"For those of you only motivated by money, we have a special incentive..." Yes, folks, that's right: the company I currently work for has put everyone in engineering and IT on hourly pay until the product launch date (June 30), with time-and-a-half for anything over 60 hours in a given week. Translation: I'm now getting paid for the 12-hour days I'm putting in. They're obviously desperate to make their release date (since it's pretty obvious to even the casual observer that the product will not exactly get the kind of acceptance they're shooting for if they ship it looking anything like what it does now). I have a feeling that something will hit the fan after the product launch, however. Call it a hunch.
deekayen: Those toe-cages should be removable; I picked up a Trek 4500 last year, and it came standard with the toe cages, but three screws later, they were off. They're handy if you're doing a long run (lets you get a little power out of the pedal upswing), but they just seem to get in my way for regular riding.
