The Pedalshift Project 264: Holiday Bike Draft 2021

It’s the most wonderful time of the year, or so the song goes… so let’s gather ’round the Zoom and warm up with our friends from the Land of Sunshine and Bunnies at the Sprocket Podcast, and compete in our semi-regular bike draft! Armando, Joan, Aaron and I pick seven rounds of bike touring gear to see who has the best setup… just in time for the holidays!
