Went to a local shop in Okinawa and fell in love with a Cannondale Caffeine 29 and went back to buy it. I did not notice that hanging behind it on the wall was a Specialized Rockhopper that I ended up loving even more. The specs are a little different on the Japan model from the US, most notable being a RockShox Tora and Avid Juicy 3 brakes, and Shimano SLX rear derailleur.

I was currently riding a Giant XTC-850 entry level hardtail and while I like it, it felt small. I haven't had the opportunity to hit the trails yet and I'll do a little confidence riding around the block in the field by my office for a couple days to learn the bike before I go try to break some bones with it.
