We talk about the new Issue of SCB, #132, our Bike to Work edition. We also discuss further safety concerns for the pro pelotons and what the kind of gear changes that could occur in the cycling world at large. Sponsored by Pedego Electric Bikes.
This episode covers some interesting gear news. We share our thoughts on SRAM’s decision to do away with front MTB derailleurs on future groupset designs and discuss news from the UK that shows a promising future for bike-friendly cities with elements that could be implemented in SoCal and US domestic cities.
We speak with David Figueroa and Sean Heck, the owners of Sunset Cycles, who we hung with at their shop in the Claremont Packing House. Sunset Cycles is a service-oriented shop with a select few bikes for purchase, and since their opening in 2015, David and Sean’s goal has always been to be “better than your average shop”.
We discuss the recent acquisition of ENVE wheels and the effects of consolidation in the bicycle industry. We then get into a discussion on the Netflix documentary based on the book, Death of Marco Pantani.
