The Outspoken Cyclist – 01/25/2014

When we think of Detroit, we used to think about the manufacture of automobiles. It is the Motor City, after all. Today, Detroit usually brings to mind images of large-scale blight and municipal bankruptcy. However, Shinola, a small bike, watch and leather goods company is working to be part of Detroit’s rebirth in the post-Rust Belt era. A few weeks ago, we spoke with Ricard Schwinn, whose Wisconsin-based company is building Shinola’s frames. This week, we get to talk with the designer of Shinola bikes, Sky Yaeger. Sky has a long history in the bike biz, including 17 years with Bianchi, and now she’s helping bring a new brand onto the scene.

After a break and some news, we wrap up with a short conversation with USA Triathlon‘s Lindsay Wyskowski, who talks about the current state of the multi-sport world including the relatively new off-road triathlon.
