Show #287 – February 27, 2016
Guests: U-Bikes Doug Emerson; Professional Bike Fitter Happy Freedman
I’m off to the 2016 North American Handmade Show this weekend; but, not before Tim and I produced a great show for you this week.
First up is bike owner extraordinaire Doug Emerson from University Bikes in Boulder, Colorado. He knew bicycles were his destiny from the time he was in high school and he’s never looked back since then.
His philosophy about his store, those who work with him, and those he serves is an example to us all!
Oh, and did I tell you that he realized a 30+ year dream of building a velodrome in his area? Yes, he did!
After a break and the news, we take off for the east coast to speak with Happy Freedman. Happy started out in bicycle retail and started bike fitting way back when. Today, he works at the Hospital for Special Surgery where his skills and knowledge are coupled with the expertise of great specialists in many fields as well as cutting edge technology and equipment to offer a wide range of solutions for many cycling problems.
Happy with explain his work and give us some basic tips onnot only why you might not be comfortable on your bike but also what to do about it.
