I can confirm that I had the same issue (well sort of). I too ordered a Ultralight frameset from my LBS (see thread above). I received a call yesterday from the owner of the LBS. He informed me that my delivery was being pushed back (no updated ETA). He told me that Spesh advised him that it was determined that the UL framesets had some of the following issues: (i) were painted with the heavier paint option, and thus not UL; and (ii) regular framesets were listed as UL, but really aren't. These issues stem from the factory.queloque67 wrote: ↑Fri Mar 16, 2018 8:52 pmTurns out that wasn't the Ultralight. Bike shop has to order the correct one. Specialized said the Ultralight is the one with the grayish white text for the logo.
Not quite sure where mine fell in that spectrum, but looks like I have to wait a bit longer - with no ETA like I said.
As of the time I am writing this thread, Tuesday, March 20, 2018 at 9:45 am EST, Spesh still does not have the UL disc frameset listed on their website. It has also been removed since Friday, March 16, 2018. I called Spesh in the morning on the 16th to inquire the reason for the removal and would not get an answer from the operator. All they asked was whether I had ordered one. I gave them my cell number and the name of the shop where I ordered the frameset - I then got the call from the LBS later that same day (summary of that call is above) - weird. More waiting for this much anticipated frame, I guess....
Well...sorry for the long winded thread, but queloque67 perhaps that explains your frameset issue as well?
queloque67 - would love to know what you have been told. Also, please upload a pic of you new UL frameset once received and also pics of the final build. Would love to see the final masterpiece. I will do the same for my 61 cm UL, along with weights, SKU and final build.
One last thought, I have heard that the frameset will come with two (2) sets of thru axles. The first set is the typical Spesh racketing thru axle with lever. The second set is the straight thru axle with no lever, but must be removed with a 5mm allen wrench. I believe the thru axle set with the lever is supposed to be lighter (I know, kinda defies logic), then the straight thru axle without the lever. I will be sure to confirm this on this thread for the other viewers.
Cheers and keep ridin'.
