On the Mountain Bike side of things I got the word from Marin that I will be getting a 09 Team Marin Scandium Hardtail as a replacement for my broken 08 Indian Fire Trail. I could have gotten another 08 frame identical to the one that I had (and loved) but I decided to pay a little and get a 09 upgrade. The frame is about a 1/2 pound lighter and slightly longer giving it a even more racier feel. It shipped yesterday so I'm hoping to get it in middle of next week and get some time on it before my vacation is over.
Tomorrow I'm heading out for a early morning group road ride before spending the rest of the day with my parent's celebrating my dad's 50th birthday. Later.
