ABOUT THIS EPISODE

The gang tackles an odd show this week: no questions, no donations, just an hour of shooting the breeze about bikes, rims, and the usual stuff. Kenny and Matt don't have much in the way of stories but Andrea has a zinger of a tale (tail) from racing Breck 68 this past weekend. Andrea tries prodding Matt into a rant about suspension on drop bar bikes by mentioning the new Pinarello, but Matt makes lemonade out of lemons and tries to project where all of this is going in the next few years.

ABOUT THIS EPISODE

The crew launches in with the normal banter and updates. Andrea is finally riding her Pivot Switchblade, Kenny blows up the Reba fork doing some big-ness on the lift runs, and Matt has light news. They discuss how Chris Plesko is leading the Colorado Trail Race on a rigid single speed in terrible weather and how hard it must be. Then weather strikes and a storm knocks Kenny out of the mix so Andrea and Matt knock out the questions.

The MBR& Show Page

ABOUT THIS EPISODE:

Ben sits down with Jeff for the second time on MBR and you don't want to miss it. They run through how Jeff got started riding, how he tasted his breakfast at the end of his first Leadville 100 and how that plays into how Tailwind was started. The story goes through a lot of growth, from using a Kitchenaid stand mixer to make one batch at a time to buying a tumbling mixer, but not having the money for a motor, how he made his own sifter using an orbital sander, and how as the business has grown to a 12 person team, they still keep a personal touch on every order.

ABOUT THIS EPISODE

When Griff repeatedly failed to learn to bunny hop on his own, no matter how many how-to videos he watched, he took an online course. After a 3 month struggle, he’s now a beginner but was amazed at how difficult it was. In this episode, he explains his top 5 reasons why it’s so hard to learn. If your expectations are realistic, you stand a better chance of learning what some say is the most difficult skill in mountain biking: the bunny hop.

ABOUT THIS EPISODE:

Ben gets David Krimstock on a solid internet connection to get his scoop on how he has packed so much living into the first 26 years of his life. Things all start for David as being a state champion swimmer before age 10, to having a rough go with addiction and drugs that finally takes control after a nasty longboarding accident as his junior year of high school was ending.

Once this happened and athleticism wasn't the top priority, the drug use frequency and potency ramped up rapidly to a climax of IV drug use, flunking out of rehabs, and overdosing in Denver bus stops. The rest of the story is in the show, tune in to hear how David is now racing at an elite level and leading others through the Jaywalker Lodge.

ABOUT THIS EPISODE:

Mark lays out where TLAS is going before launching into an interview with Rose Grant. Mark talks with Rose about her trajectory from a collegiate soccer player transitioning to distance running and not touching her bike for a decade. Rose gives us the lowdown on how returning to the bike and rising to the pro ranks happened so quickly, with the birth of a child and injury sprinkled in along the way. Tune in to here how Rose overcame setbacks and grew stronger in the face of adversity to rise to her level of dominance today.

ABOUT THIS EPISODE

This is a special flashback posting for the newer listeners who don't know the roots of the JRA Crew. This show is from April 18, 2016 when the X7 Dumpster fire ignites.

Also, a link to a really cool flask for some very "Excited Armadillos". 

ABOUT THIS (the original) EPISODE

Matt is antsy and skips right to listener questions. They hammer out the most listener questions they’ve answered in a loooong time. Those questions include plenty of drivetrain talk, as well as whether or not people should dump their crappy bikes.
