We’ve all been there—having coffee with someone whose life has crashed in on them, one hardship and loss after another. A second friend enjoying the java pulls out the Christian cliches for the moment. “God will never give you more than you can handle, you know.” Followed up with, “Everything happens for a reason, and whenever God closes a door He opens a window.” These phrases have to be in the Bible, right? In reality, the Bible is full of passages, prayers, and stories that show us the truth that life in this world is incredibly difficult, and at times and for some people, more than they can bear. Furthermore, some of the passages are clear that God is the ultimate and providential source behind the hardships that crush. In fact, Paul so much as confesses that the weight of their suffering and persecution was way more than he could handle. There is a real danger in trite hopeful words because they do not honor the suffering nor do they picture God honestly. Rather, what is promised in Scripture is that when we come to the end of ourselves what we find, or more importantly who we find there, will give us a hope that is much greater than the hollow promise that God will never give you more than you can handle.

Sometimes surprising discoveries happen when scientists aren't looking for them. While analyzing biological samples from California Condors as part of a conservation effort, a team at San Diego Zoo Wildlife Alliance discovered an unusual phenomenon: two condors born in captivity that contained only maternal DNA. This startling observation confirmed a rare event known as facultative parthenogenesis - a form of asexual reproduction in females that typically reproduce sexually. From that team, Dr. Oliver Ryder joins the Lab Out Loud podcast to discuss his work in conservation biology, how his team made this discovery, and what implications it might have for the endangered California Condor and other species. About Our Guest Dr. Oliver Ryder, Ph.D., is the Kleberg Endowed Director of Conservation Genetics at the San Diego Zoo Wildlife Alliance, where he oversees research activities in the areas of molecular genetics, genomic studies, and genetic rescue efforts, including stem cell applications – all focused on reducing extinction risk and contributing to species recovery and sustainable populations.

As we continue our Bad Lip Reading series looking at ideas and phrases that are not in the Bible (although many believe they are), today we examine a phrase that sounds right: Let go and let God. If we believe in God’s sovereignty and providence, and if we believe we are saved by grace alone in Christ alone, isn’t this the logical response to life? On one level, of course it is. We go through hardships, difficulties, suffering but also struggle with sin and habits. Isn’t our faith based on trusting God and getting out of the way? But in another way, the sentiment that is actually being expressed in this phrase, the answer is no. The Bible actually never points us in the direction of faith without action. In fact, the Bible gives us the Law to remind us that faithful obedience is necessary to have an assured faith. The Bible is not opposed to effort, it is opposed to earning. God has provided everything in our redemption—salvation and sanctification are all of grace. Yet, we play a role by actively pursuing God in repentance, faith, and obedience. We have an active role to play, and Jesus invites us to walk—not to sit and wait on God.

One of the statements we hear in our culture is that God wants us to be happy. Another one that is closely tied to it is that in order to be happy, one should follow their heart. In other words, you do you. That might sound all well and good but as we’ll see this morning, Scripture doesn’t agree. In fact, your heart shouldn’t be trusted. However, that doesn’t answer our main question this morning. Doesn’t God want us to be happy? If not, what does God want for us?

Firmly gripping the hand of her five year old daughter Charlotte, Mary Ann Crabtree scanned the sea of men that crowded the docks, in San Francisco, looking for a familiar face. Her husband John, who had finally sent for them in New York, was nowhere to be seen and Mary Ann was nearly a professional when it came to accepting anxieties. Queens of the Mines features the authentic stories of gold rush women who blossomed from the camouflaged, twisted roots of California. In this episode, we meet the Nation's Darling and The Golden West's Gift to Vaudeville, California's 19th Century Queen of Captivation. I am Andrea Anderson, This is a true story from America's Largest Migration, The Gold Rush. This is Queens of the Mines. John Crabtree had left his family and position as a bookseller in New York and left for California in the search for gold in 1851, two years prior. His wife and daughter dutifully waited for his call, and when it had finally come, she sold the bookshop off Broadway, and made the exhaustive journey here to the Isthmus of Panama, crossing by land before picking up a second ship to California. Now, John Crabtree was nowhere to be found. Charlotte remained secluded while her and her mother were given a temporary home with a group of popular actors of the 19th century, including the Chapmans, and the child actress Sue Robinson, whom Mary Ann had befriended. In the Presidio of San Francisco, Mrs. Crabtree kept up with the trends and all of the glamourous and disheartening stories from the rough mining camps. The gossip finally came and Mary Ann heard that John had been seen living in a little town in the Sierra. People were becoming rich all around her, and she was raising Charlotte on her own. The wheels began to turn for Mary Ann. It was a brand new environment for the shrewd and thrifty woman, who was small in figure with an unshakeable will. Here, among the theatrical crowd and actors in San Francisco, a most tantalizing scene had presented itself. She zeroed in on the theatre gossip and dreamt up a career of stardom for her cheerful, animated daughter, Charlotte, or, like her mother called her, Lotta. Lotta had hair that was an even brighter red than Mary Ann's, and she was sturdy with roguish black eyes and an unquenchable laughter, yet she seemed far off from stage ready. During a celebration at her school near the Presidio, it was requested that Lotta sang Annie Laurie for the crowd. She barely made it to the platform before the young girl, to her mother's dismay, lost control and broke down, sobbing. She wept so hard and for so long, Mary Ann had to take her daughter home. That night in bed, Mary Ann went over her daughter's chances of success singing and dancing at the mines. The next morning, an optimistic letter vaguely mentioning a project involving gold, came from her husband John in the high Sierra's, from a town called Grass Valley. Although the letter had no mention of any progress, it was requested that Mrs. Crabtree and Lotta proceed to him at once. In California, anyone could make a dazzling fortune overnight. Mary Ann, battling skepticism and the prospect of a bonanza, packed their belongings. At dawn, Lotta stood by the luggage as her mother procured a place for two in a rickety, yet affordable stagecoach. The young girl slept much of the journey, but she awoke as they rolled past embers of a few dying fires where men were waking up. They moved into a torch lit shadowy settlement and Lotta observed the intimidating shapes that danced across the scene, cast by the torches. She was excited to see her father, it had been over two years since she had last seen him. She wondered if she would recognize him as he went to hug her? There was no embrace, John patted Lotta's head and took them to a hotel where they all shared a small bed for the night. That next morning, the family took a walk, admiring what the Sierra spring had to offer. Nestled in the rich green