    Too good not to share. The Art Of The Mountain Bike: Otis Guy

    I'm an Otis Guy fan. Love his work and the way my 85 OG rides and I'm always on the look out for another one. Needless to say, this new addition is more than a little exciting for me. I'm eternally grateful and in SW's debt for making it happen and allowing me the opportunity to bring this gem back to light.
    I'm pretty much starting from scratch collecting parts (which shouldn't be too difficult), but it will truly be an enjoyable journey getting it back to 'show spec'.

    No Way.... Too big .... When you finish putting it together and realize it's too big for ya, maybe we can work out a deal.

    Ever since I saw your red Dirt drop OG on VRC I knew 2 things. 1 I will find an OG to ride someday, and 2 I will build a dirt drop Mtb. Half way there.

    Not sure why but your red OG has always been on my short list of top 3 favorite bikes here on VRC.

    Now you got the OG from The Art Of......

    Sweet!.... Don't stop, lets see it together. ....

    Refresh my memory, what year was the Art of MTB display put together?

    Sweet bike Eric- really unique. What are your plans for the spec? Are you sticking with what's in the catalog, which looks like Suntour with Scott/Pedersen brakes? Or period correct Shimano?

    I would guess he doesn't have a choice except to put it together the same way it was originally displayed. Too much provenance.

    Really nice find, Eric. Congratulations!

    It's funny to see the hite rite on backwards compared to how we normally see it on the Breezer.

    That Craig Mitchell bike is interesting. Whatever happened to it? What about the Paul Brown? Some very interesting bikes in that exhibit.

    Speaking of 'the art of' where the hell are the other pics of that carbon Ibis? That guy posted some dirty dirty teasers in the 'all things Ibis' thread and I don't recall seeing anymore of it....

    Very cool. Can't wait to see it next to your others.
    Beware the forty-year-old man on a twenty-year-old bike...He likely knows how to ride it.

    Wow!! Very nice indeed.
    Each bicycle owned exponentially increases the probability that none is working correctly.

    Compared to some of the other players in the show, pretty agressive geometry. 73/73 head/seat, 16 3/8 chainstay, 25 1/2 top tube....
    I like it......

    Cool frame! Now you need a neon candy cane striped lycra skin suit to match

    I thought you lived in CA,that looks like Spring in the Northeast, grey, overcast, foggy. You mean the sun doesn't always shine out there????
    This is a Pugs not some carbon wannabee pretzel wagon!!
