    They are in production with plans to fill orders by may and into june.

    that's one thing i don't like about SCB... they release info way too soon. it get's everyone's hopes up, generally to the point of over-hype, and some people are disappointed when the product finally drops. That's what my shop has see with both the Nomad 2 and Blur LT2. Both are excellent bikes no doubt but not up to some peoples hopes due to the long wait.

    Rode one at Northstar the Santa Cruz test day. I have an 09 V-10 and I can say they ride similar. I would call it jumpier/snapier.

    Just to confirm what others have said... I talked to the good folks at Santa Cruz Wednesday and they said that it will be June when it starts shipping.

    Yeah but look at how many bikes they change every year. At SCB they redesigned all the single pivots. Now they are doing phase two of all the VPP bikes. Then expect to see the single pivots, and so on and so forth. F it I'll wait for just about anything Joe engineers.

    They've been pretty easy to get for me as well. Everytime I've ordered it's been in my shop within 2 weeks max. Usual wait is just the shipping time of 3 days.
