i was following the sea otter action on twitter (thanks to the return of Lyne of Podium Insight's live updates). i also checked out Gerard Vroomen's new mtb company's first offering, the O-1.0. then i finally put 2 and 2 together and remembered that sea otter has traditionally been a time when a lot of new mountain bike tech is released/revealed to the public. i haven't seen much of it yet (probably because i now get 99% of my cycling news from the cafe), other than this Shimano release of new gravity oriented goups, so i figured, why not start a post where we can dump whatever interesting new technology coming out this weekend? if you see anything, please post a link in the comment section so all the dirt-o-philes here at the cafe can be better informed. merci!
