Good luck tomorrow!

I'm looking at the Specialized 'Rockhopper' 29'er. Hardtail w. disc b's. Want to try some XC events next year and, people say pop for FS, flat bar and such for XC...but, I've got a short budget for now. The M4 frame on the Rockhopper should get me going. I like the triple for now...1x9, SS? Maybe. David W. says his SS MTB is really cool. Choices, choices.

Tomm. should be fun...again. Can't miss up there for a good time.
