This is such a sweet bike...I am just wondering if they'll add bottle cage mounts on the full production model...seems like quite the oversight not to (in all photos I've seen of the bike so far there are no brazeons for bottle cage mounting).

So I've watched some of your videos on youtube.  A buddy and I are playing to skateboard in Australia.  close to 1500 miles.  Wondering if you could offer us some pointers!  We kayaked from Virginia to the gulf last year and my buddy biked across america the year before.  First time out of the country though!  stoked!

A new cross-cultural study of social network site (SNS) users in Japan (Facebook and Mixi) and the US (Facebook), shows that Japanese SNS users are more concerned about Internet privacy than American SNS users, and suggests that Americans’ lower sense of concern is due to a higher level of general trust in strangers.
