    030 - The Future of Gravel Racing, Part Two

    030 - The Future of Gravel Racing, Part Two

    We're back for part 2 of our Future of Gravel roundtable conversation.  If you missed the first one, I'd recommend catching that if you want to learn more about the history of some of the US's largest, most popular gravel races, and how they're making their races more diverse and getting more women involved. We have owners of Crusher in the Tushar, Dirty Kanza, Rebecca's Private Idaho, The Mid South, which was formerly known as The Land Run 100, SBT Gravel in Steamboat Colorado, and Pete Stetina, who's a pro racer that's just launched his own gravel ride event called Pay Dirt. All MC'd by gravel racer Yuri Hauswald in a casual setting, this episode kicks off with him getting Pete going on the subject of pros taking over the front of the pack.

    Next up, we'll return to our three part Van Life series with VanDOit to wrap up the conversation on how to  customize your own camper van, Sprinter or Ford Transit!

    029 - The Future of Gravel Racing, Part 1

    029 - The Future of Gravel Racing, Part 1

    Ready to get your gravel on? At this winter's ENVE Gravel Camp, they brought out several of the biggest names in gravel races. We round tabled with the promoters and owners of Crusher in the Tushar, Dirty Kanza, Rebecca's Private Idaho, The Mid South, which was formerly known as The Land Run 100, SBT Gravel in Steamboat Colorado, and Pete Stetina, who's a pro racer that's just launched his own gravel ride event called Pay Dirt.
    MC-ing the discussion is gravel racer extraordinaire Yuri Hauswald, and he brings us through all the major topics affecting gravel cycling and racing today. Everything from why gravel is so hot right now, how they've built their races so big (or why they've chosen not to), getting more women to show up and how the industry can do better, and what effect it'll have when the pros really start showing up and crushing us mere mortals. It's a lot, running a hair over two hours, so we split this into two parts. If you want to know what the state of gravel riding and racing is, this conversation will both enlighten and entertain!

    028 - VanDOit explains everything about solar, battery & power for #Vanlife

    028 - VanDOit explains everything about solar, battery & power for #Vanlife

    In this episode, VanDOit’s mad scientist Jared McCauslin talks us through everything we ever wanted to know (and didn’t know to ask) about custom electrical systems for your camper van, Sprinter, Transit or whatever adventure vehicle you’re building.
    We talk about the pros and cons of Solar Power, how and why to use it, what it will and won’t do, and how much you need for your adventure camper van.
    They put about 400W on a standard install, and say it pays for itself in about year three by saving on battery replacements. More importantly, it helps keep everything electrical running efficiently, serves as a backup to make sure your car will start, and gives you enough juice to run a few conveniences in the evening.’
    But it’s about more than just the number of watts your solar panels can pump out. It’s also about the type of batteries you have. The most common battery types for custom vans are Lead Acid, Lithium Ion, or AGM. The latter is what VanDOit uses, and they all recharge and discharge at different rates, and in different ways. All of which can affect your ability to  power equipment inside the vehicle when you’re off grid.
    There’s also a lot of talk about battery type, technology and rates of charge and discharge. Sound too geeky? Not if you want to make smart decisions about which appliances you choose for your van,  how you use them and ways to conserve power. We also talk about why Lithium Ion batteries aren’t always the best choice (they’re expensive, and require far more computer management to maintain), and why they use AGM Deep Cycle batteries.
    We really go down the rabbit hole on this one, talking about everything from wire gauge and type, the differences between AC and DC power and how it’s used inside a camper van, how to properly use a generator, and more.
    If you’re thinking about wiring your own custom van, this is a must listen because there is so, SOOOO much to consider. Even choosing the wrong type of wire can really mess things up down the road.

    026 - How Tifosi Optics started

    Ever wonder how Tifosi Optics got started? And how they've grown against the juggernauts like Oakley, Smith and more? And outlasted efforts from Giro and Specialized to enter the cycling sunglasses game?
    It's all here in this episode, where Tyler interviews co-founder Joe Earley about how he and his wife launched and have grown Tifosi into one of the largest sunglasses brands in specialty retail.
    This episode originally aired as part of Tyler's entrepreneurship/startup podcast series, The Build Cycle. Check it that out on your favorite podcast player if you'd like to hear more startup stories from outdoor, cycling and adventurous lifestyle brands.

    025 - Megan Dean's Marvelous Moth Attack!

    025 - Megan Dean's Marvelous Moth Attack!

    For our final interview in our series on the people around the Philadelphia Bike Expo and SRAM Framebuilder Inclusivity Scholarship, we have the pleasure of speaking to my friend (and occasional Madison partner), the marvelous Megan Dean of Moth Attack. The most experienced of the builders in this series, Megan is also the least ornamental. Rather than focus on flare, Megan obsesses over handling and ride feel, fitting ride experience and bike to rider. As a result her bikes are clean, and her range of product tends to expand as her personal riding tastes do.
