    Yeah dude, mountain dew is the stuff! i didn't know that you guys didn't have access to it in the UK. That's a shame!

    Here's the latest on the Sea Otter, and a note about updates:

    http://www.gregridestrails.com/2010/...1-jet-lag.html

    I a short thread on a couple of bike forums saying that I was going to be posting regular updates over the course of Sea Otter, but it occurred to me that me posting a link on each of those forums every time I update is not the fastest way for you all to get information.

    Rather, if you want to keep up with my as I experience Sea Otter and post oodles of info, your best bet would be to use one of the subscription options on top of the right side bar. There is an option to subscribe with an RSS feed reader, with email, and as a blogger.com follower. The email option is currently a straight feed from my blog, meaning you will get an email every time I post a blog. Soon I want to have an option available for you to subscribe to a weekly email newsletter, but for now this is what we're working with!

    yea,

    I was hoping to see the 36 Rc2 180 Talas have settings at 180 and 160 rather than 180-140?

    Worse yet is the 136 160 Talas going from 160 to 120?

    Given the new Santa Cruz Nomad and Mojo HD are designed for 160 and 180 these new fork settings do not make sense to me?

    What say you?

    Why 180 and 160? Your geo wouldn't change enough to really help on a climb, a 40mm drop you get that front end pulled down and still have 140mm of travel which is enough to handle most techy climbing out there.

    No idea why Nomad or Mojo matter.

    I'll be trying to get in as much gear testing as possible tomorrow. There is so much stuff out there, I want to do it all at the same time, but it's just not possible! Again, stay tuned, subscribe, and watch for a bunch more info to come!

    There are a couple new posts up, including this one with a ton of photos taken during a quick tour of the booths:

    I'm planning on dedicating most of tomorrow to stopping by the last booths that I haven't hit, and doing quick demo rides on bikes from other companies. It's all going way too fast!
