ABOUT THIS EPISODE

Auk is hiding, but Nathan and Tani go crazy. 29" in the front and 27.5" for the rear??? Is Tani nuts or is he on to something. They go through the usual show flow, giving you some shop news followed by a lot of great bike discussion. Scientifically accurate vs generally informative? Tani may have lost his mind with this new project. Plus, they discuss Tani's Bike Buying Directives (in case you're looking for a new bike or even thinking about a new bike...)

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

ABOUT THE EPISODE

Jim Cummins and LeLan Dains of Dirty Kanza Productions join Guitar Ted and Ben to discuss the 2017 Dirty Kanza. Registration opens Saturday, January 14 at 8am Central time. They discuss several topics, including women in cycling and the Dirty Kanza #200women200miles initiative. Listen in to hear what's happening behind the scenes, what you can expect, and a good look into the nuts and bolts and logistics of Dirty Kanza. If you're looking for some good gravel discussion, this is worth a listen.

If you have any questions, comments, or have an idea for an episode, please feel free to contact us anytime

ABOUT DIRTY KANZA

From the Dirty Kanza website: "Dirty Kanza Promotions was founded in 2006 by Jim Cummins, with the assistance of fellow cycling enthusiast Joel Dyke. At that time, gravel grinding was just beginning to catch the interest of the endurance cycling community. However, Jim had grown up in the Flint Hills of east central Kansas and had been riding gravel for decades. Inspired by some of the early gravel grinder events… and convinced the Flint Hills had the best gravel to be found anywhere in the world, Jim and Joel decided to create Dirty Kanza 200.

Initially, these two gravel aficionados had no idea the extent to which this whole gravel grinding thing would grow, nor did they give it any real thought. That wasn’t what motivated them. They both simply felt their lives had been enriched through cycling. And DK200 was their attempt to give back to the cycling community.

Since then, the popularity of gravel grinding has exploded and is now the fastest growing genre in the cycling industry. The popularity of DK200 has grown too, from 34 participants in 2006, to an anticipated 2,200 riders in 2017. And while that growth has brought with it a few changes to our format and the way we have to manage certain aspects of the event, one thing has remained constant… DK200 is a grass-roots event, organized and managed by folks who are passionate about cycling, and done so for the primary purpose of providing life-enriching cycling experiences for our event participants."
