anyone know when the 'officical' end date fot the old (yellow) colors was..??

i ordered (yellow) in july, had a build date of july 09.. bike is on a boat as we speak...

dealer says there is a 'small chance' it may arrive in the new colors...

i was lead to believe the factory was going on holidays (shutting down) for August, and the new colors would start when the factory started up again in sept...obviously that aint correct...

anyone got any ideas/knowledge..?

( i want yellow!!!)

Thanks...

This is going to be a tough choice. Both look great.

Pictures just don't do this color justice. It's so much better in person!

Usually new (next) year model bikes have built dates starting in August.
Hopefully you get what you want.

Obviously it was earlier than that, bikes already on the floor in CO (as in Colorado, USA) and its only Aug 16th (today, unsure when pics were taken), figure at least a month (prob more) to have bikes crated, cargoboat shipped, passing customs, truckshipped and uncrated.

No vivid. Straight AV f5.6 from a 20D. It's not a dark orange but also not a really bright orange. It's hard to describe.

Tires are Michelin Anakee.

That bike would look better with blue lettering instead of the orange. IMHO.

Hey if anyone wants trade their white for my metallic matte grey, just let me know!!


Oh, and I'm gonna go out on a limb here and predict that the white outsells the orange 5 to 1.

White!White!White! Orange looks too much like a katoom! I too think the white will outsell the yellow.
