 While in Cable, WI Ben and Matt stop by on location of the Chequamegon Fat Tire Festival in order to pick Gary Crandall’s brain. After racing the first edition and getting a top 20 finish, Gary stumbled into this position due to a little free time on his hands and the ability to run a manual typewriter.

Trail Cast Show Page

ABOUT THIS EPISODE:

Drew quickly tackles Politics, and why they should matter to you. A recent shakeup in local politics resulted in feeling like this episode needed to happen. I give some examples why you might want to stay involved in local politics if your trails matter to you.

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.

ABOUT THIS EPISODE

Live on location at Up North Guided Tours Ben sits Matt down, hands him a drink, and they work on getting to the bottom of Matt's dislike of fatbikes. This has been a great week to experience some good groomed riding for Matt. After riding real groomed trails Ben wanted to see if Matt's perspective of the fat tires has changed, and if so how. Tune in and try to listen to the whole thing, this show is a long one but the end is good.

ABOUT THIS EPISODE:

The guys head over to the Intense Cycles headquarters in Temecula, California to meet up with the guy behind the company, Jeff Steber. They discuss some general topics about Intense, their products, philosophy, and processes. Then they reveal the new, 2nd generation, carbon Tracer. Listen in as they give a lot of detail and time to discussing the specifics about the newest addition to their lineup.

From the Tracer page: "Intense proudly introduces the latest addition to its complete line up of carbon mountain bikes - the 2nd Generation carbon TRACER. Three years in the making, the new Tracer has big shoes to fill. Its predecessor was one of the brand's most acclaimed, best-selling models to date and won the "Interbike Bike of the Year Award" in 2014.

For 2017, the new bike offers up a modern trail geometry, with longer reach for a more confidence-inspiring ride. The JS Tuned suspension "enduro link" has been developed and refined, offer longer links (including a carbon upper link) to optimize leverage curve, axle path and overall performance to make the Tracer an uncompromising enduro race machine."

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
