If you forget about lap times, cadence and heart rate, forget that others are even on the trail and just ride your own ride, you can be happy now.

Nah. I'm very goal oriented. Setting goals and achieving them is what makes me happy.

Locally this bike sells for $5,400 + 6% sales tax.

Assuming the bike is shipped from California and that I won't be charged sales tax as a result, I'd be saving hundreds.
I was under the impression the Specialized dealers couldn't ship their bikes.

It no longer matters because my local Specialized dealer is willing to match the price on that website.

Only three.

Hell, there's a local rider I know who owns NINETEEN bicycles.

It was this ad that sold me on it. I'm sure I'll be able to ride just as well when I get mine.

The current Park tools just have the 22mm thread, which is Campy, Shimano, and nearly every other commonly encountered crankset with threaded arms.

The old Park tool had 22mm on one side, and 23mm on the other for TA cranks. ;-)
