Show #530 – November 28, 2020

Guests: Jan Heine; Abbas Navqi

There is always a lot of anticipation for the books, magazines, and bicycle components that come out of the prolific mind of Jan Heine.

The Winter edition of Bicycle Quarterly just rolled off the presses and his 4th book, The All-Road Bike Revolution has just been published.

In his foreword to the book, Ted King says” Jan has one of the most inquisitive and scientific minds towards the bicycle,” and today, Jan and I unpack some of his thoughts and ideas about a wide variety of topics.

Jan’s belief is that we should all be able to ride when, where, and what we want – comfortably, reliably, and fast!

Then, we review Wahoo’s ElemntRival GPS triathlon watch with product manager Abbas Naqvi.  If you swim and run, and even if you bike and don’t use a GPS computer, the many features of this watch might just make it the best holiday gift – for someone else OR for yourself – this gift giving season.

Show #374 – November 11, 2017

Guests: Brian Jenks; Eric Stobin

November 11th – Veteran’s Day – and auspiciously, this week, Brian and I have an extended conversation about our trip to Israel with the FIDF.

Joining 30 other Americans as well as wounded warriors, Israeli National Cycling Champion Roy Goldstein, and active duty soldiers, we rode our tandem from Eilat in the south of the country through the Negev Desert to the north ending in Jerusalem for several days.

Along the way, we toured air force and army bases, became immersed in the history of the country and the land, ate sumptuous Mediterranean foods, and fell in love with the people and the culture.

After our break, I also speak with Eric Stobin, National Sales Manager of Wahoo Fitness. From their original indoor trainer, the KickR, to their newest products – including heart rate monitors, computers, and the newest addition the Climb, Eric offers us a glimpse into the first of our holiday gift ideas.

Go get an adult beverage, settle back, and enjoy!
