Show #256 – July 25, 2015

Encore Presentation: Engineers Andy Ruina & Jim Papdopoulis; Custom Frame Builder Mark Nobilette

For those of you who are newer to the Outspoken Cyclist or who just like to be reminded of great conversations, today’s show is an encore presentation from April 30, 2011. The guests, engineers Andy Ruina and Jim Papdopoulis and frame builder Mark Nobilette, offered up two of my favorite interviews.

I am off this week recovering from my regenerative stem cell therapy procedure we spoke about with Dr. Roger Kruse back in June. All is well and I will be back next week with a brand new episode of the show.

Enjoy the conversation! Here was the original information about the show:

Today’s first guests are a pair of researchers from Cornell University, who have made some recent discoveries about the self-stability of bicycles. In the process Andy Ruina and Jim Papadopoulos have poked holes in a couple of long-held beliefs about what makes bicycles balance as they do. Get your geek on and hear what they have to say.

After the news and calendar, Diane chats with one of the world’s foremost framebuilders, Mark Nobilette, about his past and present in the realm of steel bike frames.
