The Pinkbike Podcast: Episode 32 - What Needs to Change in the Bike Industry?
I am loving the pod casts, I always listen to them on the way home from work in the car. Some days its "just the right amount of stupid" that I need to unwind after a stressful day on the job. I learn a bit, I laugh a bit, all good. An idea for an upcoming podcast would be: Everyone research + pick a couple bikes at challenging price points and explain why they chose what they did. Make it tough and realistic for many by have some budget options like, under $1000, under $2500 , under $4000, over $6000 (all in USD). I think it would spark some lively debate over specs and geometry choices of the product designers/managers. Anyway, keep em coming I really enjoy all +30 episodes so far. Its been a small bright spot in an otherwise dark year.
