It must be because we just rode the OC Gran Fondo last week, but we are craving more dirt! Luckily, Peloton magazine and The Mob Bike Shop have organized an event with the emphasis on putting wheels to dirt. The PELOTON Gravel MOB is on November 7th in Ojai, CA. If you plan on riding the full 58 miles, you will encounter two dirt climbs, aka “The Mini Mob”. However, you can skip the second climb and head back to the starting line with one dirt climb and 30 miles under your belt. Celebrate your accomplishment with congratulatory all-you-can eat tacos and a beer at The Mob Shop in Ojai. It’s going to be beautiful, and dirty. * The organizers recommend “a cross or gravel bike with compact road gearing, but you could probably swing it on a road bike with a wider gravel or dirt tire… Of course a mountain bike will be fine as well.”

We see the bike media et. al. falling over themselves to encourage a public dependence on component electronics. And both ebikes and component electronics have an intrinsic designed obsolescence, by virtue of these systems having a limited number of battery cycles. There won’t be ‘vintage’ drivetrains in 20 years as none of the batteries will be usable. I have a birthday coming up, maybe I’m being overly nostalgic to consider this.
I’ll dissect exactly what happened further down, but for the moment I’ll say this: On the international race broadcast and across Twitter, there was a sentiment that the pit mishap was not Brand’s fault, and that it cost Brand the win. I don’t believe either of those suggestions are accurate.
