I will be ordering one of these within a week or so. The bike store was not sure what color the 2012 would be. I have seen black with red lettering online but they will also be offering 3 different choices. $3400 for a ti, $1500 for a regular and $1100 for a less expensive model-that's what the NLBS told me. They said it will arrive in the fall and I plan to not only ride it in snow but on the sandy trails in the state land around here. If anyone has any more info about the 2012 model let me know.
