That's what I was thinking about the SJ. My rockhopper looks amazing except on the chainstay (didn't put a sleeve on it) and I have at least a grand on it. I can't imagine how that SJ would look that way w/ only 150 miles.
I'll ride the s-works this coming weekend. Unfortunately, it means that I will have to buy a new bike at some point relatively soon based on the fact that it'd be impossible to go back to my RH after riding the s-works.
Thanks for the advice guys. Maybe I'll be able to find an SJ demo somewhere later in summer for under $1k.
