Sea Otter 2013: Randoms #2

April 22, 2013

We’re wading through a ton of regular product info for you from the Sea Otter, but here’s another collection of things that defy categorisation. Enjoy!

Mr Mirrorballhead works for MTBR. Say no more.

So who came out of retirement to win the XC race? Ex-MTB-world champ and Tour rider, Miguel Martinez, that's who!

Already out of date. The new Light and Motion will be the Seca 2000, with, you've guessed it, 2000 lumens.

You can rely on Specialized’s creative director, Robert Egger to have a flash new bike. Here’s his aero road tandem with a shaft-driven timing system for the two sets of cranks. Bonkers.

Better than a company car.

Super aero moulding

Integrated computer and aero bars


Team GT’s downhill racers were in full effect, with the Athertons and Marc Beaumont too. They’ve all been testing out a new prototype DH bike. It’s currently in aluminium tubing to allow for different configurations to be tried easily and cheaply, but expect the final model to be carbon. Are they playing with 27.5in too? Of course they are.

Factory ride. Spot the unbadged Stan's rims?

Mirror shades are back in, as shown by Giant's new pro enduro racer, Adam Craig.

That guy's not short. That bike is huge.

Looks in proportion, until you realise the wheel is 36in tall. And the rotors are 250mm, and the cranks 220mm.


Apparently it does good wheelies. We're not sure where the seatpost had gone.
