    There is no escape from the Flat Gods. Don't even bother trying.

    Nope actually... as of 2008, they'd gained about 300,000 people. No idea what the financial collapse will do, but prior to that they were still growing pretty steadily.

    Given the prices my LBS charges for absolute pieces of trash, I'll take a BD Kestrel over a LBS Kestrel any day of the week. :lol:
