    Steel City Media's Joe Bowman - The Inside Line

    Steel City Media's Joe Bowman - The Inside Line

    Welcome mountain bikers! Can you believe we started on this journey with The Inside Line podcast five years ago?! When we think about how fun mountain biking is and how incredible the people in our sport are, itā€™s no surprise that the time flew by. Everyone at Vital would like to thank you, the listener, for joining us on this ride. Rides with friends are always more fun and without you sharing the stoke with us, thereā€™d be no reason to tell the stories from our community. Thank you!

    We have a great show today with Joe Bowman of Steel City Media. Not just a man behind a video camera or social media channel, heā€™s pretty hand on a bike and is the reason The Union World Cup downhill team exists to help give young riders a shot at the big time. He is also the filmer behind the first Vital RAW with Adam Brayton at Schladming back in 2013!

    Jenson USA has been with us for five years, supporting The Inside Line and you can support them by shopping for your bikes, parts and riding gear at JensonUSA.com.

    Maxxis Tires has kept us on this audio trail for half a decade, too, thanks to their support. Whether theyā€™re winning World Cup races or helping punters like me feel like Greg Minnaar on the trail, Maxxis has the mountain bike tires for any riding style or condition. Hit up maxxis.com

    And while Santa Cruz is the frame sponsor of The Union team discussed in the show today, theyā€™re also giving $1m to trail projects and initiatives through their PayDirt fund. Hit up santacruzbicycles.com/paydirt to see how your project may be helped with their program. More trails, more smiles.

    Again, thank you, listeners, we hope your new year is going well and we look forward to 5 more years of The Inside Line. Enjoy the show!

    Aaron Lutze - The Inside Line Podcast

    Welcome mountain bikers. Iā€™m really excited about todayā€™s Inside Line podcast. Our guest started Rob Warnerā€™s twitter account, helped logistically get the first Freecaster World Cup Downhill live streams off the ground, was the man behind Match Videozine, may be the biggest trials fan ever and was an athlete manager at Red Bull for years. This is just the tip of the iceberg when describing Aaron Lutze history in our sport. I hope you get a kick out of the stories and history with Aaron Lutze today, and maybe youā€™ll learn something new too. Enjoy the show!

    Boise Bike Park Head of Maintenance - Dustin Zeis

    Boise Bike Park Head of Maintenance - Dustin Zeis

    Welcome mountain bikers! Thanks for tuning into The Inside Line podcast. Today Iā€™m stoked to have Dustin Zeis on the show. Dustin is the reason the Boise Bike Park keeps its flow and runs so well throughout riding season. As Head of Maintenance, he's a Boise city employee blending his passion for riding bikes with building trails. In this episode, we discuss how he turned his love of getting two wheels off the ground into a full-time job.

    If you have a public bike park or trails system in your area, make sure you thank the people that make it run. Itā€™s such a great time to be a mountain biker with so many places to ride. Enjoy the show!

    The Inside Line is proud to have jensonusa.com as a sponsor of the show. They have some fantastic holiday sales going on right now, so scoop up some gifts for you and your loved ones. Use coupon code insideline at checkout and receive 10% off qualifying items.

    Even though winter is coming in, Maxxis tires still keep us gripping and ripping on the trails, no matter what the conditions. Iā€™m back to a Minion DHR II front and Aggressor rear combo on my Santa Cruz 5010, and theyā€™ve been nothing but fast and predictable.

    Speaking of Santa Cruz, they offer free lifetime bearing replacements on all their full-suspension frames, and theyā€™ve pledged 1 million dollars over 3 years to trail projects and groups through their Paydirt Fund.Ā