slopes, and fertile deep gullies they saw the promise of luck, as, towards the valley, melting snow fed the clearest streams they had ever seen. Already, men were attending their claims in an air of conquest, working tirelessly digging tunnels, sinking shafts, bridging gorges, and piping water in flumes across the foothills. John told his family stories of men literally stumbling upon rich mines, pulling gold out of the earth with a knife, and how he once left a claim prior to the "big strike." But luck had not been with John Crabtree. With all the excitement around them, John Crabtree only offered Mary Ann disappointment. Passing by peddlers with sealing wax, baubles and trinkets, and luxurious fabrics, Lotta approached a cart that held paperbacks, and ran her finger down the spine of a Dickens novel. She noticed if a vendor was not prosperous enough to possess mules, they carried their goods strapped into a pack that was worn on the shoulders. As Lotta looked at the books, John asked his wife “Why not keep a boarding house? Everyone spends lavishly here, and rich merchants in town need homes! We could do no less than get rich”. Mary Ann was disappointed, she was not familiar in the kitchen. In New York, she worked in upholstery and had a servant who did the household work and cooked. Yet, she still agreed. To Mary Ann's surprise, she did a fantastic job maintaining the boarding house and not to her surprise, John's participation quickly diminished as he wandered away to prospect, and Mary Ann continued her duties, and saved her money, in a pure atmosphere of rebellion. Two doors down from the Crabtrees, that summer in 1853, a famous showgirl moved in. It was not long before the woman had transformed the home into a true salon that was constantly abrupting with singing and laughter. Lotta soon attracted the attention of the eccentric woman who had a pet parrot and a monkey! Typically, Mary Ann would always keep her daughter Lotta under her watchful eye. By doing so, Lotta's life had been incredibly innocent. Yet Mary Ann was entirely lenient while Lotta was in company with this new, exotic companion, whose name was Lola Montez. The unlikely pair of Lola Montez and Lotta Crabtree became fast friends. In the parlor of the Montez home, Lola gave Lotta daily dance lessons and it was apparent that Lotta had a better sense of rhythm than Lola. Lotta learned fandangos and intricate ballet steps. Lola taught her the jigs reels and the Irish flings from her own childhood. She gave the young child singing lessons, teaching her ballads and Lotta was allowed to play in Lola's trunk of stage costumes, and play Lola's German music box. Lotta fit right in as she mingled with the trolling players, entertainers and witty theatrical company visiting the star. Lola Montez had recognized genuine talent compared to her force of personality and encouraged Lotta's enthusiasm for the performance. They did not stop at the indoors, Lola also taught Lotta to ride horseback. On one sunny morning, the two went for a ride, Lola on a horse and Lotta on a pony. They ended up in the town of Rough and Ready, where huge fortunes were gambled away, recklessly. The street was lined by gaming houses and saloons with bullet-riddled ceilings. Lola and Lotta sauntered in to one. Lola stood Lotta on a blacksmith's anvil, and they young child danced for the group of miners that sat at the bar. It was a refreshing change for the men, who considered the small child a hit. Irishmen made up a sizable fraction of the miners, Lotta's jigs had reminded them of home. They threw a more than generous amount of gold nuggets at her feet. Lola brought the gold home to Mary Ann and declared Lotta should go with her to Paris. The next morning, John reappeared. With the news that they were again moving, forty miles north of Grass Valley, to Rabbit Creek. Mary Ann was not happy, compared to the somewhat civilized, law-abiding Grass Valley, Rabbit Creek was a small but busy and violent camp where murders were as frequent as each pocket of gold was found and exploited. When the family arrived, John found the hardier characters had found the ground first, and he eventually found nothing. There was an intense drought that summer which affected the prospectors, who needed water for washing gold. John chose to spend his time drinking in the saloons and rambling away mysteriously on quote unquote prospecting missions. Without his support for months, Mary Ann's only option was to open another boarding house, which she did, that winter. That is when the italian Mart Taylor, a musician and dancer arrived in Rabbit Creek. He was tall and had a graceful figure, with long hair and piercing black eyes. He opened a saloon with a connecting makeshift theatre. When the business slowed in the saloon during the afternoons, Taylor conducted a dancing school for children. His first prerequisite was music and he was impressed by the 8 year old red-haired girl. Her eyes would flash as her small feet traced the intricate steps he taught her. She looked six years old, and he knew she could be a sensation with the audiences who were eager for child performers. Taylor gave her a place to exhibit her talents before the miners. He played the guitar and hired a fiddler and Mrs. Crabtree played the triangle. Lotta Crabtree had become a nightly attraction, dressed in a green tail-coat, knee breeches, tall hat and brogans her mother sewed. Lotta would often get stage fright, and it would show when she shoved her hands in her pockets. So Mary Ann, sewed them shut. She danced jig after jig only pausing to change costumes. At the finale, she would return to a storm of applause to then sing a ballad. Lotta Crabtree would shake the house with emotion. Gold nuggets shone at her feet. She completed the repertoire for the company, and her family now had more money than ever. Naturally, Mrs. Crabtree became her daughter's manager. Few child stars had training, and Lotta, was trained by Lola Montez. She would be a gold mine. Once the roads had reopened in the spring, Lola Montez rode over to Rabbit Creek to see her protege. Lola was to go on tour to Australia and wanted to bring little Lotta with her. Mary Ann saw a future for Lotta with Mart Taylor, who she had become fast friends with, and declined. Mary Ann then made the most of her refusal to Lola's request to take the child to Australia, this even furthered Lotta's growing reputation. That summer, Mary Ann discovered that she was to have another child and Lotta's baby brother, John Ashworth, was born, just as John Sr. returned home. Lotta continued to work for Taylor while her mother recovered. After years of performing in Rabbit Creek, the next move seemed obvious to Mary Ann, Lotta should tour the mines. On a late spring morning in 1856, Mary Ann left her husband John three loaves of fresh bread, a kettle of beans and a goodbye note. They left with Taylor's troupe, traveling by wagon, Lotta sat next to her mother with her baby brother in her arms. As they toured in the California mining camps, Lotta started to make a name for herself as a dancer, singer, and banjo player in saloons. For an audience of men, whom she had never seen before, on a makeshift stage set up on sawhorses with candles stuffed into bottles served as footlights arranged along the outer edge. Mary Ann never had a moment to relax, traveling the dangerous higher Sierra by horseback, trees snapping and blocking their path, and boulders, rolling down mountain sides, after being loosened by mining operations. The 8 year old Lotta, watched as a lone rider, far ahead, plunged into the bottom of an abyss in front of her eyes. Once she lay ducked on the floor after one performance, in their room, as bullets burst through the canvas walls while a brawl from the opposite side of the hotel commenced. Yet Mary Ann remained cool, and kept Lotta in good spirits. Mary Ann would