I found my next new mountain bike yesterday when the Specialized dealer book for 07 landed. They have an original Stumpjumper replica model in limited quantities that's very cool with the original geometry, Tange tubing, and four finger motorcycle brake levers. This bike is definetly on my Christmas wish list.
Today is still up in the air for riding as I baby my left knee. The Green Circle on the mountain bike is more inviting for me this week vs. the Tuesday night road ride. If I ride with the road group, I'll push harder than I want to with my knee. This morning the new roof rack gets attached to the new car. Finally, something that will get 30+ mpg on the highway. The long road trips to bike races won't hurt quite as much for the remainder of the season at the gas pump.
