Get this: the Specialized Rep was at my LBS today and offered me a new 29er ot a 26er to go test ride at Bby mtn, but I had to decline :-( So sad. Man those look nice.
OK, yer right, I'll have to sign up for Vashon soon I think. Once signed up, then I'm committed! But be warned - I may find them addictive! Which means: many road trips. ;-) Are you going down the night before I assume? if so, you wanna split accoms?
Edit: what's Black Diamond like? and is Portland out at Lake Hagg? Where Hulaman used to be? If so, I may have to try that one too! Love that area (Forest Grove). Wicked brewpub there.
Also: not doing Vic sprint. Not interested in $105 for a sprint, not after P spent $270 for his 1/2. Ugh. I'm turning cheap. ;-)
