Looks like bikes are making into the US. Last I heard mine was at the port in California. Fingers crossed!!!

Nice. Mine's been given a date of Jan 11th. Apparently major holdups at the Sydney port are slowing everything down for Australia.

Well makes sense they didn't send the AL bikes to be reviewed since they had the carbon version coming. Looks sweet and price is on point. Still going for the AL version tho, if those ever get in stock in EU.

Carbon price seems pretty great as well considering some of the slight upgrade in spec along with the carbon front triangle (compared to XR). Most companies tend to have a much bigger gap between their AL and Carbon offerings.

Yeah the carbon is super tempting. I think I'm gonna stick with the XR though, simply because I don't wanna wait any longer and I like the look of the coil.

Well it made it off the ship and thru customs. But it’s sitting in a warehouse, along with all the other sold bikes. As of now no timeline on when it might ship out. Fortunately I have a bike to ride. My Surly ICT and we got some snow. That’s been fun!

Update: be here Tuesday of next week!!

Picked up my bike yesterday and rode it on a snowy single track trail. It was fun but not the best conditions or the best trail for that bike. Going to Bentonville, Arkansas in a couple weeks. I’ll do some downhill runs and pump tracks. It’s gonna be a fun bike to ride for sure!

Got my 2021 alpine trail 7, its a bit heavier than the 2020 alpine trail due to the 12 speed group.

I felt the 2021 pedals better due to the steeper seat tube angle.

anynone knows the max seatpost insertion on the L and XL?

I cannot wait to get even a parking lot ride on one. I fairly confident this is going to be my new bike come spring.
