Airborne Flight Crew at the Sea Otter Classic

…any vendors and “who’s who” in the industy were at.  Friday those folks finally made it to the Sea Otter Festival, including my dear Pam Sayler from Kurt Kinetic (link.)   After the festival ended for the day I spent a couple hours catching up with her and then we all went to sushi down at the Wharf.    If I have a chance to make it back to Sea Otter next year, I will go a day early to fully experience Monterey.  The wharf alone…

New nuun Flavors and Packaging at Sea Otter Classic

As I started my Thursday off dragging through the Sea Otter venue trying to find a bathroom and coffee, yes in that order, I was stopped by Tall Tyler of Nuun.  A little hand slap and a what’s up “bro”.  Tyler then whispered in my ear that he had some new goods to show me at their booth when I had time.  Soon the California sun was beating down on me and the coffee was wearing off.  I needed hydrated and I knew where to find it…

Renovo Hardwood Bicycles at 2011 Sea Otter Classic

Often I come back from industry events like the 2011 Sea Otter Classic and people ask me what the coolest thing I saw was.  I try to highlight all of those things on Bike Shop Girl and keep the fluff to the rest of the internet.  One of these things were hardwood bicycles from Renovo Hardwood Bicycles.
