Nerd Alert Podcast: ‘Ask a mechanic’ returns, Zwift cheating, and MTBs

by Dave Rome


In our latest episode of Nerd Alert, we kick things off with a discussion of Strava’s recent announcement and what it means for the company and its many, many users.

We then talk about the new Cannondale Scalpel, a bike that blends some old concepts into an extremely modern bike.

The conversation then moves to talk cheating in Zwift, and how the company is working to overcome the fairly common issues.

Finally, we welcome back our resident pro mechanic, Zac Edwards, who returns along with our popular “Ask a mechanic” segment. Here we go full-nerd reminiscing about the old weight-weenie days and discuss sticky SRAM levers, stuck freehub bodies, and then bicker about chain waxing, bar taping methods, and adapting existing wheels to Boost spacing.
