Podcast: Recalls, weird brand choices, and more recalls

Is a safe bicycle too much to ask for?

This week’s Geek Warning has James, Ronan, and Dave covering a broad range of topics from Fulcrum’s new road wheels, a new airless tyre, and a tyre that’s recalled for being unwantedly airless.

There’s also a surprising amount of chat about e-bikes, but perhaps not for the right reasons. There’s the new Moots entering the space, but not with its expected material. Rad Power promises safer batteries, which is great, but also feels late. And yet another recall has us asking whether cheap e-bikes are a responsible product.

You can listen on iTunesSpotify, or wherever you get your podcasts. Or click play below.

Of course, we have more over on the whole Escape Collective podcast network.
