big delay on this model. Any ideas on if/how one might find shops with one on the floor in my size? I'd be willing to consider travelling regionally (NE) to pick one up.

    You are going to have to call each local shop within Your driving distance or check the websites first and then call. Many of the websites have updated inventory by size....of course ordering from your local shop with a delay may allow some negotiating on price versus paying full retail to have it now IMO. However, I don't know the current back order wait period but I know there is probably no open stock.

    Good luck you'll love it
