Totally dig the podcast, the super in depth test session reviews, and interviews like this one. Glad Vital is publishing long form content. Vital is really upping their game compared to other mtb media

A Jeff rides a flat kinda weak trail but his dog shreds
B Tucker - The only reason we care about Jeff?
C Pimpin' your dog for 15 minutes on the internet. Pathetic or a mental sickness?
Spomer, thank you for always having my back!
The story is, I haven't had a bike sponsor for about 3 years. When budgets cuts hit Specialized marketing in 2013, my AllRide tour and Allride Jr development got dropped. I was super bummed but wanted to stay on the brand so I got a frame...more
