"Just Riding Along," with Andrea, Full Face Kenny, and Pool Boy Matt is bike talk from educated and experienced bike mechanics. While it's based on mechanic talk, don't expect it to be kid-friendly, bland discussion about technical specifications. Listeners are encouraged to email to say "hey," ask questions about their old junker, new parts, Craigslist bike deal, or just talk about beer.
You're lucky! Two shows in a row with a double dose of Just Riding Along. This time, listeners go back in time in the first episode and then get a lot of brake talk in the second.
