    The internal cabling routing makes the bike like so svelte.

    Looks like a 19", or not?

    Have you had any time to test it out on the trails, how is your first riding experience?

    It is 17.5, first ride was around the carpark outside work then straight out to local trails for thursday evening dirt crits, 20 minutes at max heartrate. It seems a little more responsive than the 2012 superfly 100 elite I was riding, though its a little hard to tell when you are riding a max effort.

    They have almost sold out here in Australia, managed to get the last 15.5" for a customer last monday. New stock arriving around 21st January, apparently.

    Not USA...

    The new SL frames are not made in the USA. I contacted Trek and they confirmed it...

    Me: Hi Trek, where are the 2013 Superfly 100 SL OCLV Mountain Carbon frames made, in your USA facility or overseas? My friends 12' SF100 Elite says it was made in the USA on the seattube. That would be great if the new ones were made in Waterloo

    Trek: Thanks for writing, but those are produced in Taiwan.

    just got the answer for someone that works at a trek shop.

    "I manage a store that sells trek. I was told that there have been some frame issues with some of the early production models and that they are working on the issue.
    I have had a customer waiting since November, the current date of availability is showing me n/a."

    Kind of the same response I've gotten from Trek in the Netherlands. I got a bike trip to Austria planned early June, kind of need the new bike by then. Trek told me the couldn't guarantee the delivery for June. My order was placed on 20 october, and original delivery should be March.

    Going to have a chat with my dealer this weekend, going to see what the options are. Maybe spent some money and update/overhaul my Sugar 292 and ride it for one more year, and order a SF100 for next year. Or have a second look at the GT Zaskar100, or maybe the C'dale Scalpel.

    My dealers ETA says Jan. 13 for XXL but n/a for all other sizes. I am not buying one right now but maybe some XXL riders might let us know if they take delivery in the next few weeks.

    Dumb and Dumber- So you're telling me there's a chance - YouTube

    In greater seriousness...
    It seems that many manufacturers suffer from delays or short supply... my guess is very conservative supply chain and inventory management practices in an unpredictable economy. I hear similar complaints from friends at specialized dealers, etc

    but that's mostly a guess.

    Just got back from my LBS. My bike has been postponed until 27 may. I'll be leaving for Austria on the 24th. My dealer will contact Trek this week and see what he can do.

    But I'm afraid I will have to cancel the bike. I think my best option will be to overhaul my Sugar and re-order the bike for the '14 model in September.

    I can't imagine there could be a serious structural issue with the bike, as some bikes have been shipped.

    Can't imagine them taking such a risk with their reputation.

    when I checked on mine last week I was also told May delivery. Dissapointing to have to wait so long for one but it is what it is as this point. Id rather get something they are happy to deliver than something rushed thru production to make a date.

    I'm still waiting on mine as well. I had checked with LBS about two or three weeks ago and the eta was sometime in February.

    If delivery is pushed back to May, I will be asking for a discount on what I paid for the SF or I will be asking for a refund and shopping for a different bike.

    I guess I should have added a smiley emoticon after my post.
    The scalpel weighs in at 10.601 Kilos, but that includes the reflectors.

    Is that with pedals or anything else? Or is that straight out of the box with no additions?

    Scalpel is a great bike, had it on my shortlist aswell, bikes were allmost equal. No major differences. Experience with C´dale/GT LBS vs. my Trek LBS made me choose for Trek.

    Still no word from my LBS, but if the date of may 27 does not change, I´ll cancel my order. I am not planning to shop around for another bike, got my mind set on a SF100. So i´ll get my Sugar ready for one more year and order a 2014 bike in September. I trust that they have the plant in Taiwan up and running by that time so that when I place an order in September/October the bike will be delivered in January.

    @BMiller, just to be sure, is that a Superfly 100 AL or a Superfly 100 SL (carbon model).

    I went with the scalpel because I sold my '12 SF 100 elite in late Novemeber and I was counting on an earlier ETA for a new SC 100. I really liked the SF 100 it fit me well and was a blast to ride and race. I also have a SF HT that I raced at Leadville, though I'm getting old so I wanted another FS ride.

    @J79 yes its a carbon model..give me a little credit I have been doing this 17 years.....have had the aluminum model for well over a month @Slim83 Yes thats right out of the box, with dork disc, non tubeless, a really long post, etc. We got 2 17.5"s in actually....none of our stores have received a 19" yet. Did get in a 15.5: inch also.

    Also there are no dates listed for estimated ETA if you ordered one up right now. So my guess is if the shop didn't do a preseason order for their high end stuff (like almost every bike manufacture asks for), or it wasn't ordered for your special order, you won't see them as open stock at trek later in the year...but thats just my opinion. Trek does have a few (six) of the 21" as open stock right now however.

    @Bmiller, sorry, no insult intended. Just wanted to be sure, wouldn't be the first mix up of the availability of the AL model and the carbon ones.

    Just wondering

    Hey Guys,

    It been a long time since Ive posted.

    I ordered back in October and last week when I went into the shop they said it would be April 1 delivery. I ordered a 17.5.

    Were these bikes ordered before that?(Oct) I originally had a January 3 delivery, then Feb 14th, Then March 15th and now April 1.

    My question is when were these ordered to have just arrived. FWIW I am located in Baltimore and my dealer is a very large Trek dealer.

    Thanks for the info,

    Gary

    Yep, that's what I'll do as well if my date gets pushed back any further. It's currently March. There's a new 2012 Trek Superfly 100 elite at another bike store they have marked down to $4600. I'm also going to ride a Santa Cruz Tallboy carbon today. Trek may have shot themselves in the foot.
