    Hi, first post. I got mine today from my LBS, ordered it 6 weeks ago. Swapped my Thompson seat post, set tires tubeless, candy 3 pedals, water cage (RXL) and sitting nicely at 24.3 lbs.

    Can anyone confirm the chain model used in your Superfly 100 elite SL? I had to replace mine today, because it was causing slip, due to a damaged link. Got it on warranty though. Never got the model on the stock one. Thanks

    lose the shimano chain

    I forgot about shimano chains a long time ago...in my experience they are sub-par compared to SRAM chains. A SRAM 1051 is inexpensive and they perform very well. XT cassettes are quite good though.

    Nope, sorry. Here in MN we are still riding studded and fat tires only. It will be at least a month before it hits gravel and probably 6 weeks before it hits dirt.

    I can tell you that it looks beautiful and it is really light!

    I rode one at the SE Bike Expo on Sunday. Insanely light, very stiff. VERY nice!

    Pics of the Pro SL? I have an Elite SL on order, hope to get it within a month. Meanwhile, it would be good to see some pics of anyone's SL.

    Man there is a lot of back and forth going on in this thread. The 2013 Superfly 100 SL frames are a completely new design from the ground up. This frame is unlike any of the previous years models. I do not think that previous years issues have pushed through into the 2013 models. I do know Trek has had a hard time getting the bikes this year and availability has suffered because of it.

    Unfortunately as with all mass produced products there are going to be lemons every so often. That is the nature of the beast. Please do not take this as an excuse to any of the people who have had problems but this is why Trek offers the warranty that they do and always have. Any of the broken frames I have seen have been taken care of in a timely fashion. Yes you will have some time without a bike but I find comfort in knowing if my big investment ever breaks I can get it replaced.

    I have had the chance to demo the 2013 Trek Superfly 100 SL Elite and the bike is AMAZING. So light and stiff yet the suspension is very fluid. Had the availability been better and had I had the extra cash handy I would have totally bought this bike. As is stands I liked it so much that I bought the 2013 Superfly 100 AL Pro. I plan on riding this bike until I can save up to buy the carbon version over the next year or two.

    SL Elite sighting!

    I believe it was a medium SL Elite at the Bikeline in Newark, DE. The only reason why I am not sure is because I looked at it for 15 seconds before the salesman brought out my SuperFly 100 Elite SL.

    ^^ you mean 3/11/13?

    11/3/13 seems like a long ass time to wait, maybe by then you can get a 2014 version.

    Haha me too... but guess what picked it up today!!!

    I picked it up today , 9.7Kg for the 17.5, looks a amazing, changing some things on it tomorrow though, XTR shadow plus rear mech, RXL -17 degree stem and a RXL seat post. Then the wheel set, either Stans race golds(weight limit isn't a issue, I way 60KG the limit is 77...) or FRM Urano... that should all drop about 500 grams total.
