The fifth element - magnesium stages a comeback
We’ve said before that we’re in a “golden age” of chain lube these days, with big advancements in recent months that not only reduce drivetrain friction but dramatically extend the lifespan of your components, too. We discuss the latest releases from CeramicSpeed and Silca — one for wet conditions, the other for dry — and make the argument for why they’re actually better bargains than you might think. We’re also on the cusp of a potentially big revolution in frame materials, with magnesium finally emerging (after multiple attempts in the past) as a truly viable alternative to carbon fiber, aluminum, titanium, and steel. James chats with Bruno Maier, the president of “Super Magnesium” maker Allite Inc., to find out exactly why magnesium is so promising, and why this time around might be different than before. James has already reviewed the new Vaast gravel bike if you're interested in reading about that. Finally, we cap off this episode with another round of Ask a Mechanic — albeit, without our resident pro mechanic, Zach Edwards, who we were sadly stuck in a giant vat of tubular glue while we recording. How do you true a wheel without a truing stand? How long will that spare tube last in your saddle pack? Is it safe to use a cheap bearing press? Can you bend a steel frame back into shape after a crash? And why are any of us still taking mechanical advice from Caley? All of these answers and more await within, and maybe next time we’ll actually find that mute button on Caley’s mic.

29: Daniel Holloway: Surviving the Six Days
Daniel Holloway is a professional cyclist who races for Texas Roadhouse and is a 20 x US National Champion, a Pan Am Games gold medalist, and a member of the US National Long team for the 2021 Olympics in Tokyo. I met Daniel when he was a junior racing on the track, sometime around 2004. Years later, when I had the opportunity to race some of the European six days, I needed a partner, and Daniel ended up being the man for the job. He was one of the youngest riders in the field at our first Six Day in Dortmund, and I was one of the older riders in the peloton. I think it is quite accurate to say we really had no idea what the hell we were doing. Together we stumbled our way through 4 seasons of racing Sixes, World Cups, and World Championships together. We had wins, crashes, DNF’s, lots of laughs, and one moment that was pretty close to a fistfight. I thought having Daniel on the show would be the perfect excuse to tell some entertaining stories, and also to help my audience understand the archaic and iconic world of European Six Day racing.  Texas Roadhouse Cycling Team | Elite Bicycle Racing Team https://texasroadhousecycling.com PEZ Talk: Six Day Man Colby Pearce – PezCycling News https://pezcyclingnews.com/amp/interviews/pez-talk-six-day-man-colby-pearce/ The Time Capsule: Colby Pearce - An American Team in the Six Days https://www.veloveritas.co.uk/2011/02/11/colby-pearce-time-capsule/ Six Day Cycling - Hong Kong 2019 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0aoN8XDHM4c

145 Prepping Your Best Performance in 2021
Let’s set a framework for 2021 and to do so, it's important to know that what you do in the next nine to 12 weeks will likely determine your performance success for all of 2021. This year especially, you cannot rely on re-running prior experiences or approaches to thrive going forward. You must learn lessons from adversity, plan within the context of your realities, and you must deploy some incremental aspects of your performance that -- perhaps -- were not important to you in prior years. This episode is all about the Postseason, or the Preparatory Phase. We don't train in the upcoming months. Instead, we prepare to train for the year ahead. How? * Providing specific focus and action items to focus on NOW -- and the coming two-three months. * Ensuring that our training and habit creation in the coming weeks and months are not rushed. * Applying focus with a long-term lens. * Developing a mindset of preparing the body to do the work over DOING the work. Matt dives into two case studies of real-life athletes who have vastly different goals for 2021, but must employ a similar approach and athletic mindset to develop skills, resilience, and consistency. If this part is done well, then the actual goal you establish will yield great joy, but it is who and what you become as you navigate the journey that is the most important yield. Keep this in mind, as this is the gold!
