Episode Summary

We’re back with an extra-long episode! Steven outlines his guide to discovering Mechanical Trail, team rumors, the outlandish Trust The Message fork, a discussion on Red Bull Rampage, OZ Trails Off-Road and why it was so hard on equipment, a whole bunch of listener questions, the Vorsprung Luftkappe, and why blinky lights are actually a good idea.

Steven’s Mechanical Trail formula

Mechanical Trail = Tire Radius x COS(Head Angle) - Fork Offset

See our Instagram for a diagram that explains this formula.
