As a prelude to all the new 2013 bikes we’ll see this week at the Global Press Launch, Specialized took the media and dealers to their SLC distribution center. They didn’t tell us how many bikes move through the center, but these photos show pallets of bikes and gear.

We also saw their counterfeit center and met the brand security manager who told us how Spesh monitors knockoffs. Over 4K listings have been shut down this year, to date. Their entire line is subject to counterfeiting.
