Anna’s amazing and highly entertaining Builder on Builder interview series continues, with each interviewee turning the table on the next subject, giving us a unique look inside the world (and minds) of custom bicycle builders. This week we heard from Megan Dean, Richard Sachs, Burnsey, Curtis Inglis and Portus.

Out on the bike, we hit two amazing destinations worthy of the bucket list. Zach hit Park City, UT, as fall hit, giving him a different perspective on the scene than our usual summer riding there. Check out the food scene and other incredible amenities the city has put together to make it a cycling destination like no other (hundreds of miles of connected singletrack certainly doesn’t hurt either). Across the world, Jayson took part in the Taiwan KOM, a hill climbing challenge that takes riders from sea level to over 10,000 feet to see who’s the best ascender on the island.

In product news, highlights included a reboot of Christini’s AWD bikes, Light & Motion’s move into drones (to light up that high flying footage), and the sad news that Brim Brothers won’t be able to deliver on their shoe-based power meter. Everything else linked below…
