    either way, if someone says they will call, they should contact you somehow - even if it's just an update of "we're still looking into this".

    What's with all the Specialized stuff lately? For a brand I don't much care for, I sure am liking some of them lately.
    I'm gonna still hate Spec for Roubaix-gate. Just got rid of the only Specialized bit on the Lemon - Body Geometry Rival saddle. Rival, hmmm ... were they or Sram first to have Rival bike stuff? Someone should be getting sued, dammit!

    Sure seems that way. I like to think of it as diplomacy, but I am sure an outside observer would call my diplomacy the state of whippage.
