    You have 3 days, 10 hours, and 21 minutes to figure it out. Then you can join us on Sunday morning!

    at first glance to my untrained eye that Yukon looks like a nice feature set for the $$

    Giant makee nice bikes (for themselves and others). They are the largest bike maker in the world and build frames for many of the top companies. Like I said in an earlier post, 3 companies in Taiwan, one of them being Giant, make somehting like 95% of the bike frame in the world.

    That sucks, but then again now you'll have plenty of time to do research on a new bike.

    That sucks, but it could have been much worse if you wrecked your shoulder.

    Oh man, sorry to hear that. At least I'm not the only on laid up now. Hope you have a speedy recovery.

    RE: sales. If you are ever up in the Boston area, Belmont Wheelworks in Belmont (duh) has an annex where they sell a lot of past seasons bikes that are brand new. It's a good way to move up a couple levels at the same price point.
    Whatever hits the fan will not be distributed evenly.
