    Order has been placed.

    Now I get to wait for for the next batch to be finished. April (ish) is a long time for my impaitient A$$.

    I'm so excited.

    I feel like a SISSY with a bag full of D!X.

    Did you end up going for the Rogue? After seeing your thread on using the Rogue as a trail bike, I ordered a bunch of new parts to lighten my Rogue. Hopefully, I can get it to the 35-36 lb ballpark. I also recently ordered a new 08 Moment frame - it should be here in a few days. I can't wait! Good luck on your new bike and build.

    I will reveal the decision when the frame is in my hand. 2 factors played a strong part in the decision.

    What kind of parts do you have on your trail Rogue? I've currently trying to lighten up my Rogue from a ski resort pig to a more trail-friendly configuration.

    Could the designers of these bikes ever imagined what riders might do with them? 5.5" fork on a 8" travel machine...sheesh!

    I really don't think that is fare to make us all wait. It is not our fault it won't be ready until April, don't punish us all. Hope it is the Rogue and I hope you freakin love it, sweet bike, big travel.
    I like to ride Bikes. This might be turning into an obsession, not sure?

    Definitely Hope. Since switching from Hayes and Magura, I've realized how much more feel / modulation I get with the Hope brakes. They are plenty strong as well! I have Mono Minis on my several bikes and love them!

    Yang. You like the Hopes over the strokers? Good to hear. Seems to be what all talk to say. The strokers are a lot cheaper but I've heard the Hopes are flawless. Worth the extra $$$.

    I've only spent limited ride time with Stokers on a friend's bike. So, I can't give you a full review. But, I've spent a lot of ride time with Hope Mono Minis as well as Mono M4's. The Hopes are awesome. They have a reputation for being a little finicky to set up. But, once you have them dialed, they are amazing. Definitely worth the $$$.
