MTB Wheelset Testing & Establishing Proof of Concept (Ep.211)

Greg Vanderbeek is back with a Blister Labs update on our mountain-bike-wheels testing. He and I discuss why the dynamic modeling we’ve been doing in the field is a critical component for ongoing testing back at Western Colorado University; what the test results are revealing about the age-old question of carbon vs. aluminum wheels; and we talk about the joy of new tires, the magic of espresso, and more.
