What kind of riding are you doing? What are the trails like near you or that you plan on riding?

Can you actually start finding bikes in shops now? I was looking for a Talon 1 back in December timeframe and it was like a ghost town in terms of bikes in all the shops I went to.

Is inventory starting to build up again?
