Sea Otter Three

Chipps has a load of pictures from the Sea Otter pits and it’s going to take several stories to get to the bottom of them all. So, without further ado, here’s a random selection…

 

sea-otter-2009-622
That's a 'trilobe polygon' that is. 30mm axle, BB30 size bearings and an all-up weight of 790g for a triple. Triple or singlespeed and out this year.
sea-otter-2009-602
The crazy BB cups will actually fit a large socket spanner.
sea-otter-2009-591
Not just for fixie riders. The Chub geared hubs are out this year and the XC front is 160g. There'll be a 15/20mm version and a QR/15mm version.

What's this complicated suspension system on the Foes booth?
sea-otter-2009-542
It's a rear-suspension wheelchair with Fox shocks. How trick?
sea-otter-2009-521
Swobo's bike range continues to expand. Here's their geared or singlespeed, rim or disc braked cyclocross bike in a lovely dusky blue.
sea-otter-2009-512
Never be far from an open beer with the new Swobo saddle...
sea-otter-2009-491
OK, maybe it's not all work. Swobo's Tim Parr looms with a cooling beer.
sea-otter-2009-482
The push-me, pull-you Santa Cruz freak bike in all its glory. The rear fork is held rigid by a frame mounting that bolts to the bolt-on stem bit of the Boxxer crown.
sea-otter-2009-472
How pointlessly ace is this? There's a Hammerschmidt in there too, so it's a two speed, 8in travel bike with four BB shells...
sea-otter-2009-461
Seen on a Syndicate bike. Perhaps these coloured components aren't such a bad idea.
sea-otter-2009-442
Who wanted a closeup of one of these? Here you go. No immediate plans for a new Blur 4X, sorry.
sea-otter-2009-431
Here's a raw finished Ibis Tranny.
sea-otter-2009-422
Mmm... Jaffa.
sea-otter-2009-402
Rocky Mountain has put a load of work into producing two new 29er machines. Full suspension and hardtail. Like 'em?
sea-otter-2009-392
Now three big-wheelers in Rocky's range.

That’ll do for a minute. We’ll get on with editing down the rest of the 600 shots we have and there’ll be more to see daily.
