ABOUT THE EPISODE

This is another special edition of The Last Aid Station. Mark brings you the most in-depth Absa Cape Epic coverage you’ll hear anywhere. Listen in as he rolls through the action and results of this year’s 2016 Absa Cape Epic in South Africa.

About the Absa Cape Epic – from the website: “The Absa Cape Epic must be completed by both members of a two-person team. The route changes every year, leading aspiring amateur and professional mountain bikers from around the world through roughly 800km of unspoilt scenery and 15 000m of accumulated climbing, over some of the most magnificent mountain passes in South Africa.

The Absa Cape Epic is the most televised mountain bike stage race in the world and the only eight-day mountain bike stage race classed as hors catégorie by the Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI). This official UCI status makes it a highlight on the professional racer’s calendar. The Absa Cape Epic also attracts aspiring amateur riders wanting to test themselves against the best. It is a full-service race, meaning that everything is taken care of from the start – all riders need to think about is riding.

If you are a race director or racer who would like to hear your race report on an episode of The Last Aid Station, please contact Mark at Mark@Mountainbikeradio.com. If you have any questions or feedback for Steve, please email him at Steve@Mountainbikeradio.com.

ABOUT THIS EPISODE

Leah Gruhn joins Andrea to discuss her recent successful first attempt at the Iditarod Trail Invitational. Leah breaks down her 350-mile fatbike trek from Knik Lake to McGrath, Alaska. It’s a great listen because Leah’s passion and excitement for the ITI and riding in general definitely comes through. Leah had a busy 2015-16 winter as she completed the Tuscobia Ultra, the Arrowhead 135, the Actif Epica, and the Iditarod Trail Invitational.

The Iditarod Trail Invitational is the world’s longest winter ultra marathon by fat bike, foot and ski, and follows the historic Iditarod Trail from Knik, Alaska over the Alaska Range to McGrath (350-mile) and to Nome (1000-mile) in late February every year one week before the Iditarod Sled Dog Race. The shorter 350-mile race finishes in the interior village of McGrath on the Kuskokwim River and the 1000-mile race finishes in Nome.

If you have any ideas for future guests or episodes, please contact us atinfo@mountainbikeradio.com.

RELATED SHOW NOTES:

ABOUT LEAH (from the Salsa Cycles website): “Leah Gruhn grew up in Rhode Island and developed a love of wilderness adventure in the far north as a teenager on summer canoe trips in northern Minnesota and the Canadian Arctic. After moving to Duluth, Minnesota, she became an avid cross-country skier and winter camper, and later competed in northern Minnesota’s Arrowhead 135 on cross-country skis. The following year, Leah raced the Arrowhead on fatbike and quickly got hooked on long fatbike races. In total she has competed in six Arrowhead 135s, the ITI, Tuscobia Ultra, and Actif Epica.”

ABOUT THIS EPISODE

Drew is joined by guest, Ashley Korenblat. Ashley wrote a guest editorial on Mtbr.com titled “Say no to the Sustainable Trails Coalition” in December. Ashley is a former IMBA board president and CEO of Western Spirit Cycling Adventures in Moab, Utah. Wilderness access for mountain bikes and the stance of IMBA and the Sustainable Trails Coalition are divisive issues among mountain bikers, and are drawing a lot of attention from riders, local IMBA Chapters, and everyone involved with Wilderness Area access.

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

About Ashley from the Western Spirit Cycling Website:

“Ashley Korenblat bought Western Spirit in 1997 and since then has spent many days riding unknown trails creating the plethora of trips that Western Spirit now offers. Ashley is a graduate of Dartmouth and Tuck Business School, a former bike racer, former wall street captive and possessor of entrepreneurial spirit.

She was president of Merlin during the titanium mountain bike heyday and served as the IMBA President working to sustain trail availability to everyone. Combine all that with the desire for a Moab lifestyle and an alternative view of a fulfilling career path, and you have the perfect recipe for the owner of a cycling tour company.”

ABOUT THIS EPISODE

Steve Domahidy, the mastermind of Domahidy Designs, gave Matt and Andrea an exclusive peak at his new Domahidy All-Mountain Pinion Hardtail. It’s a good listen because it’s a unique look behind the scenes of a new product from a small bike manufacturer and you get to hear straight from the man behind it all. Listen in as they chat about several details about the bike, how it rides, what to expect from it, how and when to order and much more.

