ABOUT THIS EPISODE:

The whole crew isn't present, but Nathan, Auk, and regular guest Brendan get a show going for you. Normal shop news starts the show with special Kona models on sale at the shop June 7th through June 18th - 12% off and no tax.  The new Santa Cruz Nomads are in stock - which leads to a big discussion of how to measure bottom bracket height, the guys discuss how Santa Cruz has very carefully not called the new Nomad an "enduro bike" which begs the question: is a long travel 29er coming? They continue on with a comparison of EWS to 24 hours of Le mans and downhill is like top fuel drag racing, why races should be on Sunday, and how Brendan's van build has shaped up.

The Path guys welcome all of your questions and encourage you to send them an email with the subject "Podcast Question" to podcast@thepathbikeshop.com

A Girl Who Rides Show Page

ABOUT THIS EPISODE

Andrea is joined by Chelsea Camarata, the founder of Kaden Apparel. Kaden Apparel is a new womens's specific cycling clothing company based in Vermont. Listen in to hear about the company, the Kickstarter, and get a great feel of the woman behind the products. 

ABOUT THE KADEN APPAREL FOUNDER

Kaden Apparel was founded in Burlington, Vermont, in 2013 by Chelsea Camarata. Chelsea’s passion for biking began many years earlier and she continues her active participation in the sport by getting out and riding as much as she can and continuously working to further the women’s mountain bike scene through outreach and women’s ride days. The idea for Kaden was born out of her frustration with the selection, or lack thereof, of women’s mountain bike clothing. The necessity for high-quality, ladies specific bike clothing, that is both functional and fashionable, was apparent.

Chelsea began prototyping and testing her hand-made garments with some old sewing machines, in her dining room. Eventually getting her designs to the level of quality she was looking for, she began working with an American manufacturing facility to produce the line. Kaden’s moisture wicking fabrics are specially designed to keep women riders dry for even the longest rides. Designed by riders, Kaden Apparel is dedicated to making the best clothing for women cyclists.

Who is Andrea? Click HERE to learn more.

ABOUT THIS EPISODE:

Matt sits down with the owner and founder of Wrenched Cycles, David Evans, to see how the first mobile repair service in Memphis came to be. This episode starts way back with a ton of history between Matt and David that paves the way for David to one day decide that if he was working on bikes, it was going to be for himself. From attending Barnetts, to building wheels and giving feedback at a startup e-bike company, to working through many bike shops in Memphis, to waiting table to get his newest business off the ground. David has a story and we were lucky enough to hear it.

Mtb Skills Network Podcast Show Page

ABOUT THIS EPISODE

In this episode, Griff explains why learning track stands is so helpful for riding tighter and steeper uphill switchbacks.

Track stands are sometimes considered just a bike trials-type balance maneuver, most often used when waiting the light to change and you want to show off. However, they’re actually a foundational mountain biking skill, appropriate for riders to learn who are at an intermediate-level or above.  Tight slow-speed turns become easier once you learn to track stand, as do the the more advanced skills of hopping and rocking.

We want to hear from you! If you have any questions, comments, or ideas for the next episode, contact us at ben@mountainbikeradio.com.

ABOUT THIS EPISODE

This week Matt and Andrea sit down without their full-faced compadre in order to get you a show. Everyone has new toys, not everyone likes the way we set them up. Tune in to hear one of the most tired shows for Matt in recent months and to hear the most dead air you have ever heard.
