The grounds at Laguna Seca were packed to the gills Saturday with people hoping to see the latest and greatest. We continued to roam and look for stuff that caught our eye…

Cedric

Cedric Gracia just got the new DVO suspension set up on his V10.

Cedric2

We caught him doing some initial “testing”.

Banshee1

Banshee has just prototyped a short travel 29er. Likely to be 110-115mm in its final configuration, Banshee’s Jon Hadfield is just beginning testing with the new platform.

Banshee2

Internal dropper post routing on the aluminum frame is a feature we should see making its way on to other Banshee models soon.

Sockguy

Sock Guy, in addition to making the awesome NSMB wool socks, has socks with unicorns, Britishisms, and phrases that might offend your mother.

Aaron Chase

Aaron Chase wins ugliest bike of the day. A full roll of zebra duct tape and the Cannondale still comes in under 24 pounds.

WIMB_Fairclough

Brendan Fairclough’s 210mm Scott Gambler may not be the best tool for the Sea Otter DH race tomorrow, but it is his primary World Cup rig.

WIMB_Fairclough2

Brendog’s helmet and knee brace from Troy Lee.

Dirtysixer2

Titanium, weird fork, 10″ rotor… yup.

DirtySixer

DirtySixer is a new outfit aimed at making big bikes for small people.

Hydro

Hydraulic road brakes are finally upon us. Will you make the switch?


Gonna need a huge bike. Now.

I saw a flick of thirty-six inch wheels riding up stairs. Big wheels do roll over bigger things.
