    Mine is currently sequestered in savings. I'll probably spend it on brazing gear, as a followup to a recent framebuilding class at United Bicycle Institute... this probably won't occur until sometime next year, however. If that doesn't work out for whatever reason, a tikit would be the most likely alternative.

    I`m definitely using mine to stimulate the economy. It will pay for a good chunk of our church wedding next month- in Guadalajara. Think President Calderon will thank me for the economic stimulous?

    Stimulus

    Still (aughhhhh) waiting.
    But it's already spent.
    Polar CS100 for the Moto CF
    2 more pairs of cycling shorts from aerotech designs
    the Zebra shirt from aerotech designs
    full set of float bags for the creek boat(kayak)
    pair of hydroskin shorts for the lake boat(kayak)
    Gas to get anywhere with either of the kayaks
    Fuel filter change and injector clean (needed to keep the warrenty)
    Wonder if next year (should they have this)I should claim the critters as children.

    I'm told mine likely won't show up until July.

    BTW this isn't a rebate or free money, W and Congress made a cash advance withdrawal on the our collective (taxpayers )credit card that we will have to pay back with interest.
