This week's episode kicks off with a roundup of last weekend's national championships, which occurred across much of Europe and in North America, before diving into a new helmet test that attempts to rank popular helmets not for weight or aerodynamics but for how safe they are. Surprisingly, that's a novel concept. 

Finally, an interview with the author of a book about Greg LeMond's comeback from being shot while turkey hunting in 1987.

It's all tech, all the time this week. Caley Fretz and James Huang are joined by Dave Rome to run through the future of road drivetrains from all three major manufacturers, plus a look at players trying to break in like FSA and Rotor. 

Plus, plenty of hate for closed-off standards, 1x drivetrains that are dropping chains, and electronics that just won't work. No drivetrain company escapes our ire this week.

James Huang thinks you have enough bikes. Do you? For years we've believed in N+1, the equation that dictates that the correct number of bicycles to own is the number you currently own (N), plus one. But bikes are more versatile than ever, and that means maybe you don't need +1. Maybe N is enough. 

Plus, Neal Rogers and Caley Fretz break down the Criterium du Dauphine, including Team's Sky's dominant performance and Geraint Thomas' chances of riding for himself at the Tour de France.

The Dauphiné used as a final test for bikes and equipment before the Tour de France. So what have we seen? What does it mean? We run through the latest goodies from France.

Then, we dig into the controversy that came out of Dirty Kanza last weekend. Kanza is the world's premier gravel event, and is growing rapidly. That's led to some growing pains. 

eBikes are coming. In many places, they're already here. James Huang and Caley Fretz sit down with two experts in the field to run through the arguments for and against their use on- and off-road.
