No... GREAT times.   What a rush.  The highs, the lows, the highs.    Out of my brain on NJ Transit!

45?  "Just a mere teenager"

I'm going full suspension. I told my wife that I've earned it being on a hard-tail for over 25 years, and that once I turn 45 I'll need something to "go downhill" on.
>A BMC or a Specialized...not sure which yet.

Go with the Specialized.   è bello e preciso 
 (it is beautiful and precise )

>It will be a bitter sweet transition for this loyal Cannondale rider.

Keep it as a backup bike.....

Yeah, or trick it out baby!    Bend them spokes!

>So, while my dual suspension won't be a Cannondale, I'll still have one in my quiver.

Quiver.... Nobody talks like that anymore.   I'm getting all misty-eyed.

I'm strictly a road bike kind of guy for now.  I did like following our Lance on the Leadville 100 a few weeks ago.
He won it riding in on a flat tire for the last 2 miles.    "That's power for ya!"  - Jimmy Cooper

Speaking of Lance, and keeping on topic, during the Tour de France, Nike / Livestrong had this Chalkbot that
would spray inspirational messages on the road that the Tour was going to follow.  It was all yellow chalk,
that didn't really hold up well.  But they had a website where you could enter your 10 digit messages.

I entered a few.  My first one was "Peace".   My second was "The Who"   They were going to send you
an email with the location of your message, and the approximate time it would be seen on television.

I received my email for the "Peace" message about 4 weeks after the TdF was over.   So, between the
fading yellow chalk and the untimely message announcements, they've got a few kinks to work out.   Nice
idea though.   Still waiting for an announcement about "The Who" message, and the others that followed.
