On this episode of the Dose of Fat, Leia, Spinner and Gomez talk to Mike Repyak from IMBA Trail Solutions about visioning and gnome husbandry. Then the crew talks with Alaskan badass Tazlina Mannix. Tazlina won both the Susitna 100 and White Mtns 100 earlier this year. We close the show with some freestyle trash talk that manifests itself into a race challenge to the Full Spectrum Cycling Podcast on-air personalities. Will they rise to the challenge? Or perhaps we could engage them in a game of Scrabble?

Just an old cat that rides bikes, herds pixels, ropes gnomes and sometimes writes stories. I love a good story.


  1. Great show, interviews get better and better! Best be careful though, towards the end it almost felt like a BBR show was about to break out, not that I would mind!

    PS – As a FIB, I take no offence to you ripping into Arlington Heights, and though I do LOVE cheese curds, I don’t believe I could maintain a conversation about them for more than 5 minutes.

    Cheers from south of the DMZ!
