Battling Lyme Disease - Ian Hylands Part 2 of 2 - The Inside Line Podcast

Welcome mountain bikers! Thanks for tuning into The Inside Line podcast. Today we wrap up a candid interview with influential photographer, Ian Hylands. In part one we discussed his history and his impact on our sport, and today we get into his battle with Lyme disease and how that impacted his life. We dig into how he transitioned from a film photographer primarily shooting for print magazines to digital and internet-based work, his time as staff photographer at Niner Bikes, how he ended up at Deity components and a brief nod to the epic human we know as John Kerr, the photographer at Mountain Bike Action. We conclude with some photo tech with Ph.D-level insight into flash photography. It’s been an honor to have Ian on the show and I know you’ll enjoy the episode.


The Inside Line Listener Response Question

What do you think about the prices of mountain bikes and ebikes these days? In just the last week, we had a few different new bike come out that blew past the $10,000 range. We also have some incredibly-performing budget bikes out there now. What do you think?
