Colin Bailey - The Inside Line Podcast

Colin Bailey is a former downhill racer, inventor of the Maxxis Minion DHF tire, mountain bike race mechanic for Giant Factory Off-Road, a craftsman and an artist. So many things describe Colin, but his straight-shooting style speaks for itself. I'm honored to have had the chance to sit down with him to discuss his history in mountain biking, his career as a racer and his bigger life story that eventually landed him back in our race scene as a mechanic. Enjoy the show with a true innovator within our community. A guest appearance from Kirt Voreis adds even more fun flavor to the episode.
