The Dose of Fat – Show #128 – New Cast with Special Guest Joe Meiser from Salsa

Presents

It’s the Vernal Equinox Episode of the Dose of Fat Podcast. The Weekly and then Occasional and now roughly ‘monthly’ – Dose of Fat is our first and most prolific podcast that has gone through a few upgrades over the summer. We have two new cast members, Spinner and Leia, along with one holdover from the old show, that would be me…your uncle gomez. The show has moved into a posh radio studio, with a control room and a land phone line…..so you know what that means! That means we’ll soon be talking with our Fatbassodors from all of the Fat-Bike Hot Spots from around the globe! So buckle your seatbelts and get ready to meet the new voices of Fat-Bike Radio! Oh and we also talk with the Top Dog at Salsa Cycles, Joe Meiser about why they’re equipping the Beargrease with 27.5 x 4 wheels this year.

The Weekly Dose of Fat is brought to you by the evil genius of Surly Bikes. Learn more about bikes, parts and chaos at – http://surlybikes.com

    YEP! That was awesome! I’ve been chick’d by Leia multiple times, she’s flipping fast, I just feel bad that my sloth like pace may not contribute the 3 watt tax she it’s looking to collect.