coax Lotta, telling her funny stories and persuading her for an hour or more and even when it was time for the stage, Mary Ann always had to give Lotta a little push to get her on the stage. Once onstage, Lotta would perfectly execute her Irish jig. At every performance's conclusion, Lotta would appear angelically. A face scrubbed clean, hair smoothly combed, a white dress with puffed sleeves while Mary Ann, exhausted from costuming, coaching, and playing the triangle, collected the gold in a basket, scraping every fragment of dust from the boards. Mary Ann Crabtree was her daughter's mentor. Using the knowledge she had picked up by observing the actors she met in the Presidio and at the home of Montez. She distrusted theatre folk at heart but would listen to every word, resisting its attraction. But if she mistrusted its people she did not mistrust the theatre itself. As busy as Mary Ann was, she still found time to become pregnant again, with another younger brother for Lotta. Taylor's company was then forced to break up in Weaverville. Mart Taylor took Lotta's brother, Ashworth jr. to San Francisco and Lotta was sent to stay with the family of James Ryan Talbot, who was a pioneer, in Eureka. In the Talbot household in Eureka, Lotta thoroughly enjoyed life, and would go through her acts as in a game for the other children and would frolic and song the stage Irish song Barney Brallaghan," I've a howl in my heart big enough to roll a cabbage round in". Mary Ann's health had finally permitted her to go to Lotta in Eureka in the spring of 1856, where she gathered her and her belongings. Mary Ann, Lotta and her newest brother, George then caught a schooner to San Francisco. In San Francisco, gamblers crowded the halls, natives rode on spirited horses through the streets, and silk lined carriages dashed around. The city had become legendarily violent. Charles Cora had just been hanged for the murder of the United States Marshal Richardson by the second Vigilance Committee, yet the days of lawlessness were not yet gone. The exuberant scene was exciting for Mary Ann, and Lotta was more than impressed. San Francisco had grown to bold proportions, with longer wharves, and elaborate buildings and it did not seem to be the same city Mary Ann left years ago. Lotta followed her mother into the Bella Union, eyeing the women in lurid clothes who were dealing cards to a group of shady men. Taken backstage quickly, Lotta performed, Mary Ann got paid, and took her away before the wild atmosphere of the saloon could leave a lasting impression. At least that's what she hoped for. Mary Ann was booking Lotta all over the city, enforcing the hard bargains she drove, hungry for gold yet still protecting Lotta passionately. When Lotta appeared in The Dumb Belle, Lotta was to carry a bottle onstage, place it on a table and exit, there was an older actresses who insisted on having the role but Mrs. Crabtree was sure to not let it happen. Mary Ann instructed Lotta to do an elaborate pantomime that in itself, became its own act. The audience showered the stage with money and roared with laughter. Lotta wasn't going anywhere. She was an instantaneous success with great audience-drawing power. The family started touring, first traveling by schooner across the bay, then up shallow Petaluma Creek, carrying Lotta's costumes in champagne baskets, and all of Lotta's earnings in gold, in a large leather bag. The shrewd Mary Ann did not trust banks nor paper money. When this became too heavy, it was transferred to a steamer trunk. When the steamer trunk became too heavy, she invested Crabtree's earnings in local real estate, race horses and bonds. She made good profits in Sonoma County. Lotta was then in demand in the Sacramento and San Joaquin Valleys. She gained a new skill in Placerville when a skilled black breakdown dancer taught Lotta a vigorous and complicated soft-shoe dance. She also began smoking small, thinly rolled black cigars like her dear friend Lola. It was considered to be not a very lady-like thing yet it became a trademark for Lotta. She often, on stage and off, wore male clothes. The fact that Lotta smoked cigars kept her out of the prominent ladies social group, Sorosis. This infuriated Mary Ann. Lotta could also laugh at herself. She once slipped in the street and called out “prima donna in the gutter“. By 1859, she had become "Miss Lotta, the San Francisco Favorite", who mastered the suggestive double entendre long before Mae West. She played in Virginia City, and the famous Bird Cage Theater in Tombstone, Arizona then toured the east coast, acting in plays in theaters, a favorite for her portrayals of children due to her petite size. Her youthful appearance led The New York Times to call her “The eternal child” with "The face of a beautiful doll and the ways of a playful kitten, no one could wriggle more suggestively than Lotta." They also said in reference to her skills as a dancer, “What punctuation is to literature, legs are to Lotta”. By the end of the decade the "Lotta Polka" and "Lotta Gallup" was quite the rage in the United States. When Lotta sat down to write a letter to a friend in San Francisco in 1865 she wrote "We started out quite fresh, and so far things have been very prosperous. I am a continual success wherever I go. In some places I created quite a theatrical furor, as they call it. I have played with the biggest houses but never for so much money, for their prices are double. I'm a star, and that is sufficient, and I am making quite a name. But I treat all and every one with the greatest respect and that is not what everyone does, and in consequence I get my reward." In 1869 Lotta purchased a lot, on the south side of Turk street, east of Hyde, paying $7,000, a portion of her earnings at a recent show which would be 132k today. She began touring the nation with her own theatrical company in 1875, hitting the height of her success for another decade. Still a teenager she was shocking audiences by showing her legs and smoking on stage. Mary Ann was still managing her career, finding locations, organizing troupes of actors and booking plays,for the then highest-paid actress in America, who was earning sums of up to $5,000 per week, nearly 155K today. In September of 1875 she gave the city of San Francisco a gift of appreciation to the people, a fountain modeled after a lighthouse prop from one of her plays at the intersection of Market and Kearny streets. Politicians, respectable citizens and even hellions gathered to dedicate the city's new public drinking fountain. Lotta had many admirers, including the Grand Duke Alexis of Russia, and Brigham Young. She was proposed to many times but never married. From newspaper boys, European royalty, to lawyers and well known actors, Lotta time after time turned them down saying “I'm married to the stage”. Some said her mother would not allow it as it would end her ability to be considered forever young, and her career left little time for a social life. Some say she was only interested in women. It was whispered in the backstages of the theatres tha Adah Isaacs Menken ws Lotta's secret lover. Lotta was a bit of a rebel in her day,advocating women's rights and wearing skirts too short that she shook while laughing at society matrons. Lotta had many celebrity friends she was close with, including President Abraham Lincoln and his wife, the great Harry Houdini, President Ulysses S. Grant always made it a point to visit her whenever she was performing in Washington DC while he was president, and actor John Barrymore, who referred to Lotta as “ the queen of the American stage”. In New Orleans Lotta had “ The Lotta Baseball Club”. When Lotta came to visit they presented her with a gold medal and a beautiful banjo Lotta traveled to Europe with her mother and brothers, learning French, visiting museums and taking up painting. The people of San