050 - Lauf Cycles‘ switch to consumer direct & future products

050 - Lauf Cycles‘ switch to consumer direct & future products

October 26, 2021

In the 2 years since we've last partied with the Lauf Cycles team, they've switched from IBD to consumer direct, changed up most of their team, and are trying to find a good U.S. headquarters.

They've also been working hard on that full suspension gravel bike that's set to change the landscape, but they don't seem to be in a hurry to launch it.

We asked why, and talked a lot about the rest of the cycling industry, their growth, and future plans.

This one's a very casual conversation, but it's littered with interesting little facts about the bike industry as a whole that are definitely worth waiting for.

This episode is brought to you by 10 Barrel Brewing - If you like beer, and you're on the West Coast, check them out. Not only do they have some great beer, they also put on some rad events at their breweries in Oregon, Colorado, and Idaho!

049 - Giro tells how they mix style with safety

049 - Giro tells how they mix style with safety

October 5, 2021

It's one thing to make a helmet look good. Or to make it aerodynamic. And quite another to make it do both.

But when it needs to do all of those things and meet the required safety standards, that's where things get tricky. Fortunately, Giro has a lot of experience, and the man in charge of tying all those pieces together is Rob Wesson. In this episode, we learn how they go from concept sketch to a finished product that not only looks good, but keeps our heads safe...

This is Part 3 of our 3-part series on bicycle helmet designs and features. Check out Part 1, where Kali's founder explains why helmet testing standards are all wrong, and why your helmet really should be a lot softer. And in Part 2, Lazer explains why different head shapes, hairstyles, and even types of riders benefit from different fits and retention mechanisms.

048 - Lazer Helmets has a fit over retention mechs

048 - Lazer Helmets has a fit over retention mechs

October 1, 2021

We know, helmet retention systems...yawn. Except, there are so many ways to make them, and so many ways to make them work. 

And then there's fit...even helmets from the same brand can have drastically different fits across models. But why?

In this episode, Lazer's longtime US "helmeteer" Chris Smith explains why they use various systems, the pros and cons, and opines on how to get a helmet that fits correctly across head shapes, hairstyles, and more.

This is Part 2 of a 3-part series on bicycle helmet designs and features. Stay tuned for our interview with Giro on design to aerodynamics, and check out Part 1, where Kali's founder explains why helmet testing standards are all wrong, and why your helmet really should be a lot softer.

047 Kali Helmets explains why helmets are too hard

047 Kali Helmets explains why helmets are too hard

September 28, 2021

If you think bicycle helmets are designed to be as safe as possible, think again.

The problem isn't the brands...none of the good ones are cutting corners or making false claims.

The problem is the testing...it's unrealistic.

So helmets have to be harder than necessary to pass those tests and get certified to sell. Which is bad news for your brain.

In this episode, Kali Protectives founder Brad Waldron explains how things can be better, and shares how they design around these limitations as best they can to produce softer, safer helmets that can still past CPSC and EN testing.

This is Part 1 of 3 on bicycle helmet designs and features, stay tuned for interviews with Lazer and Giro on everything from fit to retention mechanisms to design to aerodynamics and more.

That's all by design.

In this episode, we hear the origin story and thought process behind their course design and more from founder Michael Marckx.

044 - Nex Gen Sports explains the bike industry

May 21, 2021

Ever wonder how backroom decisions and the struggle between designers and accountants affects what bikes actually make it to market? Or, more importantly, which features, designs and technologies get to be used to make our bikes better?

In this episode, Nex Gen Sports co-founder Paul Farrell shares his experience launching and running both his own bike brands and consultancies and manufacturer rep firms. Between the three, he's seen exactly how the cycling industry works, and knows how it could be better.

Their goal is to go straight from the factory and designer to the rider, allowing for better technologies and materials to be used without driving prices up. But will it work? Maybe...here's why he thinks it will.

043 - Panaracer talks gravel, and an MTB comeback!

043 - Panaracer talks gravel, and an MTB comeback!

