AJA #20: The Pipeline Problem
Listen now
Description
It's a strange time to be in the bike industry. Pro teams are scrounging for components. New frames are hard to come by. Bike shops are swamped with extraordinary demand, but nothing to sell. So in this AJA episode, Josh brings a ton of practical insight into making the best of a problematic pipeline.  We also talk about how Silca goes about greenlighting a new product, marginal gains on gravel, and what Josh really wants marginal gainers to think about when we're on our bikes.
