Gallery: the weird and wonderful from Sea Otter 2017

DH tricycles, kegs for bicycles and much more from this year's expo

It goes by many names: Sea Weasel, Aqua Ferret, Marine Marmot. Call it what you will, the Sea Otter Classic is the cycling industry's annual kick-off party. Companies show off their latest wares to the public while professional and amateur racers toe the line to test their early season fitness. 

This year we saw downhill trikes, kegs for bikes, some gorgeous retro-inspired mountain bikes and vintage models that formed the foundation for the mountain bikes we ride today. 

Take a scroll-stroll 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.
