Yes!

When did you order it, if you recall? I ordered the same colorway last Wednesday so I'm behind you in the line.

I ordered the day it was released but hopefully it’s a big enough batch that you don’t have to wait as long.

Can't wait to see this teal frame built up. Check instagram every once in a while but haven't spotted one yet!

I think they’re just going to customers, like me, now.

Will share for sure. Might also start a thread if I remember to weigh all components.

Ready for some bike p*rn? I took a picture of Vance the owner of Cupertino Cycles with my new size 56 teal frame.

I can't figure out now how to insert the image directly (although I have done that in the past), but I posted it to Instagram. It's the most recent picture under my user name stendhal.ca (ignore the f-a-t one before it!)

I'll keep trying to insert directly -- I want to send this out now first so I do not lost the content

Now for the truly great part -- Vance weighed it. As you can see from the picture (sic), we left some of the foam covers on. Also, the thru axles were on. It looks like the bottom gravel guard (per rasyad, 55g) also was on. So I expected a high number. Vance weighed it: 2.12. I thought, "2.12 kg, gee that's high even with the thru axles." The scale, however, was in pounds. That works out to 961 grams. Even if the scale was off, and this is a #1 class shop, it'd have to be w-a-y off to produce a weighty result.

Current estimate of the final build (w/ size 35 tires and Easton EC90C 46-30 cranks) is a featherweight 7.456 kg = 16.44 pounds. Yowza!

I was in a hurry (shop was closing) so I did not have a chance to check something out -- Vance said that the frame is different in the sunlight, the highlights stand out or something (did not have a chance to test). Perhaps something like this (which I sprayed on the Ibis Hakka frame that will now be for sale cheap):