May 7, 2021

If you're in the industry, chances are pretty good you know Jeff Zell, Panaracer's go-to guy for, well, just about everything, really. So he's the perfect guest to talk about how Panaracer went from one of the earliest brands making legit mountain bike tires, to leaping into the gravel bike category and owning it for quite some time before the rest of the industry caught up. We also talk about how Panaracer is trying to get back on the trails with some fresh designs... and how they develop those new mountain bike tread patterns.

If you've ever wondered what goes into making a bike tire design and how frame and suspension design plays into that, along with a little bit of Panaracer's history, this is a great one! Oh, and if you haven't seen them, Panaracer continually offers limited edition colors in their gravel tires, and they're always updating the sizing options to meet modern riders' needs on those glorious dirt roads we're all loving so much right now.

041 - How Swytch Bikes hacked their e-bike conversion kit

041 - How Swytch Bikes hacked their e-bike conversion kit

March 18, 2021

Swytch Bike founder Oliver Montague has a few stories to tell, both interesting and quite entertaining…especially when we get to his factory visits.

The Swytch e-bike conversion kit allows you to turn almost any bike into an electric assist e-bike, using a front wheel hub motor and lightweight battery pack that clicks onto a proprietary mount that couldn't be easier to use.

This interview isn't so much about the tech and the product, although we do cover that. It's more about how Oliver started the company by using Chinese e-bike kits and random parts to help others convert their bikes and, after hacking together hundreds of different combinations, figuring out a better solution and then launching a company to make it real.

Whether you like e-bikes or not, this one's a really fun conversation about how things work behind the scenes.

040 - Why is Harley Davidson launching e-bikes?

March 14, 2021

When none other than Harley Davidson launches an e-bike brand, we have to wonder how they're going to complete? What's makes Serial 1 unique, and how will they translate the Hog culture into pedal-assist bicycles?

Yes, they raised a few eyebrows when they announced they were launching a electric bike brand, but one look at the designs shows they've done their homework.

In this episode we'll talk about how Serial 1 president Jason Huntsman's aerospace experience working on the space shuttle, and his e-mobility efforts at Ford, led him to Harley Davidson, and now, leading their e-bike efforts at Serial 1.

039 - How COVID-19 affects a cyclist’s heart health

039 - How COVID-19 affects a cyclist’s heart health

January 5, 2021

Wondering how the Coronavirus will affect your heart?

Whether you should ride while you're infected with COVID-19?

What the long term health effects are as a cyclist?

How long it takes to recover from the virus?

We answer all those questions and more in this episode, with special guests Dr. Rand McClain and Trey Richardson. Dr. McClain is chief medical officer and heart health expert at LCR Health. Trey is a Bikerumor contributor and cycling industry veteran who has extensive experience and training in physical therapy and high level competition.

Together, they share their real world experience (Trey was infected and had thorough testing done) and medical knowledge about how COVID-19 affects a cyclist's heart, lungs, and body...and why you need to be especially careful when resuming exercise to ensure you don't do long term damage to your organs!

038 - Rahsaan Bahati shares how to make cycling more inclusive

038 - Rahsaan Bahati shares how to make cycling more inclusive

June 11, 2020

A couple of episodes ago, I interviewed my friend Christian about his experience as a black cyclist working in the industry. I invited him back to co-interview this week's guest, Rahsaan Bahati.

Rahsaan's a multi-multi-multi-time national champion pro road racer who's been on some of the top, and most controversial, teams. In this episode, he shares how he got into cycling, his experience in the peloton and now leading a team, a foundation, and helping nurture the next generation of racers.

If you're tuning in sometime in the future, we recorded this on June 9, 2020, about two weeks after George Floyd's murder sparked massive Black Lives Matter protests across the nation. In that light, we discuss Rahsaan's experiences as a black man racing and winning in a predominantly white sport, and wrap up with a few ideas on how all of us can help introduce a more diverse audience to the sport we all know and love so much…cycling.

One quick note: about 5 minutes in Rahsaan's signal gets a little warbly, but it goes away within a minute, and you can still make out the conversation.

Enjoy!

