Being a mountain biker in 2020 is pretty sweet. But like most good recipes, mountain biking requires a little bit of salt too. So this week, with a hat tip to Ryan Palmer, we went directly to the salt mine.
Kaz, Sarah, James, & I discussed a few of the things we'd like to see changed in the mountain bike world. It's true that we have it so good
these days, and a lot of our frustrations are the epitome of first world problems, but that doesn't mean there isn't room for improvement! As always, we also chatted about the latest mountain bike news, and answered a few listener questions.
