I will not speculate regarding dates - all I know is that Xray is working their butts off in finalizing everything, like prices & partnumbers... etc. It will be ready when they are ready...

That's cool..just someone had mentioned that they had received an email indicating that an announcement would be made by the 17th.

I'm kind of up in the air myself...I want one of these badly, but our local club races every other weekend until mid September. If it's not going to be on the shelves for another month or so, then I'll probably have to hold off until next year...hard to justify that much $$$ for just a couple of race days...
