Geek Warning: 750D wheels and questionable cockpits

James and Dave, united in a room.

This week’s Geek Warning episode sees James and Dave hanging out in a hotel room together with plenty to talk about and not enough sleep to do it professionally.

The MADE show is on the horizon, and James and Dave touch on some of the things they expect to see. There’s a good conversation about the restraints that modern road design is forcing on consumers. And of course, much more.
