A little bit about me, a little bit more about me, and I really hate changing tires/tubes. If you are following along in the RBR Chat, you’ll see that I have already corrected this, but boy was it frustrating! The other frustration is actually switching to clipless. I come clean as to why I haven’t and Brian schools me on getting set up.
Big show this week. BIG Show! I talk about the new bike, Brian helps with mechanical disc brakes and Mongoose releases a new bike that we do not hate. Welcome to Ride Bikes Radio. Starting off with stuff to add, or not, to your water bottle before moving on to new bike stuff and news.
Brian had a great customer service experience with Wahoo after his computer’s screen had some issues. Always nice to hear this kind of thing! We have a new chat room that is show specific. We think it’s pretty rad and hope you guys will give it a try! Click over to Flickapp.com to install the app on your mobile device. Once there, use the code ridebikesradio to get in and start chatting!
BIG week! Brian being basic after clocking serious miles this week (and number 3 in elevation) and me still amazed at how much you guys can ride! Playing the Strava Club home game is always fun. Besides that, we talked about a few other things:
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!
