Wherein I Finally Meet the Twin Six Guys and Get a Really Cool Surprise

09.23.2008 | 9:53 pm

I’m working on my writeup of today’s Outdoor Expo excursion, but first I wanted to say that Kenny and I had dinner with Brent Gale and Ryan Carlson, the geniuses behind Twin Six.


Brent would let me photograph him only upon the condition that I put big black X’s over his eyes. Hey, I’m here to please.

And then, after dinner, Brent and Ryan sprung a great surprise on me: they’ve received a few prototype 2009 Fat Cyclist jerseys.

And they look awesome. Kenny likes his so much, in fact, that he never wears anything else.

Here he is, wearing it while he watches the hotel’s pay-per-view previews for the thousandth time.


And here he is, modeling the back of the jersey.


Or maybe he’s on the way to the bathroom. I guess we’ll never be sure.

There’s some surprise text behind the center pocket, too. You’ll just have to wait and see what it is, though, until the jerseys start shipping (which will be soon).

And now, I’m going to get back to writing about the Interbike Outdoor Expo, which I am pleased to announce will include the following photo:

    northwest bicyclist – yes, there will be. once all of the pre-orders are filled and twin six has taken care of any exchanges, there should be a few left over; those will be put up for sale early enough that you should be able to order them in time to get them by Christmas.

    That thing should have a flat panel television mounted on the handlebars.

    Ummm…question, what pose is Kenny displaying from the back. A sassy “here my backside now appreciate” it pose ?

    Brent and Ryan are the best!!

    Remember comfy shoes for the indoor events! Important

    Kenny drinks Coors in a CAN? C’mon man, you couldn’t get him a decent beer anywhere?

    “Oh, and I noticed that during my fifteen minutes of riding a ‘bent, I grew a full beard.”

    Hahahahahahaha. Now THAT is funny!!!

    Interesting bike. You’ll be riding one in Leadville next year I assume?

  22. Comment by co | 09.24.2008 | 11:44 pm

    Twin Six figured it out: early enough prototype == Kenny ad == major sales. maybe next time they’ll let Kenny model the design *before* the init order, eh?
    (Brad – you listening, re: rocket carb?)