Francisco missed their very own star while she was away. After her tour ended, she went home to San Francisco to perform at the California Theatre. In 1883, The New York Times devoted much of its front page to "The Loves of Lotta." In 1885, Mary Ann had an 18-room summer cottage built in the Breslin Park section of Mount Arlington, New Jersey, as a gift for her daughter Lotta. It was a Queen Anne/Swiss chalet style lakefront estate on the shores of Lake Hopatcong. It sat on land that sloped down to Van Every Cove. It is 2-1/2 stories on the land side and 3-1/2 on the lake side. She named it Attol Tryst (Lotta spelled backward). They gave parties, rode horses, and pursued her painting. It's "upside-down" chimneys had corbels that flared outward near the top. There was an expansive porch, including a semi-circular section that traced the curve of the parlor, wrapping around three sides of the house. Inside, there was a wine cellar, music room, library, and a fireplace flanked by terra cotta dog-faced beasts. The billiard room's massive stone fireplace once featured a mosaic that spelled out LOTTA in gemstones. After a fall in the spring of 1889 while in Wilmington, Delaware, Lotta recovered lakeside and decided to retire permanently from the stage, at age 45. later resisting calls for a farewell tour. She was the richest actress in America and made quite a spectacle as one of the first women to own and drive her own car that she called “Red Rose”. She got out on top. During her retirement, Lotta traveled, painted and was active in charitable work. One final appearance was made in 1915 for Lotta Crabtree Day in San Francisco at the Panama-Pacific Exposition. Lotta was a vegetarian for years and took time to visit inmates in prisons. Mary Ann died and Lotta's serious side emerged. After Mary Ann's death, Lotta seriously wanted to have her sainted. But she eventually settled on having a $20,000 stained glass window decorated with angels made for her, which is today in St. Stephen's church in Chicago. The last 15 years of Lotta's life was spent living alone at the Brewster Hotel, which she had purchased in Boston, a dog at her feet, regularly traveling to Gloucester to paint seascapes, with a cigar in her teeth. She died at home on September 25, 1924 at age 76. She was described by critics as mischievous, unpredictable, impulsive, rattlebrained, teasing, piquant, rollicking, cheerful and devilish. Boston papers recalled Lotta as a devoted animal rights activist who wandered the streets, putting hats on horses to protect them from the sun. She was interred at the Woodlawn Cemetery in Bronx, New York. Lotta's Fountain still stands at the intersection of Market and Kearny streets in San Francisco. It is the oldest surviving monument in the City's collection. After the earthquake, it was a known gathering place and one of the only locations to get potable water in the city. It is the site of the anniversary of the 1906 San Francisco earthquake every April 18. She left an estate of some $4 million in a charitable trust for “anti-animal experimentation”, “trust to provide food, fuel and hospitalization for the poor”, “help for released convicts”, “support for poor, needy actors”,” aid to young graduates of agricultural colleges”, and “relief for needy vets of WWI”. Over 59 million today. The trust still exists today. The estate ran into complications when a number of people unsuccessfully contested the will, claiming to be relatives, and a woman claimed to be Lotta's adult child. A long series of court hearings followed. The famed Wyatt Earp even testified at one of the hearings, being a friend of the family. A medical exam was conducted at the autopsy and it was confirmed that Lotta Crabtree died a virgin. Lotta's legacy is not preserved as well as entertainers that came after her, no video or audio of her performing. She was the queen of the stage, but retired before the days of Hollywood. Lotta's influence is all around us today in the domino of effects from the money and support she has given to farmers, animals, prisoners, soldiers, and actors. Her style was groundbreaking, and helped shape modern entertainment. Her strong influence on animal rights, women's rights, and human rights have forever shaped society and she left a legacy of love with fountains, paintings, and by promoting the arts. Crabtree Hall, a dormitory at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, is named for Lotta. The Attol Tryst stands today and in recent years it has been restored. Lotta started the tradition of daytime performances for women and children, now commonly known as the afternoon matinee. Lotta was against wars, but very supportive of the members of the military, and America. Lotta has been credited as being an influence on Mary Pickford, Mae West, Betty Hutton, and Judy Garland. The Academy Award nominated 1951 movie musical “Golden Girl” was based on Lotta's exciting life, starring Hollywood Walk-Of-Famer, Mitzi Gaynor as Lotta. I am Andrea Anderson, thank you for taking the time to listen today, let's meet again when we continue the story of Lotta Crabtree, The Queen of Captivation Chapter 8 Part 2, next time, on “Queens of the Mines. In light of the BLM movement and the incredible change we are seeing, I would like to mention a quote said by Marian Anderson. "No matter how big a nation is, it is no stronger than its weakest people, and as long as you keep a person down, some part of you has to be down there to hold him down, so it means you cannot soar as you might otherwise." Until recently, historians and the public have dismissed "conflict history," and important elements that are absolutely necessary for understanding American history have sometimes been downplayed or virtually forgotten. If we do not incorporate racial and ethnic conflict in the presentation of the American experience, we will never understand how far we have come and how far we have to go. No matter how painful, we can only move forward by accepting the truth. Queens of the Mines was written, produced and narrated by me, Andrea Anderson.

We’ve all heard phrases that many assume are in the Bible, but actually are not. One of those is, “God helps those who help themselves.” George Barna tells us that 82% of Americans believe this is a verse in the Bible. This phrase is pretty much the basis for every human religion. It seems logical—God does his part, I do my part, everything works out in the end. Sadly, though, this idea is a lie from the lips of the old serpent himself. The only thing I contribute to my salvation is the sin that led to its need. The Reformation, led by Martin Luther was a theological revolution that at the core addressed this lie. Luther helped the church reclaim the central tenet of our redemption, that we are justified by the grace of God alone, and receive this only as helpless people who fall on God’s mercy through faith alone. The truth we will ultimately discover is that God helps those who realize they are unable to help themselves.

V’Nahafoch Hu, “The reverse occurred” as the ESV translates this Hebrew phrase from Esther 9:1 It literally means “it was turned upside down” or “the opposite happened”. When Jews celebrate Purim this phrase is at the center of the party. The kingdoms of this world seek to control and rule with power, influence, oppression, and fear. Yet, in the end, they all come and go—Persia is long gone, as is Greece and Rome who replaced it. But, in Persia lived the people of a different Kingdom whose King is always at work, even if in the shadows. There is always an upside down world, a Kingdom who works through weakness rather than power, love rather than fear, humility and grace rather than oppression and abuse. It is an upside down, inside out, forward back Kingdom that always stands against human kingdoms and powers. This Kingdom will not fall and will have the final say.

