I really wish I could have made it in time for this, but the drive from SJC sucked.

Are we calling Peter Sagan = Carl Sagan or was Carl really a big S fanboi?

I'm confused.

Don't spend enough time hear to keep up with references anymore..

tarckup at sea otter on Friday? Dirt/Road ride with coworkers and the Giant rep Friday morning and then eating at 5pm with Giant folks at their 'luau'.

Who else is there?

I'm still deciding between heading down tomorrow or Friday, depending on when sup needs the car. Are you just going Friday?

I have no industry contacts so it'd just be me: regular dude, of the general public, who's never been before. Is it worth taking a bike along?

They were Peter's bikes, that was a substitution i just made up. Don't feel bad!

First time for me as well. I'm just going Friday, as losing two full days of sales in the shop is not something we want to do.

You're in SJ/Willow Glen? Do you have a mtb? Or fat tire road thing?

I’ve got both: a 90s trek 720 with 35s and a honzo.
