“Co-founders Frank Yohannan and Lou Rudolph hosted the inaugural Laguna Seca Challenge on April 6 & 7, 1991. There was a total of 350 athletes and 150 spectators. Today the event hosts over 9,600 athletes and 72,500 fans. In 1993 the event was renamed the Sea Otter Classic and is now universally regarded as the world’s premier cycling festival.” – Sea Otter Classic
The Sea Otter Classic also hosts the world’s largest consumer bike exposition in North America. The Expo holds hundreds of vendors who display new products, distribute free samples, and offer great bargains. The four-day, action-packed festival includes racing across a variety of disciplines, non-competitive rides, bike demos and much more.

“Remot is born out of the team behind legendary titanium and triathlon brands in Chattanooga, Tennessee. After over 30 years of experience designing performance road, triathlon, and mountain bikes, we felt like it was time to blaze a new trail.” – Remot Bikes
With that said, Remot Bikes appeared virtually unannounced with zero fanfare or fuss at Sea Otter 2019 with the “Boundary” Gravel Bike, the “Baseline” Road Bike and the “Cinder GX 29”, a full-suspension 29’er. All three bikes are carbon, and all three are shipped directly to your doorstep with a simple setup process. The company also offers a 30-day return policy if you aren’t satisfied.