Is there any better feeling than trying on a new pair of jeans and finding the perfect fit? Of course not. We have a whole movie franchise based on how great of a sensation that is (Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, for those looking for a movie recommendation)! When it comes to staple wardrobe items—a good pair of jeans is at the top of the list. And surprisingly, we have the Gold Rush to thank for that.When Levi Strauss moved to California in the 1850s, he found a community of men bonding over the hard labor of mining for gold and the constant chafing of their thighs. Though gold could be found in the river, Levi realized that an empire could be built on land. He started a general store and his blue jeans took off. Strauss provided a service that supported the community of miners, and he created something that could bring them even closer together. Our guest today is doing much the same.Michael Gasiorek is the Head of Marketing at TrustToken, where he's created an entire community that's bonded over the only thing more powerful than chafing: cryptocurrency. He's mastered how to foster a close-knit community between CX leaders and their customers, and he's sharing how we can do the same. --------"Change is coming and it's going to ripple out through every possible financial sector. Money as we know it is going to change...I think it's going to increase accessibility to financial opportunity for all. It's going to chip away a little bit at the calcified centers of power.

Support the Podcast Join The Ridership Episode Sponsor: Athletic Greens Automated Transcription (please excuse the typos): 00:00:00] Craig Dalton: Hello and welcome to in the dirt from the gravel ride podcast. I'm your host. Craig dalton i'll be joined shortly by my co-host randall jacobs. [00:00:12] Today's episode is part two of our Q and a episode series. Go back in your feed, a couple episodes to find part one. You can certainly jump right into this episode as we're going question by question. And they don't necessarily. Have relation to one another but if you're interested in part one either after the fact or before you listened to this episode go ahead and jump back and listen to that episode. [00:00:36] Today's episode is brought to you by our friends at athletic greens. The health and wellness company that makes comprehensive daily nutrition really really simple.

[00:02:05] Athletic greens has agreed to give a free one year supply of vitamin D and five free travel packs to any gravel ride podcast listener. So be sure to visit athletic greens.com/the gravel ride. To give it a try today. With that said let's jump into part two of the q and a episode with randall [00:02:26] Craig: Next question was on optimizing the adjustment and float intention on SPD pedals. I don't think there's much we can add there cause it's a little bit of trial and error. In my opinion. I don't know about the float. I don't even know if mine has like float adjustment. For me it seems like it's just the tension. So I, how hard or easy it is to get in and out. And that's been something maybe I've amped up over time as I become more confident, but certainly starting them out with them. Fairly easy to disengage is perfectly acceptable if you're not comfortable with Clifton riding. [00:02:57] Randall: Yeah. In terms of tension, I would definitely start with a looser engagement and then tighten it down as you get more confident, Especially when you're first starting out. And what else? Patrick and I actually talked about this in the bike fit episode. Hey recommending shifting the cleats back. So if you're running mountain style shoes, which the gravel bike probably should be if you can run them in the back, the bolts to the back then sliding the cleat. Pretty much all the way to the back. Now if that doesn't feel right, you can always move it forward a little bit, but whereas this new real problem with going too far back there can be issues with going too far forward in terms of biomechanics and so on. And in terms of the float, you want to be in the middle of the float and you never want to be in a position where the you're you're not able to peddle in a natural motion where you're using the cleat positioning to restrict your motion. That is a a good way to end up with an injury. So definitely don't do that. I generally will start with the cleats. In a position where it's restricting my inward motion so that my heel can't hit the crank arm. And then I'll peddle from there and see am I in the middle, middle of the float? Am I in my restricted any part of the pedal stroke? And if not, then that's a good starting point. But to really get this right again it is hard to do this on your own. It's hard to see knee tracking. In souls or thing you want to invest in, in order to help align the full stack from hip to knee through the ankle. And this is where listen to the bike, fit 1 0 1 episode and consider working with a bike fitter. [00:04:30] Craig: I was just going to say the same thing. It's like one of those things like, oh, bike fit, you don't necessarily go to clique adjustment, but so often when I've observed it, cleat adjustment happens in a bike fit. [00:04:41] Randall: And it doesn't happen first, right? Everything else has to be right first. So if your saddle's too low and your arches are collapsing and things like that, you're already starting with things out of alignment and are going to have some trouble, but at least the advice that, that I just gave will prevent the worst issues. But again, go get a bike fit. [00:05:01] Craig: Yep. [00:05:02] The next [00:05:02] question. Yeah, The next question. [00:05:05] was about what's the best technique for using a dropper post? How does this help with the physics of the ride? [00:05:14] Randall: I'll let you go first. I certainly have an opinion on this one. [00:05:17] Craig: This is a dangerous one for us. The listener, the avid listener knows we can go into a deep dropper post where I'm whole, but let's try to offer some quick advice. One of the things I like to remind people about with respect to drop her posts is that it's not just a, all the way up or all the way down product. You've got the full spectrum of range, which means you should use it frequently. Obviously when you're in heavy tactical descents with steep, dicentric, you're going to slam it. [00:05:45] But I quite frequently lower it just a centimeter to just give myself a little bit more room on terrain. Maybe it's a road descent or something that I'm super confident on, but it gives me a little bit more margin for error. And as I'm feeling maybe more nervous about the speed. I'll go down even further just to give myself again a bigger range of just a bigger margin of error. So practice, and no, there's no right or wrong, use it frequently and you'll figure out what feels best for you. [00:06:15] Randall: You've seen my technique with the dropper. I'm a bit more extreme. So for me, I use the dropper all the time. I have it down all the way on a high-speed road descent, and I use it to allow me to, move my mass around on the bike in a way where, if I want the front end to be more planted, I can put more mass on the bars, but then I can shift my weight down and back over the rear axle to lighten up the front end for say, traversing, really rough terrain. Provides that distance between the bike and the body where your arms and legs can act as suspension. Your front wheel is rolling in sailing. Your rear is doing more of your speed control. And in this way, it really radically. Improves the capability of the bike, not just off-road, but I would argue on road as well. I descend much faster because I know I can grab a handful of both brakes and not be pitching over the handlebars. So for me, even on the road, I'm dropping it all the way in a lot of situations. [00:07:08] Just because I like to go that much faster and it gives me that margin of safety. [00:07:12] Craig: All makes sense. Next off, we're going to an area work. Gosh, Randall I almost think we need