52: Clincher vs. Tubular, Tire Pressure, and Big Brand Cycles
This episode is brought to you by: Phil's Fondo and the SLO Gran Fondo.
Clincher Tires vs. Tubular - Tim explains the difference between clincher tires vs. tubular tires inspired by the clincher tires Tony Martin's used during his Time Trial record.
Tire Pressure - We talk about tire pressure as it relates to performance, and why a mountain bike can support you at 40 psi when a road bike cannot. Finally, we ask the rabbit hole question: do hubs hang or do they stand on their spokes?
Co-Op Cycles - REI launched Co-op Cycles at this year's Interbike, introducing a new brand of bikes built around riders who enjoy trail, mixed surface and longer touring adventures. Co-op Cycles will be replacing the longstanding house brand, Novara. We discuss the implications of large outdoor brands stepping into the cycling ring.
Doping Follow-up - We follow up on our doping episode and see what the consensus has been in the last week. While we may be beating a dead horse, we feel that the doping issue is a topic that should continue to be discussed.
