That 17 day summer slide! I missed the window to ship a week after issue 138 (Misfits anyone?) the last Sunday when I returned from Grinduro Scotland. Man that was a blast! And I've been playing catch up since!
Lucky for me, there has been heaps to justify slipping on shipping:
- Eurobike! Scroll down to most recent #Twotoneclients post for highlights & recaps. Despite the bummer buzz about the show, we had a successful sojourn to Lake Constance.
- Grinduro was an even bigger blast and dryer than last year! Scope out our insta story highlights!
- Oakley Cycling Tour Finale,watch our insta stories here & a radical recap video in FB here.
- A Treehouse! I started building one in my backyard since school is out. Kinda audacious summer project but its comin' together. Check it out!
- The 1st Silk Road Mountain Race begins in 3 weeks! I'm rolling on my Lester Cycles and have a lot of preparing to do!
If you have summer highlights that could be good for the newsletter, hit reply and let me know!
As always thank you for reading,
Enjoy these issues?
🙏 Sharing is caring!

Lesson 1: Use probabilities instead of words to avoid misinterpretation.
A lot of the common wisdom we have about working together is wrong.
Rather than investing in a “happiness” culture, companies should think about career opportunities and fostering trust between management and employees.

Establishing urgency doesn’t need to be difficult.
The Functional Threshold Power is the maximum power you can currently produce for an hour. But no one likes to do a perfectly paced 1 hour time trial, so the 20 minute FTP-test was developed. Simply put: You do a 20 minute all-out test and take the average power from those 20 and subtract 5% to produce your current FTP number.
Every bike enthusiasts who’s interested in participating will need to perform one 20-minute FTP test per month and upload it for our engineers to work on. Only Android users in EU are invited at this time. We will provide the Zpider power meter at an unusually low price of €250 plus a monthly fee of €10 for 12 months. Accessories such as chainrings and bottom brackets will also be available.
