Oh c’mon – like you guys had anything else on your mind this week.
That’s right. It’s time for Sea Otter 2016.
Now go drool over the newest latest and greatest products, gasp at the mad skillz of racers from all over the world and then get distracted by the shiny things again. (It’s basically impossible to NOT get distracted by the shiny things, after all. That’s kind of the point.)
If you’re racing, good luck!
If you’re trying to not buy anything, good luck!
If you’ve forgotten where you parked …
there isn’t enough luck in the world.
And I will see you next year. (Yeah, I’ll be cooped up in the shop all weekend … but be sure to swing by the ASJ booth #760 to say hello to m’homies!)
Fat Tire Tuesday columnist Sarah Hansing has been slinging wrenches as a pro bike mechanic for 15 years (with the exception of a one year stint working for Trek Bicycles in Wisconsin.) Epicenter Cycling scooped her up as their lead mechanic and the shop’s crew plans to keep her forever. Sarah loves riding singletrack, wrenching on bikes, and hanging out with her jerk-face but adorable cat Harlan. (Who is a jerk.)
