    It will be MINE!!! Today we got notification that my final student loan payment is about to be behind us. I jokingly suggested to DH that now is the perfect time to pull the trigger on "my bike." He informed me that he'd already put in an order at our LBS when he was in earlier last week. He wanted to wait and surprise me, but knew that he couldn't keep it secret any longer.

    Fah-reak-ing out!!!

    Awwww, what a nice surprise! What size did you decide on?

    I saw your photos from your race. You sure weren't kidding. Your Cdale looks way too small. Your Salsa is going to be a whole new world for you!!

    XS for the El Mar. I am smack dab on the middle of the recommended height chart for that. I could probably do a S, but would rather err a bit small and have room to wiggle. Seems like this bike runs large. Our LBS guy is only a few inches taller than I and is on a S Mamasita.

    Awesome!!!!!!!!!!! Good thing he 'fessed up -- it would have been pretty awkward had you ordered up a second one!

    Congrats!

    Not sure. My order is going in with the shop demo order. I'm thinking a few weeks, perhaps...?
