We were planning on being in California to be able to ride more, but the Crazy part is that in Feb in the NW so far has been warmer than expected, and the trails are soo good here. All our new parts are rolling in as well , so I think we will wait till all our parts arrive, fresh new Norco bikes are built, and we are ready to roll. So yeah, we have been putting in hotlaps,  testing a few different Maxxis trail tires, Camelbak packs, etc. These new Camelbaks have a Lumbar bladder to lower your center to around the hips (best pack ever, in my opinion)Charger, and spark for ladies. Bryn's also been trying out the little hip pack version and likes that a lot too (flashflo) Fanny packs are back:).  http://shop.camelbak.com/packs/lumbar/l/163