an entirely new category in the ridership forum just about tires. What do you think? [00:07:25] Randall: We've been asked for this for a while. By the time this episode airs, if we don't have a channel in there, somebody yell at us in the forum, we'll get that up. [00:07:35] Craig: The first question comes again from Tom boss, from orange county unicorn tires, lightweight, puncture resistance, fast rolling with lots of grip. What comes closest for you? [00:07:45] Randall: I'm not getting in the weeds on this one. I defer to the hive-mind and the ridership on this. I can tell you what I ride. But I'm gonna make no claims about it being the optimal. [00:07:56] Craig: Yeah, do. What are you writing in these days? [00:07:58] Randall: so currently I'm writing just a WTB Sendero upfront and a venture in the rear. And these aren't especially fancy casings. They're not the most efficient tire. But they're pretty robust and they have great grip and I like the mullet setup. I'm a big fan of going with something NABI or upfront and like a file tread or even a semi slick, depending on your terrain in the back. [00:08:20] And yeah, that's the way that I go. We actually just brought in some maxes, Ramblers and receptors. So we go a rambler small knob front and a receptor in the back. And I like the six 50 by 47 size. There are situations where I wish I could have a little bit more volume, other situations where I wish I had a little bit more efficiency, which tells me that I'm right in the middle of the range for most of the writing that I do. [00:08:40] Craig: Yeah. For me. And first off, full disclosure to everybody, I'm a Panorai sir, brand ambassador. So I want to put that out there. The gravel king S K was a tire that I got on my first proper gravel bike. And I just fell in love with it. Then I left for many years and went on to more of a setup that you had rocking the Sandero up front. [00:09:01] Thinking I was, riding more challenging terrain and could appreciate the knobs, which I did. [00:09:06] But recently I've gone back to the gravel king as Kay. And I do find it to be a wonderful all around tire because I feel super fast on the road and it does everything that I needed to do in most of the situations that I get into. [00:09:21] Randall: Yeah, sounds about right. And then there's always, if you're, if you had a really long ride out to the trail you could always, bring the pressure up a smidge on the way out there and then give it a little at the the Trailhead. [00:09:34] Craig: Yeah. [00:09:34] And again, it obviously comes down to where you are and one thing I'll just note really quickly, and we've talked about it before is Riding fully select tires at a fat with has been remarkable to me how performance they can be. Off-road you think you need knobs, then all of a sudden you realize where you do need them, but actually if you change your riding style a little bit if you've got a fat rubber tire on there, you can go and do a lot of things. [00:09:59] Randall: Yeah, the dropper helps a lot with that. In terms of just being able to be more nuanced with your body English as you going over stuff. But yeah, I run 700 by 30 tubeless tires and I'll go out on hard road drives and then I'll pass it on to see a trail and be like, oh, what's over there, I must find out now and then to see. Go and do a little bit of adventuring. And you gotta pick, you gotta pick your lines. You gotta be careful not to hit anything, square, a square edge. That's gonna, bang up against your rim. But if you're if your pressure is high enough and you're gentle enough with your writing, you can do a remarkable amount. Most of the stuff that we've written in Marine together up written on slicks. [00:10:36] At one point. Yeah. [00:10:38] not saying it's a good idea, but it's doable. [00:10:41] Craig: True. And you enjoyed other parts of the ride and leaned into other parts of the ride, presumably more because that's, what the bike was oriented around on that particular day. And maybe you needed to nurse your way down Blazedale Ridge or something, but you got through it. [00:10:55] Randall: Yeah, and it's definitely more of an uphill thing than a downhill thing. [00:11:00] Craig: Yeah. [00:11:00] Randall: go uphill on dirt and then downhill on, on road, but okay. The, we went on a proper tangent there. [00:11:07] Craig: Yeah, sorry. next? [00:11:08] one. Next question is from Josh, from east Texas. It's around suppleness. Suppleness in tires is desired by riders. So how do I choose a simple tire without having to buy it and write it with no published measure of scale of suppleness on a given tire from the manufacturer we are left with only this tire field strop sample is TPI and indication. [00:11:30] Why don't manufacturers provide consumers with this information? [00:11:33] Randall: So I'm going to volunteer Ben Z and Marcus G in the forum as to people who seem to have written. Every tire I've ever heard of. And some that I haven't. And there are others in there that have as well. But yeah, I think this is a matter of finding out what other people like and kindly asking their opinion and experiences with it. [00:11:52] Craig: Exactly. I think that's a good recommendation. [00:11:55] Next question is from Tom Henkel and it's around tire pressure. He acknowledges that he tends to ride harder pressures than a lot of people seem to recommend, but he's also dented REMS and had to wrangle the, straighten them out enough to complete a ride. So he's nervous about bottoming out. How do you know how low is too low? Given the weight of the rider and width of the tire? Also, how does this vary by terrain type? [00:12:17] Randall: The indication of how low is too low is really. He's denting his rims. And pinch flatting as well you can have two riders of the same weight on the same tires at the same pressure on the same terrain, one we'll be a little bit better at picking lines or at shifting weight around. And we'll be able to push the limits a little bit more. But if you're ponderous and steamrolling through things, then you might need to run higher pressures in order not to bang the rims. Now, if you're not already running the highest volume tires that will fit in your frame, start there for sure. And if you are, and you don't want to have to replace your bike, tire inserts, which is something that we haven't really talked about much. And is in its early days in gravel, but it's increasingly popular in mountain bike. And I'll be getting a set of these to try out. Isaac S in the forum loves his and he rides hard. He used to ride his gravel bike like a full-on mountain bike, and even cracked a rim once, and after he put in inserts he never had any trouble and he was actually pushing his pressures even lower. So those would be the recommendations. I have go biggest volume. You can and get some tire inserts. [00:13:25] Craig: Yeah, that makes sense. [00:13:26] It's all trial and error and I am eager as, as well as the listener, I imagined to hear what you think of tire inserts. Cause I do think It's yet another interesting part of the equation that some riders may be able to play around with successfully. [00:13:40] Randall: Yeah, it has the same effect as adding a little bit of suspension. If you can drop the pressure that much lower and have a two tiered suspension effect where you have the travel of the lower pressure tire, and then right before it bottoms out on the rim, you have this protective layer. So yeah, I think it makes a ton of sense, conceptually. So I'm excited to try it. [00:13:58] Craig: Yeah, interesting stuff. [00:14:00] Next question is another one from Kim brown. How do you go around choosing the right tire for the ride? [00:14:05] I guess I make more like quarterly or seasonal decisions around this and live with it. I certainly have brought my beef feed set up bike two places in the middle of the country that didn't require such an aggressive setup. But it is what it is like I, I'm not super concerned but I imagine if you have the wherewithal and interest you can