Finally able to get Brian back! Besides catching up and discussing goals and riding bikes, like we like to do, we also make a pass through the Strava Club. Besides that stuff, a little talk about riding with strangers, Wahoo cycling computers vs. using the phone. You can click this link for Wahoo refurbed! The biggest take away, I think, is having a bunch of routes you can pick from to keep you on the pedals!
I am in the process of getting some RBR branded stuff ready for you guys. Stickers, for sure, are coming very very soon! More as they become available, keep an eye on the socials and here for details!
Besides that, I am suffering from N+1 so bad right now it is not even funny. Go ahead and check out the latest bike that I covet and will probably have in my stable before the end of the year. I know it’s not from an LBS, but it fits in my budget and in what I am trying to do with it. What else do you recommend that does not cost $1K or more? Comments are open! Go nuts!
Finally, a pass thru the Strava Club and a little beer talk. Play along with the home game via the Untappd app.
Your patience is appreciated. I know you guys like this show. Hell, I like this show. Life gets in the way sometimes and everyone just runs out of time. That said, like I said, I really like this show and will be trying my damnedest to keep up making 2 new shows a month. Who’s with me?!?!
A quick pass through the Strava Club and beer as you expect, plus a minor detour into a bottle of wine; a 1979 Opus One. It was amazing and I acquired it upon the passing of my grandparents. You can read more about that on my blog.
And do not forget about White Roof Radio. If you like a good car show, I think this one is pretty amazing. If you like MINI Coopers, you get a double bonus because it’s all we really talk about it. And, that show makes this one happen, so thanks to them!
I have made some changes to the site. Nothing earth shattering, but when you see it, it’s not just you. Comments are open BTW!
First show of 2019 and we are talking about folding bicycles, a kick ass LBS experience, the Specialized recall and electric bikes. Besides all of that, a few listener shout-outs and we are looking for some specific feedback to start the new year.
Specialized Recall – Look for the post for January 9th and it is affecting a few different models.
Ok, so, how did you find out about Ride Bikes Radio? Did you come from White Roof Radio or find us another way? And, with Episode 50 coming up soon, what do you guys think about a live show? Either Facebook Live or something else like that? Comments are open below, time to sound off!
For the last show of 2018 (probably), we manage a little extra show for you this week! Brian lays down the knowledge about all things bicycle when it comes to my bike, bike history and even with Performance Bicycle. Also, we spend some time talking about Brian’s job, which sounds really cool. If you want to hear more, check out the GHT Overland Podcast where he was recently a guest. Very cool! Oh, and check out what happens when you take a Walmart MTB in the dirt over at Seth’s Bike Hacks YouTube channel
We hope everyone has a fantastic holiday season! We will talk to you again in 2019! Happy riding!
A few minutes of me talking about the new bike and how awesome it is! You can read more about it at specialized.com. The way it handles, the way it feels, how comfortable it is. Oh, and did I mention it’s FAST!?!?! And it’s loud, but I’m coming to terms with it.
Stick around for Episode 46 when Brian and I take a deeper look at this bike and I’m able to ask questions. Plus beer!
A quick reminder that db is truly a spaz and sometimes forgets to post these to the website for far too long. All the more reason that you should subscribe in your favorite podcast application!
For those of you that aren’t playing the home game, I did, in fact, have 2 bicycles stolen out of my garage. I tell the story plus show you a couple that are in contention for my new daily driver. They both tick the budget box and 1 ticks all the boxes!
Excuse the extra background noise. Brian’s normal mic was still in a box. Oh, yea, we get Brian this week, fresh from his move to North Bend, Washington. He catches us up on the move, what he gets to ride and him doing some paying forward. Plus, you guys killin’ it in the Strava Club!
Hoping to get Danyelle back on soon for a full update on her triathon experience. Spoiler alert: She didn’t drown! And we talk a little bit about beer, like we like to do.
Joined by listener Danyelle from Canada this week as a special treat. We have a great conversation talking about upgrades, how cool it is to work in a bike shop and how much we both dislike the smell of pot. Finally, what not to do when drinking, including not signing up for a triathlon!
So, all in all, a pretty rounded show. If you are wondering what else she listens to, Danyelle really likes the Trainer Road Podcast for lots of great information and tips.
I did notice a bunch of you last week caught the show over on Facebook because I didn’t get it into your feed correctly. In case that is your default, remember, the hot tip is to subscribe on your mobile computer device that way you get the show automatically!