037 - Pro Downhiller Tahnee Seagrave recounts racing Fort William

June 7, 2020

This weekend was set to host the Downhill World Cup at Fort William, Scotland. In the absence of racing, we caught up with an athlete who’s raced that track no fewer than 13 times over the last 8 years, a rider set to inspire a generation of aspiring downhill racers, the 2013 Junior World Champion, Tahnee Seagrave.

We chatted with Tahnee on June 4th, at a time when she’s recovering from injury at her home in North Wales, contemplating the ever illusive 2020 race season. We talk about how she’s keeping herself busy with rehab during lockdown, her memories of racing Fort William and her new relationship with Canyon.

036 - A Conversation with a Black Cyclist

036 - A Conversation with a Black Cyclist

June 5, 2020

I'm recording this on Friday, June 5th, almost one week after the Black Lives Matter protests started and spread throughout the country. To say this is an interesting time in our history is an understatement. And to say I'm curious about where we go from here, equally so.

I like asking questions. I like learning. And I like talking to interesting people. And this week, I got to do just that with my friend Christian.

He's black, he's a cyclist, and he's been in the cycling industry for almost two decades.

In this episode, we have a candid chat on his back porch about how he's feeling right now, what it's like being african american in a predominantly white industry, and more

It's an awesome conversation, and I'm seriously stoked that I have friends like that who are open to having the conversations that matter. I sincerely hope you enjoy this episode. Hit us up on social and let me know what you think...we're @bikerumor on all the major platforms. And if you like, please share it with your friends.

035 - Why is Budnitz Cycles shutting down?

May 22, 2020

Budnitz Cycles is one of those brands that has definitely elicited strong emotions over the years, and they've made some beautiful bikes. So it came as quite a shock to me when they posted that they were shutting down. I wondered why, so I called Paul up to get the scoop.

And his answer?

Well, let's just say this conversation does not disappoint. It's short, just 20 minutes, but worth a listen. And his advice for wanna be entrepreneurs at the end is priceless.

034 - Mullet Cycles explains mixed wheel size mountain bikes

034 - Mullet Cycles explains mixed wheel size mountain bikes

May 8, 2020

Ever wonder why people would run a smaller wheel on the back of their mountain bike? Or a larger fork and wheel up front and create what's affectionately known as a "mullet"?

So did we, so we reached out to Mullet Cycles' founders to get them to explain the benefits of a mixed wheel setup. Handling is one of them, but there's a lot more to it than that.

We also discuss the history of how bicycles came to be standard with two same size wheels, and why moto mixes smaller wheels front or rear depending on the application. We kick things off with some of their own history and why they started a bike brand specifically to make bikes with different wheel sizes.

It's a fun conversation that may just have you considering a mullet for your next mountain bike!

033 - PUSH Industries on bike industry job opportunities

April 21, 2020

These are tough times for many folks and industries, and the bicycle industry is no exception. But, after talking with PUSH Industries' founder Darren Murphy, we're seeing a light at the end of the tunnel.

In this episode, we talk about how there are actually quite a few opportunities for growth, tons of jobs to be had, and how anyone can get into them. It's a bit of a random conversation, ranging from automation, modern manufacturing, jobs, and how they are personally handling the forced shutdowns during the COVID-19/Coronavirus outbreak in the U.S. But it's worth a listen to hear how you, or someone you know, could break into the cycling industry with a high paying job, great benefits, and work for some pretty killer companies!

032 - ENVE explains pro wheel testing, hookless rims & more!

032 - ENVE explains pro wheel testing, hookless rims & more!

March 25, 2020

ENVE is pushing tubeless hard across all of their wheels and rims. And not just to all of us, but to their sponsored pro team riders, too. In this episode, we talk with them about how they tested their wider AR-series wheels with the pros. The process led to NTT deciding to use them not just for the cobbled classics, but wanting them for every race going forward!

We also talk about:

  • How a hookless rim design can work for higher pressure road bike tire applications
  • How and why they test so many different brand road tires before approving them for use on their rims
  • What those tests mean for future road tire development
  • What else is coming from ENVE for hookless, tubeless road rims

For more info on the hookless rim design and ENVE in general, check out their AASQ post, too. Huge thanks to Jake and Neil for joining us on the Bikerumor Podcast! To see their full lineup, head over to ENVE's website.