ABOUT DOMAHIDY ALL-MOUNTAIN PINION HARDTAIL

FROM DOMAHIDY DESIGNS
 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE 
FEBRUARY 24 2016
DOMAHIDY DESIGNS RELEASES THIRD MTB, A PINION GEARBOX PLUS BIKE!
Pre-Order Program Includes Free Set of Industry 9 Wheels
 
Denver, CO
 

Domahidy Designs has been teasing pictures and information of their latest model for over two months now, and although speculation about the final product has been relatively close, the full reveal didn’t come until today, when the start-up from industry veteran Steve Domahidy let loose the details of their newest creation for his eponymous brand.

The new bike, the name of which is simply the description of the bike, is the Domahidy Designs Titanium All-Mountain Pinion Hardtail. “We lovingly refer to this bike as the ‘play bike’,” says company founder Steve Domahidy, “It is the ultimate go anywhere hardtail.” The frame is made from triple butted 3/2.5 titanium and is designed around a 120-140mm front fork. The rear triangle is boost 148 spacing with room for meaty 27.5+ 3” tires. The real treat of this bike is where the bottom bracket would otherwise be. The Domahidy Designs is configured to receive a Pinion gearbox, and in the case of the All Mountain Pinion Hardtail, it comes with a P1.12, Pinion’s twelve-speed system.

Driving the rear wheel are two Gates cogs and a Gates belt drive. “With the Pinion gearbox and the Gates belt, this bike is virtually maintenance free,” says Domahidy. “Our new motto is #riderinseandrepeat.” According to the Pinion web site, maintenance on the box only requires an oil change once every 10,000km (or 6,200 miles) using their special synthetic oil.

With the belt, no lube is required so the drivetrain remains clean and quite for much longer than any typical derailleur system. The gearbox does come with a weight penalty, about a pound and three quarters more than a SRAM XX1 1×11 drivetrain, but the lack of maintenance, no derailleur or external gears, and the central and low location of the weight means the bike’s go anywhere, shift anytime ability takes this play bike into epic new territory. “We’re not saying the derailleur is dead,” Domahidy says with a smirk on his face, “but this box is a game changer.”

The Domahidy Designs Titanium All-Mountain Pinion Hardtail will retail for $4995 which will include the frame, Pinion gearbox, and Gates belt drive system. For the launch of the new All-Mountain Hardtail, Domahidy Designs is offering a pre-order special. Between now and March 31, if you’re willing to let go of $5k until the mid-summer delivery date, Domahidy Designs will give you a free set of Industry 9 wheels, either their new Back Country 27.5+ wheels OR their new 29” Trail wheels, depending on how you want to set your bike up.

The front can be ordered with either standard 100mm spacing or Boost 110 and spoke and hub color can be made to order. “We considered going back to our Kickstarter community for this project, but Kickstarter takes 10% of everything you raise, so we decided instead to put that 10% back in the pre-order special and offer something better to the customer,” Domahidy explains, “This way, the customer gets an amazing set of wheels, worth roughly $1000, to match up to their new All-Mountain hardtail.”

You can preorder here: http://shop.domahidydesigns.com/domahidy-designs-titanium-275and-all-mountain-pinion-hardtail/dp/76

As with all Domahidy Designs MTB’s, the All-Mountain also comes with a one year IMBA membership and free IMBA socks, continuing on the Domahidy Designs giveback program and included in the Pre-Order special.​

About Domahidy Designs:

Domahidy Designs is a new boutique bicycle company with only one mission: to make incredibly fun bikes to ride! At Domahidy Designs, the design means everything. These are production bikes, but the quality is every bit custom. Attention to detail is evident on every square inch of a Domahidy Designs frame, otherwise, Steve’s name wouldn’t go on it.

ABOUT THE EPISODE

This is a special episode of Just Riding Along. Matt spent a long weekend (100+ hours) being the assistant race director for Ben’s Frozen Events weekend near Minneapolis, Minnesota. This becomes a pro-Ben discussion about the weekend. *Note: Hi, this is Ben – I just want to note that I didn’t make Matt say any of this and it’s interesting to get a perspective about yourself from someone else. I learned plenty about my own strengths and weaknesses as well.
