    Why would being carried by REI lessen the brand? They pretty much only charge list price and carry top brands in other sports, like camping/hiking/kayaking.

    ImChris that would be great. The last ride I did I ate so many bananas I couldn't look at one for a month...because it was that or peanut butter pretzels. It was not a cheap ride, either!
