Now in his 80’s, I would venture to say that he’s still as sassy, interesting, and well informed as he was in the heyday of his frame building – which we will discuss. As you will hear, he’s built thousands of frames, written books and writes songs, and has a wickedly good sense of humor. He recalls his days as a boy in England as well as his reasons for riding a bicycle in the first place. He’ll remind of us terms we haven’t heard in years, give us his views on carbon, eBikes, and sew-up tires, and offer us his ideas on geometry and frame sizing. Also,...

From a ski and mountain bike background, Sabra and her sister Lea co-founded the organization – now with 17 chapters in 15 states – to give girls between the ages of 7 and 13 a most unique and focused experience through mountain biking. Then, Marc Sani from Bicycle Retailer and Industry News, just returned from Outdoor Retailer, the largest outdoor trade show in the U.S. and wrote an article about the effects being felt by all from the tariffs, freight costs, and more. We talk about all that plus take a look at the state of the industry from the uncertainty of the administration’s wishy-washy policies to...

When we talk about women in the bike industry, we don’t always see someone who is so broadly versed in a variety of business disciplines. Dorothy, who was born and raised in Colorado, was one of the first people to bring mountain bike racing to the U.S. in the form of NORBA – the national off road bicycling association – where she set up the first series of races. Then, she helped to bring mountain bike racing to the Olympics. Today, Dorothy is on the board of Little Bellas – which we’ll discuss – and is the sales and marketing manager for a new line of bicycles that will be introduced this...

This week, I caught up with someone who has such a different and unique perspective on becoming a pro that I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to share it with you. Sean McBride went over to Belgium by himself. He entered races, he made a few dollars, and he kept racing. Then he came home. And, he did that twice more – as in three’s a charm – only it wasn’t. What is charming is his perspective on these adventures and his advice to young riders who think that the only way to the top of the podium is through...

And, Giro Rosa. Two great events. And, with me to discuss them both is the “man-in-the-know Dan Wuori. We talk Chris Froome, whose anti-doping case was recently dropped by the UCI and WADA, some of the other teams who just might make waves at the Tour, and that new and very short 17th Stage. Then, it’s a conversation with BikeCad‘s Brent Curry. We talk about his couch-bike, treadmill-bike, and all about BikeCad – how it works, who uses it, and why it’s so popular. Share...

Chuck Marohn is Mr. Strong Towns and things have come a long way baby since I first spoke with him in back in 2013, he was in the throes of just fleshing out his Strong Towns objectives, much to the chagrin of other civil engineers who still believed that expanding our automobile infrastructure was still the right thing to do. As we fast forward the 5 years since we spoke then, there are “pockets” – his words – of folks who now see that perhaps investing back into our cities and towns in a local way – providing walking and biking options along...
