Specialized Museum

Visited yesterday morning before stage 3 of the Amgen ToC. Been wanting to go here for years and finally had a reason to.

Plus they gave me a freebie water bottle complete with cold water. Invited me to an after race party at the compound but I was too tired after watching the race and had an hours drive home.

That is cool, I am hoping to visit their sometime soon. I love seeing their older bikes and love seeing those old tension discs. The 90s was a crazy time for mountain bikes.

Did they engage in any frivolous lawsuits while you were there?
