#97: A Weekend of Misadventure

Fatty has been vacationing and says his kits don’t fit. In the spirit of truth in advertising, we’re actually pretty relieved. A skinny Fatty is not a fatty, right? Recently, he went with the Hammer to St. George, Utah, for some riding. Misadventure ensued. In other news, how important is...

#93: Stinner Frameworks, being sick, Sagan's elbows are okay

Cold and flu season. That’s what we call it, right? As if it were restricted to a few months of the year like maple sugaring or cyclocross Nordic skiing. No matter how long it’s meant to last, it’s here once again and while Hottie’s rides are getting longer, Patrick is off...

Running. On a cycling podcast. What is the world coming to? Well, it is that time of year, thanks to cyclocross and, in some places, inclement weather. Hottie and Fatty admit they’ve turned to the dark side, at least some. Patrick? Off mic he said he’d rather get dental work....

In our first VIQ (Very Important Question) we asked you, our audience, which foot you place forward when descending. We assumed most riders would indicate they put their left foot forward.
