ABOUT THIS EPISODE

Another backwards episode. The crew runs through some listener statements, some listener questions, and talks about what has been going on with them. Andrea is still teetering on the edge of her chair waiting for her new bike, Matt is tired from riding a lot, and Kenny has been riding without much fanfare lately. This is hands down the best episode of . . . something. Tune in to hear it all. PS, it isn't thirty minutes or less.

ABOUT THIS EPISODE

Tune in to this episode of JRA for something a little different. The words of Niner's president Chris Sugai struck a nerve with Matt. He prompts the crew to discuss where the industry has come from, how bikes have changed in the last few years, and what can probably be expected in the next few years. This is a good one.

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.
