The Gary Fisher Arc Pro is currently one of the top road bicycles in his stable, with an Aluminum main frame and carbon seat stays.  But for 2010, he’s got some all-carbon beasts to unleash…listen to him explain it all and what he’s riding right now.

Chris Wehan from Look Cycles USA runs down the what and why behind the launch of an “entry level” road bike.  We’re currently reviewing this bike, and all I can say is there ain’t much about it that’s entry level, making it a bargain for $2,699 MSRP USD.

Lastly, we speak with JP Kemmick, the founder of the Trek to Re-Energize America, a bicycle ride for people from every state to hop on thier bikes and end up in Washington, D.C., this summer to promote cycling advocacy and impress upon our elected officials the importance of including bikes in our transportation plans for the future.

Cycle to Washington, DC. In 1976. I started in the SEA-TAC A/P and cycle to Seattle to get a jump start. 30 days and 3,000 miles later I was in the area. I did 2 160 miles days. I was just under the age of 45. I was cycling sole and spending my nights in fire station, jails or EMS stations. I was a volunteer for 29 years.
