That's right, the HEAD R&D Engineer. Got my Slayer a week or so back and becided to call my inside rep to tell him I love it. Said to also tell him to tell D'Arcy when he sees him around. I hear "Hold on a sec.....RING, RING, Hello this is D'Arcy" Needless to say we shot the ***** for about 20 minutes. What a cool dude, he told me everything that was going on around Rocky and BC. Anyways, talk about a small company, try to call Specialized and get thru to the head of R&D on 2 rings. Ain't gonna happen. Now I love my Rocky's even more.
