"I would be surprised if you did not have a Rep in your area. According to the CDE and Rep that was showing off the pump, the FDA approval came as a bit of a 'surprise', and they are NOT quite ready to actually promote it. In fact, the…"

Heya!

I've done some riding in your area -- Aliso. Meadows, Dripping Cave Cholla, Rockit. Good stuff! Being from the OC, are you an STR member? If not, you should check it out -- http://www.socaltrailriders.org. I'm known as 'shudder' there (I carry my Nikon with me a lot on my rides...). I've been on that board since early '07 when I waas racing 12 hour races. I've done a 24 hour, and a few XC races, but I'm not a fan of the short form.

I'm up in Calabasas, so most of my riding is in the Santa Monicas. Plenty of it, that's for sure.

Thanks for checking in!
