The Double Grind | Trombley Begins


In this episode of The Double Grind Michael and Craig chat with Seattle-area gravel veteran Robert Trombley about Dirty Kanza, gravel and endurance rides, and gear. Other discussion topics include: condom colored chain wax, comebacks, what we rode, what we gonna ride, and Chef Craig tolerates the Oddly Incompetent Middle-Aged Man and maybe teaches us how to cook some carrots well. Plus we grind up some products to let you know what’s cool and what sucks.