dig in and find the right tire for every single outing. [00:14:32] Randall: Yeah. And you definitely again see people who seem to do that. And that's great. For me. I have a bicycle company and I have two wheel sets and I leave the same tires on until they burn out. I'll even take the Sendero Nabil upfront and when it starts to wear a little bit too much, I'll just move it to the back and put on another Nabil upfront. [00:14:49] I mostly rabid I got, and I got the two we'll set. So I have 700 by 32 blitz and a six 50 by 47 mullet set up. And it's really more of a choice of which wheel package I'm going to go with then. Swapping around tires and things like that, which is a more seasonal or annual decision. [00:15:05] Craig: Yeah. [00:15:06] Yeah. Yeah. Same. [00:15:07] Next one is probably I could've sat in the maintenance section of this conversation, but how do I deal with a pinch flat or puncture or some other common issue in a tubeless tire? [00:15:16] Randall: Punctures. Dynaplugs, bacon strips. Make sure you have a good amount of sealant in there. And have a spare tube as a backup, if all that fails. If you've got a pinch flat in a tubeless tire if it's on the sidewall, then you know, you do what you can to get home. Sometimes a plug will work, but if it's in the sidewall, you're probably going to want to replace that tire versus in the meat of the tread where the rubber is a lot thicker, a plug can last for the remaining life of the tire. And last thing would be, if you really have a problem and you have a tear in the sidewall, a boot or even just jam putting a dollar bill or something in there so it doesn't continue to spread, just so you can get home, and maybe running lower pressure so it doesn't blow out the sidewall. [00:16:00] Craig: Yeah. [00:16:02] If we assume the question came from someone who knows how to change a two-bed tire and has been through that experience, just a couple of other things I would highlight that may not be known unless you've had to go through it. If you are replacing a tubeless tire with an inner tube, you do need to remove the valve core. [00:16:19] First. And you can expect that if you have ample sealant remaining in said tire. It's going to be a messy situation. [00:16:27] Randall: Yeah. [00:16:28] Craig: I don't know what the right thing to do is if you leave the sealant in there, but it's going to be all over you. It's going to be all over the place. It's just something you have to deal with as you get that tire and get your tube in there and find your way home. [00:16:41] Randall: Yeah, all the more reason to get plugs and just have plugs with you because oftentimes you can get by with those. [00:16:48] Craig: Yeah. A hundred percent. The first time you plug a tire, it's like a Eureka moment and you just top off the tire and continue on your way. And when it goes beyond that, then you're a very sad. And you will have to deal with quite a mess. [00:17:02] Randall: There's a picture that think Isaac in the forum shared where he had a hole plugged with eight different plugs in the sidewall and he kept riding it for a while apparently. So Bravo maybe change that casing a little bit sooner. So though. [00:17:18] Craig: Related to tires, we're going to move into a section on wheels. And matthew Wakeman ask, what kind of situations would be worth considering three wheel sets versus just two for do most of it? Bikes. [00:17:32] Randall: So my thinking is the first wheel set is probably a wide 700 that can take everything from road to gravel tires and then a even wider six 50, that's more focused on gravel and adventure riding. And then an even wider two Niner that would be your mountain bike setup now, then. Then, that's getting into two bikes. So you have two bikes, three wheel sets between them. If you're just with one bike for everything, then if you're racing or if you're constantly switching between very focused road experience to a fast, hard packed gravel experience to a rugged. Bike packing adventure sort of experience, then it would make sense to maybe have two, seven hundreds and 1 6 50 B. It really would be another 700 slotting in the middle. There. [00:18:22] Craig: Yeah, for me, it's really around. Tire selection on those wheel sets and yes, it would be a luxury and a full disclosure. I do have three wheel sets in the garage and I'm splitting hairs literally. It's because I'm too lazy to change the tire. And I have the luxury of having the third wheel so that so I've got my sort of NABI. Fairly narrow 700 C off-road sat that will only take me a limited amount of places from where I live. I've got my one that I spend most of my time on which presently is six 50 by 43. And then I've got a 700 with a 30 road tire on it. [00:18:59] And it's more like Totally when I only had two wheel sets, it was all good. Just choose between road and mountain and don't worry too much about it. [00:19:07] Randall: I don't even have three wheels. That's Craig. Bravo. [00:19:10] Craig: Next question comes from Craig. Oh I'm curious on the difference between six 50 B and 700 C and confused about boosts standards, wheels, hubs, rotors and whether it's worth the investment to pursue or just stick with my current wheels. Ideally, I was interested in putting faster, thinner type tires on my 700 C wheels that came with the bike. [00:19:29] For all their road rides and a second set of six 50 B fatter grippier types for off-road fun. I think we've talked a lot about six 50 B versus 700 C on other podcasts and also on this podcast today. But I was interested in this question around standards, as someone who has a mountain bike, I was aware of boosts standards. [00:19:50] What is going on with that with respect to gravel bikes and do we see a path towards a boost standard for gravel bikes or are there specific design considerations that make that not likely. [00:20:03] Randall: So we have one it's called road boost and it seems to have been driven by the emergence of e-bikes as a major category. And what boost does is it increases the spacing upfront 10 millimeters in the back. I believe by six. And it allows the flanges and the hub to be space more widely apart, so that you have more of a bracing angle and more lateral strength. So the same amount of spokes gives you greater lateral stiffness and strength. So that's the benefit now, does it matter for, gravel bikes of, running up to say like a 2.2 tire or even a 2.4 without suspension. It's pretty minor gains. [00:20:46] I do think that we're going to see a transition towards road boost, which is a one 12 by one 10 upfront and a 12 by 1 48 in the rear. There's, trade-offs one of them being a well for pure road bikes. It's going to be trivially, less Aero, there's always the arrow marketing story . And then two in the back to you end up potentially having to increase the Q factor. Of the cranks. So most people actually benefit from more Q factor than the super narrow ones that used to be common on road bikes so it's not really a problem for most riders, but it's just like another design constraint. There's trade-offs is, are you have to fit a lot of things in a tight package and that's the issue, but it's out there, you see a couple bikes with it. Especially E road bikes and gravel bikes. And I think over time, you'll see that transition, but don't consider it an upgrade that you need to swap your bike to get. It's not mean it's not a meaningful thing in that regard, and you can get most of the benefits by just doing asymmetric rims, which, that's why we and others do asymmetric rims to downs the spoke tensions and angles. [00:21:49] Craig: Gotcha. I'm going to slip a personal question in that I'd put in the forum. How often should I grease the threads of my through axles if I change wheels frequently? [00:21:58] Randall: Often enough so that there's always grease on them and no dirt. And if you have any where on the threads you should be doing it more often and use a FIC. FIC Greece. But if you get any dirt in there, like if you drop your through axle or something like