Lots of new ideas out there, hopefully most of them get past the prototype stage and make it to production. Thanks to Hurl at CRC, Sock Guy, Shimano XTR, Surly, Mission Workshop, Banjo Brothers, Dirt Rag, EWR, the Fireside Lounge, and a buncha others. Furthermore I'm glad Cheever didn't get any angrier than he did under two occasions. All is well.
The highlight was seeing people I don't get to see too often as well as meeting acquaintances face to face for the first time. There were a few late nights, just make sure your phone isn't alerting you every time I Twitter; that's a good idea any day of the year, really.
Next time make sure to check my camera settings, I was several stops underexposed on every photo. Shit.
Below are a few photo highlights. More here.
The Banjo Brothers in their Herb Tarlek get-up; they really pulled it off (make sure your belt matches your shoes):
I don't know how useful this would be for me, but I do like the functionality of this new White Industries crank with pedal quick release:
Eric Lobeck's Ride the Divide trail bike from this year:
Trevor got a new pair of socks. And the new Surly Troll:
Hurl and Bill Walton. Excellent.
And this guy wouldn't stop following me around the damn place; what happens in Vegas stays on YouTube, I guess:
More photos here. Enjoy them wisely.
