This week's podcast sifts through the week in bicycle news — from a muddy cyclocross worlds to Adrien Costa's decision to step away from the sport — before taking a deep dive into two of James Huang's recent reviews.

The week in bicycles was full of racing news. Colombia Oro y Paz, a new stage race, set off on Monday, as did the Dubai Tour, the first opportunity for the world's top sprinters to go head-to-head. Cyclocross worlds wrapped up on Sunday with a somewhat surprising victory, and one of America's brightest young talents, Adrien Costa, has decided not to race for Hagens Berman Axeon in 2018.

The Angry Asian (our very own James Huang) isn't angry about people who ride with headphones, but he is a bit disappointed in them. James recently tested a solution: bone-conduction headphones. We find out whether they really work, and let James get a bit ranty while we're at it.

Finally, James recently finished up a two-year (yes, two years) test of Trek's aero Madone. What did he learn from living with the bike for that long? Has his view of aero bikes changed?

    I definitely do the right ear bud thing. I can hear cars from behind just fine like this. I don’t really get the distraction argument. It’s no different than listening to music in a car or putting earplugs in on your motorcycle.
