ABOUT THIS EPISODE

John Burke is the President of Trek and wants the best for everyone at Trek, as well as the entire country. He has tremendous experience working with people and enjoys reading and current events. Throughout his life, he’s been interested in learning from other leaders and taking action himself.

In this episode, John shares his life and experience during his early years at Trek and some of the early lessons that have contributed to his current status. Then John discusses his newest book, 12 Simple Solutions to Save America. Listen in for some good perspective from one of the cycling industry’s leaders about how we can help change the country for the better.

About the book, 12 Simple Solutions to Save America:

“In 2011, John Burke attended his son’s graduation ceremony at Marquette University. Author David McCullough was the commencement speaker, and he gave some advice that day that really stuck with Burke. Those words were: “at some point, do something for your country.” That evening, Burke began to think about what he could do for his country. For years he had been disappointed by the Government’s inability to solve any of the big issues our country faced.

It was that evening on the drive home from his son’s graduation ceremony that Burke decided he would write a book about the big problems America faces and solutions to fix those issues. In 12 Simple Solutions to Save America, Burke talks candidly about what he believes should serve as America’s core values and offers 12 simple solutions to some of the most complex problems that America faces.”

ABOUT THIS EPISODE

What do you do when your rear wheel is about to impact a decent size rock, log, or ledge?

If you're a beginner or intermediate-level rider, you probably rely on some combination of momentum, traction, rear suspension, hope and prayer.

If you've taken an MTB 101 course, your instructor probably taught you how to 'load and explode' followed by a lifting of the rear wheel with a scooping/clawing of the pedal with the rear foot. And you probably never do that type of 'lifting' for good reason.

In this episode, Griff explains why rear wheel unweighting is much more useful than rear wheel lifting. Plus, it's much easier to learn.

We want to hear from you! If you have any questions, comments, or ideas for the next episode, contact us at ben@mountainbikeradio.com.

RELATED SHOW VIDEOS

I recorded this video of me going over this rock at Lebanon Hills Mountain Biking Trails on a hardtail fat bike about a year ago. As you can see in the stop motion segment, I’m not using a bunny hop.

I’m using a manual to lift my front wheel so it kisses the top of the rock. I then load/compress my weight (not enough, it appears) and then ‘explode’ straight up, unweighting my rear wheel early enough so that it is rising up off the ground as it impacts the rock.

I’m not scooping or clawing or lifting my rear wheel with my trailing right foot at all.

"Using a manual and rear wheel unweighting to get over a big rock"

 

I made this short video a couple years ago, demonstrating rear wheel unweighting over some small firewood, followed by rear wheel unweighting up a curb, no front wheel braking.

In the last segment, it might look like I’m using a scooping/clawing/lifting technique with my rear foot, toes pointed down. But I’m not. I’m just leaping, with hand pressure on my bars opposed with foot pressure on my pedals.
