If you've ever wondered how your bike got spec'd -- how the parts that it comes with were chosen and what negotiations, politics (yes, politics), innovations went into its design and execution -- this episode is for you. Dave Koesel, currently General Manager of 3T America, was in charge of product management for many years at Felt, and brings a lot of experience and wisdom to this conversation with CyclingTips Technical Editor James Huang and co-host Elden Nelson.
This is the second of two conversations we had with Floyd. Part 1 was mostly conversation about where Floyd is and what he’s doing now. This time, we go more into the bike…and also, we brought Floyd’s friend, partner at Floyd’s of Leadville, and former teammate — Dave Zabriskie. You won’t want to miss this wide-ranging conversation with these two as CyclingTips US editor Neal Rogers talks about disc brakes, bickering in the pro peloton, parakeets, Dave and Floyd’s perspective on their racing days, and a lot more.
