The weird and wonderful of Sea Otter 2018

A beef truck, Danny Mac's carbon trials bike, Ti enduro cranks and much more

Another Sea Otter is in the books. We saw lots of interesting bikes and components at this year's show, including Ellsworth's redesigned Truth, a booth full of vintage GT mountain bikes and a new Maxxis tire designed by none other than downhill legend Greg Minnaar. 

In addition to these highlights, there were a number of other items that caught our eye either because they were stunning or because they left us scratching our heads. 

Take a scroll through this gallery for a look at some of the weird and wonderful things we saw at this year's Sea Otter. 

Josh has been riding and racing mountain bikes since 1998. Being stubborn, endurance racing was a natural fit. Josh bankrolled his two-wheeled addiction by wrenching at various bike shops across the US for 10 years and even tried his hand at frame building. These days Josh spends most of his time riding the trails around his home in Fort Collins, Colorado.
