With the Interbike trade show now well in the rearview mirror (and absolutely no signs it’ll ever return), the Sea Otter Classic has grown larger than ever, and whereas it was once primarily a mountain bike event, seemingly every major segment is now well represented. Road, mountain, and gravel? Big brands and small ones? Components, clothing, and accessories? You name it, it was here.

This third round of coverage (there will be at least two or three more, FYI) covers a broad range, including Ritchey’s gorgeous new Montebello steel audax frameset, stunning machined titanium and aluminum components from 5DEV, the latest in 3D-printed helmet technology, highlights of Mavic’s resurgent wheel collection, and much more. 

Only about 500 more images to sort through! Hope you like eye candy …
