Crank Bros started the the Sea Otter weekend off with a lunch and a presentation.
First off was a new book by photographers Sven Martin and Gary Perkin, detailing a year’s worth of competition. There are no captions, just stories by the resulting World Champions. Add it to the coffee table book shopping list.
Next up was the big story, the 2011 new Crank Bros stuff. Redesigned pedals (with full bearings on the mid to high end ones), rigid seatposts, stems and handlebars, along with a very unified look to the ranges.
Products come in number ranges. So ‘1’ is entry-level, then 2, 3 and finally ’11’ which is the top end groupset.
