Sea Otter Diary – Day 2

Its Day 2 of Planet X USA’s 2012 Sea Otter Classic, Shiggy spent most of today on the road, driving the Planet X USA van through Oregon and Northern California, he called us just after 4pm to say he had arrived at Laguna Seca, checked in, and was in the process of marking our territory. He said the sun is out, and the venue looks amazing, and it has all the makings of being an epic show.


For us in Portland, it was a little different (it was raining for a start).

“I don’t care what you have to do, make sure the consignment gets to us before midday today” – Those were the first words I heard as I walked into the office this morning, which I gathered meant the very first production Planet X N2A and Exocet 2 frames to hit North America were still in transit. Not good news when they all need assembling and packing ready for us to leave first thing tomorrow morning for the biggest show on the bicycle industries calender.

However, it did the trick, as by 11.45am, we ripped into the delivery and got straight to work on checking out assembling the new models. 7 hours, 2 burritos, and 3 grande lattes later and we can safely say we pulled it off and are ready to go.

So in addition to the bikes Shiggy has, we will also be showing:

Planet X RT57

Planet X Exocet 2 (Guru Team Edition)

Planet X N2A

Guerciotti Lambeek

Guerciotti Scarponi

On-One Dirty Disco

And the Prototype On-One Fat Bike

We’ve loaded up our temporary 2nd van, and we’ll be leaving tomorrow morning, as soon as US Postal shows up with the samples of On-Ones brand new tires, so make sure you follow our twitter for on the road (starbucks stop) updates.

Unfortunately, this does mean there will be nobody in the office from tomorrow until Tuesday 24th, so any orders placed over the next few days will be dispatched as soon as we return. We will be trying to respond to all e-mails received, but please bear with us if you do not get a response straight away.

By the way, for those of you that think its an easy life being a “Brit abroad”, I do sometimes need reminding of the fact…

Join us tomorrow when we should be at the show all set up and ready for a weekend of bicycle inspired mayhem at North Americas premier bicycle show.
