    Breaking away from Specialized a bit....

    and just ordered a Cannondale CAADX Tiagra through work.

    though, gonna have to standardize the drivetrain with my road bike.....
    ie, 32T cassette and MTB RD.... in case I want to sneak my Mavic Kysrium Elite on it.

    looking forward to non-technical singletrack (technical rides will require my hardtail) and some rail trail with friends whom do not like technical trails....

    When you upgrade your brake pads, and you will want to as soon as you try to stop the first time (and it doesn't get any better as the pads wear in) and let us know what pads you went with.
