Nerd Alert Podcast: Pretty paint, SRAM’s wild patent, and What Bike to Buy

by Dave Rome


Nerd Alert is back, our podcast dedicated to the world of cycling tech. This time we geek out about SRAM’s new wild front derailleur patent and SRAM’s move to a 52T cog on Eagle.

The conversation then moves to an interview between our global tech editor James Huang and Trek’s senior product graphic designer, Micah Moran. The two talk how graphics and paint schemes come to be, and why competing brands tend to follow similar trends.

Finally, we finish the episode with the return of our What Bike to Buy segment. Here we give our picks for a bike that’s suitable for road and smooth gravel.
