Dirt Demo Day 1
This is a fact: the Dirt Demo on day one had fewer people than you would see at a well-attended toonie race. Still had more tight shorts, though. And a hell of a lot more e-bikes. Even here, the e-bike demo zone was tucked away o'er the hill, out of sight. Security was checking passes on the way in. It seemed wrong to try to keep anybody out; more bodies would at least slow down all the tumbleweeds.
So the Wolftooth Components founders got bored or something and decided they wanted a bike brand of their own and Otso Cycles was born. We took a shine to the Voytek, which wears a lot of hats. There was a 21-lb fat bike version with a trail bike-like Q factor, but you can also run it 27-plus or as a 29er. And it has braze-ons everywhere, so you can carry lots of flasks and bottles and pumps and growlers and stuff - even a custom frame pack that bolts on (sorry, we didn't get a photo of it - we'll go back and get one tomorrow since there are only 12 booths to see).
