Podcast #091 – Here’s how the cycling industry could be better

bikerumor podcast interview with randall jacobs about what is wrong with the cycling industry

There are a lot of candid conversations that happen when industry folks get together, and one of my favorite people to chat with is Randall Jacobs, founder of Thesis Bikes and Lōgōs Components.

Before he launched those brands, he worked for others and helped develop some interesting technologies that you may or may not see in future products. Whether you do or don’t isn’t the point, though, it’s really about why you haven’t seen them already.

There’s a lot of stuff that happens behind the scenes of product development, and in this episode we talk about how things work, why bikes aren’t as advanced as they could be, and why the patent process really needs an overhaul.

This one might rattle a few cages, but I think you’ll really enjoy this inside look at the bike industry. Enjoy!
