Episode 11: Time of Year for New Gear! & Base Builder Week 7

We’re on location this week at The Bikery at the Brewery… a great new bike shop located on the Breckenridge Brewery property in Littleton, Colorado. Our guest is co-owner, Justin Mattison, ex-DH racer turned bike-fit specialist and bicycle know-how guru; so naturally… we talk bikes.

Fall is the best time of year to maintain & upgrade your current bike, or consider selling and buying a new machine for your next season. We discuss both options to help you decide. Making those additions & changes now go a long way to relieving stress and the possibility of failures down the road when you’re focus is on training and racing. We also talk about some of the new technology we’re most excited about for 2020, as well as the importance of a good bike fit.

We even learned a killer new (to us at least) “chain rotation strategy” from Justin to keep your bike running better for longer! Also take Kathy’s advice and think: new year, new chamois, as “no one wants to see your butt crack!”

We wrap up the show as always with a peek into week number 7 of our Base Builder Training Program. Haven’t joined us yet and gotten your base training efforts on track for 2020? What are you waiting for?! Keep reading to learn how you can get on board and start building your base!

Thank you to Justin and the Bikery ( for inviting us to the shop and sharing good conversation. If you’re in the Denver area looking to upgrade your ride, or thinking of getting a sweet new SCOTT bike for 2020, these are your guys!
