Really? I have been reading their blog religiously for BD news and don't remember that at all. At any rate, I'll probably just stick with V for now and see how it goes. I'm still waiting for the LBS advice. Unfortunately they are less than local -- about 5 hours away -- so I won't get a chance to bring it to them for quite some time...

I went for my first ride today.. just around town a bit with only a front brake and only a rear derailer. The handling sure takes some getting used to (quick swerves are a bit less quick than I'm used to). Hopping up onto a curb is also a new challenge!
