Bonus Friday Video You Absolutely Must Watch

09.9.2016 | 2:05 pm

So, Specialized just released a couple of new bikes today: the new Roubaix and Ruby

They look like really nice bikes. But I really want you to watch the introduction video about these nice new bikes not because the bikes are nice and new, but for a completely different reason.

Oh, just watch the video:

Didja notice anything? Such as this young woman, wearing a surprisingly familiar-looking kit:

Yep, that’s my niece Lindsey, making both the Specialized Ruby and the FatCyclist women’s kit (available now!) look great.

Or this young man:

Yes, that’s Ben, Lindsey’s husband, with his game face on.

Or, in the final shot, this:

Ben in the red, Lindsey in the…well, I think you can find her.

Congratulations to Lindsey and Ben for looking awesome and to Specialized for some really exciting new bikes.

And a big “thanks!” to The Noodleator for texting me, asking if I happen to know anyone who lives in the SLC area, rides, and is very good looking who would like to be in a Specialized photo shoot.

    Everytime I look at my offspring and assorted nieces and nephews I’m amazed at how they got so good looking.

    Congratulations. This is a phenomenally well done video. Ben and Lindsey fit right in. It kinda makes me want to get some tattoos.

    You realize it’s super mean to have left the Leadville story hang over the weekend with you yelling at your wife, right?

    Woah Fattie! That is awesome!! I was so excited to see them in the video (I didn’t look down the post until after I watched, so it was a very good surprise)!

    Man, that kit does look good… you got me the gig, so the least I could do was sport your swag!
