Episode 65 - MTB Engineering with Yeti's Peter "Stretch" Zawistowski

Designing, testing and producing a mountain bike is an enormously complex process. It delivers an end product that often times gets watered down by reviews to terms like “longer, lower, slacker”, and “modern geometry”, keeping the original intent and nuance of the bike occulted from the would-be buyer.

Yeti’s Peter “Stretch" Zawistowski has a way of making complex topics seem simple while still giving you all the detail you need to understand what goes into making a bike perform the way it does. This episode goes deep, then doses you with enough simplicity to make it all logical.

Listen, get smart, enjoy a convo with the one of the leading minds in bike engineering, and head over to our Instagram to see a diagram that Stretch worked up to illustrate the crucial datapoint of “mechanical trail”.
