We want to send out some healing vibes out to our amigo, Scott Quiring. Scott crashed his 29r trying to follow a fat bike and broke 8 ribs and his arm!

On this week’s Show:

  • We’ve got Colin Ford back in the studio
  • Paul Ellis from Hed tells us about his ethereal 9:Zero:7
  • We’ve got some new gear in the Test Kitchen
  • and what goes better with bikes than –  BEER!

What’s in the fat-bike radio cooler this week? New Holland Monkey King – Monkey King is a Farmhouse Ale – 6.6 % alchahooze and scores a 23 on the IBU test.

Hed Wheels Carbon Fiber opener will be a future prize for a contest.

Ad from the Old Familiar Comb Company. A real product that you can comb your beard with as well as open bottles! Stainless Steel, folks!
