My second post, yesterday I posted "accidentally bought a womans bike" for anyone who read it.
I took it back and upgraded.
I purchased a K2 sidewinder fs for 349 bucks.
Problem is I can find almost nothing on it on the web including the k2 website. WTF!
Anyone know what this is or what kind of deal I got.

Michael M. from K2 customer support replied: "This is a bike that we make special for Sportmart / Garts. It is not part of our regular line so it is not in any catalogs."
