I've gotta admit I was on the fence about the first generation CRB, what with that freakish top tube, but now that they not only did away with that but added the removable derailleur hanger and cable guides, I WANT ONE!!!!!

Look out, Surly!
Looks like it's not available til Feb? (nm)D_man

My wife actually appreciated what you said..... made me look a little less crazy, so that should help come February. Thanks and happy riding/bike-collecting!
