Podcast: Bikes, Cars, & Chasing Life’s Passion with Mike Levy & SRAM's David Zimberoff

Recorded before Levy's alien abduction, he sat down with DZ for a chat. Mike Levy lives and breathes the biking world. Since he discovered mountain biking as a kid, he’s gotten at least 200 days per year every year. He calls Squamish home these days and you’re more likely to find him wearing lycra on his gravel rig than baggy shorts on an enduro bike.




The 96 Podcast: Tracy Moseley

Words - Scott Beaumont

Scott Beaumont speaks to former teammate and one of Mountain Biking greats, Tracy Moseley. Tracy's career has spanned the last 3 decades, all the wheel sizes and all the disciplines. She has literally done it all and won pretty much most of it! Now a mum to Toby, her schedule may have slowed down a bit but she continues to inspire globally and make a huge impact in our sport.




Podcast: A Trail Builder's Dream Bike

Words - Pascal Pensa

We sat down with Micha Rudolph to talk about his Trail Building Commuter, a project bike that recently won the Leaf Cycles Klunker Custom Challenge. As the forebears of modern day mountain bikes, Klunkers hold a special place in history and adding the utility of bringing your trail building tools to the secret spot presents an interesting bridge to the cargo bikes and micromobility solutions of the present day.




Podcast: Clay Porter talks MTB Drive To Survive, Deathgrip 2, the current state of downhill and more

Words - TheRideCompanion

Clay Porter is back in the UK filming for that not so secret DG2 project so, of course he found himself dragged into the TRC studio for another podcast!

The Pinkbike Podcast: Episode 196 - The Industry Ideas That Just Keep Coming Back

Words - Pinkbike

There are some ideas that the industry keeps coming back to. Whether it's high-pivots, oval chainrings or even mix-wheeled bikes, some things seem to have their moment in the sun once a decade. In this week's podcast, Dario, Kaz and Matt join me to talk about what they wish would come back, and what they hope goes forever. There are lukewarm takes, some strange tangents and some ideas that are just flatly antiquated and wrong.

 I bet Levy is more than happy to have been abducted by aliens. It's great to be proven right, but a bummer that he's gone and can't gloat about it.

 I've been busy the last month ripping some loamy gnar. What happened to Levy? He was at least 20% of the reason I visit the site.
