Who would’ve thought that we could spend 30 minutes discussing chocolate milk? Well, we didn’t spend the entire time on chocolate milk….Kelli clarified some information from the last episode on homemade mayo and we also chatted a little about coffee. But, listen in to get information on Kelli’s take of a, dare we say healthy, option for chocolate milk.

ABOUT THE EPISODE

Forged carbon is creeping into the discussion in the cycling world and we're curious what it's all about. In this episode, Phil gives a quick lesson in basic carbon production and then teaches you about forged carbon. Because of several factors, including production speed and lower cost, forged carbon may be something that we see more of in the near future.

LISTENER QUESTION:

Rowan from Germany asks about the cause of his broken steerer tube.

The X100 is the Ultimate Mountain Bike Race and Fat Tire Festival! For 2016, they have a venue change and the race starts and finishes at the spectacular Timber Ridge RV and Resort, just a few minutes east of Traverse City, Michigan.  The race includes a 100 mile individual, 100 mile relay style 3 person team, 50 mile, and 25 mile race consisting of mostly twisting technical single track that winds in and out of county gravel roads, two tracks and fire roads.

Riders roll through the most beautiful terrain Michigan has to offer: deep woods and steep hills dotted with pristine lakes, streams and ponds. The X100 has some the most challenging sections of raw organic terrain and killer cross-country riding built by mountain bikers who have a passion for adventure, and – until now – known only by die-hard locals.
