Haven't really been writing much lately, largely due to the fact that I haven't been doing much to write about. When I get my Rockhopper I'l be riding again, and when I get a good camera bag of some sort for the bike I'll be taking more photos... but for now, things are dead. I'll be stopping by the bike shop to check the status of my bike order in a few hours, so that's something to look forward to. I'll also (hopefully) be going shooting in the desert in the next couple of weeks, so there's something else to look forward to. I guess it is expected there will be a lull in action sometimes. --------------------

Nope, no 2004 Rockhopper Comp for me... it won't be available for another month. I will have to take the 2003, which is actually fine with me. The only downsides are the pedals and the fork, which will need a conversion kit to be 100mm. I can live with that. With any luck it will come in on Friday, so I may be able to ride Aliso with Josh.
