After much hemming and hawing here about bicycle suggestions and finally realizing that bicycle suspension technology has caught up to my size, I placed an order.
Sadly, there were problems with that order, things got delayed, other options were not readily available at that shop, etc. So a friend with a different shop stepped up and offered me a similar deal with a much quicker receipt date and I finalized an order last night.
July 3rd, not only will I leave my current job which is draining the life out of me, but I will also take receipt of a Specialized Stumpjumper FSR Comp EVO. Barring extraterrestrial attack or zombie apocalypse, I will leave early that day and go get it dirty before taking it home.
