Engineer Corner Show Page

ABOUT THE EPISODE

If you've ever seen the Lauf Forks around and wondered what is going on with the different design, this is your episode. Phil dives into the details about the design and how it functions. Never heard the terms underdamped, overdamped, and critically damped? Phil explains the terms and gives you some good information you can use in your next purchase or maybe just some terms you can throw around with your buddies after your next ride. Become a more informed armchair engineer and listen in now!

Trail Cast Show Page

ABOUT THE EPISODE

Episode 17 of Trail Cast is a huge episode! Sustainable Trails Coalition Board Member, David Simon, joins Drew to discuss several topics, including the goal of the STC and what the STC stands for. You’ll hear why the STC is important to mountain bikers, and what they want the mountain biking community to do about it.

This is a conversation that will certainly clue you into some of the real discussion going on behind the Sustainable Trails Coalition. If you’ve just been stuck reading social media and open letters against organizations, you’re going to want to listen in.

Drew and David also discuss several trail access issues, concerns, current status, as well as a variety of other topics, including ebikes, Marin County, and the National Environmental Policy Act.

If you or someone you know is in charge of trail projects or organizing work days for your group, Drew wants you to email him. Share your projects and when your work days are, and he'll share that information in future episodes.

If you have any questions, comments, or ideas for the next episode, contact us at info@mountainbikeradio.com.