that, now you have basically a grinding compound. In the threads. So you want to clean that up. But yeah, that, as with any interface, it will wear over time. So Greece is your way of allowing that interface to last longer than the bike. [00:22:26] Craig: Yeah, great. We've got a question from Alex, from Tifton, Georgia. What's happening in the gravel scene to involve youth. [00:22:33] Randall: You seem to be taking out junior. Fairly often on whatever kids bike with whatever tires it's got on there. I think that counts. [00:22:41] Craig: Yeah, I just want to expose my son to riding off road. And so he's still on a 20 inch wheel bike, but I've put some monster, like two, one tires that I found on it's like a monster truck for him, which I think he enjoys. I think it's the key to bring the youth through mountain biking and discover gravel versus prematurely introducing drop our bikes. [00:23:06] Randall: Yeah. I'm of the same mind. I've a niece that I take riding in the same way and it's just like she has a 20 inch wheels kid's bike. And I just take her out on the dirt and get her comfortable riding on those surfaces and pushing her comfort zone to try new things. But then also just instilling this deep love of the adventure experience, which for me what we're calling gravel is really all about. It's like going and exploring the area where you live from an entirely different angle than you would get in a car or on foot. [00:23:36] Craig: Yeah. Agreed. [00:23:37] Randall: And then of course NICA. We have some coaches in the listenership. Then the new England youth cycling association, actually Patrick in Lee likes bikes are doing a skills clinic with them in October. [00:23:48] So you have that. And then urban off-road bike parks. Lotta our kids in the city don't have access to trails. And so just providing that access, I think is critical. And there's an example of a McLaren bike park in San Francisco. It's in a part of the city that is pretty far from the bridge and pretty far from the Santa Cruz mountains. And so this would be it, and there is plans potentially to expand that. And building more urban bike parks I think is a big part of that as well. [00:24:20] Craig: Yeah, for sure. And you bring a huge skill gain to gravel if you come from the mountain bike side. [00:24:27] Randall: Yeah. Yeah. And starting with a hard tail or even a rigid flat bar bike is a great way to go. [00:24:33] Craig: A hundred percent. Next question comes from Alex in Columbia, Missouri. And it's a question about frame design. With the growing market of gravel. Where, when does the Aero slash race versus endurance market become two separate markets? Also how far do you think it'll go narrower tubing, et cetera. There seems to be a split already forming with Aero features being added to gravel bikes. [00:24:57] Randall: I have strong opinions here, so I'm going to let you go first. [00:25:00] Craig: Yeah. I think the brands are already splitting hairs with these categories as it is. And part of it is positioning vis-a-vis other competitive brands. Part of it is just the designer's vision for what this bike is intended to do. And those lines are blurry and murky and are going to come down to individual brand managers to execute on. So I think it's already a total disaster. [00:25:27] Randall: I think most Aero claims, especially in gravel are entirely bunk. And it's marketing. And I'll give you an example. So on a road bike, a designer can control almost all of the parameters except for the rider, which ironically is the biggest one more than 80% of the aerodynamic profile, the tire with being a big one, right? So you can have your rim with, and your rim depth matched to the width of the tire. You can have the down tube optimized for that tire to end up really close to the front leading edge of that down tube and the down tube, it can be really narrow. So you have a smooth transition between, rim to tire, to frame in a way that minimizes turbulence. So with a road bike, it's more of a controlled system. And even then the gains are very marginal. And if you look at the. What marketers are usually claiming. If you add up all the Watts that you saved, you'd be traveling at a hundred miles an hour on all the different components you can buy. On gravel, it's worse because you, you have really wide tires. And so you'll have a deep section rim. With a big old tire on it and the tire is much wider than the rim. You're already having detachment of airflow as soon as it comes off that tire. There's a rule which folks can look up the rule of a hundred, 5%, which says that as long as the rim is a hundred, 5%, the width of the tire, then you can generally get good attach flow over the rim, regardless of that rims shape with certain shapes being marginally better. But that one oh 5% rule being more important. But if you have a big old tire on an arrow rim, all that at error rim is doing is adding weights and potentially increasing turbulence, especially in a crosswind where it's going to make it harder to steer. So that's my take on wheels. And then obviously handlebars and all that other stuff very marginal gains, especially given that it's not being designed as a system around the tires and so on. [00:27:14] Aero helmet and rider position, rider positions the biggest thing that you can do, if you want to improve your. Arrow. [00:27:20] Craig: Yeah. And I was looking at the question more, less, so about like aerodynamics and more just marketing and bikes in general. And seeing that. There's just a spectrum of bikes that are marketed in different ways. From endurance road bikes, to Aira road bikes, to arrow gravel bikes. I totally agree and understand your comments, and my comments are more just related to the market in general and how there's a plethora of things being directed at consumers and it's ever more confusing to figure it out. [00:27:50] Fortunately with most quality gravel bikes, you do get this one bike that can do a ton of things. And bikes that you can configure in the way that you ride them. [00:28:02] Randall: Yeah, I think you'll see the incorporation of some functional arrow. There's no reason not to do a tapered head tube or certain other things, but it's such marginal gains. And really, it's hard to build an Aero bike if you're not controlling for the tire volume and given the divergence in tire sizes that these bikes use that's not a really a controllable variable in design. [00:28:24] Craig: Yeah. So the final question comes from our friend Marcus in Woodside, California. What are your guesses about the big bike tech quantum leap forward coming next, similar in magnitude to. [00:28:39] to e-bikes and olive green bib shorts. [00:28:42] Randall: Marcus is a good friend. And I was definitely on trend with the big shorts there. Really, how do you top that? How does the industry come up with the next thing after olive green shorts? [00:28:51] Craig: Nothing can make a rider faster or look better than all of Deb's shorts. [00:28:57] Randall: So that's it. Marcus? I think that's the end of innovation in the bike industry. Yeah, this is a space that you know, that I've put a little bit, a bit of thought into. I'm going to let you go first here as well. [00:29:07] Craig: I think that makes sense, because I agree this is a tailor made Randall question. I do think the continued use of electronic componentry and other electronics that we all use, has to lead to more integration in bicycles, whether it's like battery packs that are embedded in the bikes that can power both my components, my GPS computer, my headlamp, all these things. I feel like it's a natural point, just like we're seeing in every other element of our lives, where battery and power is required. These things start to appear in more innovative ways. So I think that's interesting. [00:29:46] I think on the e-bike market, we're starting to see more and more of these bikes that not only is the battery removed, but also the engine, the sort of the motor part of the componentry comes out. So you start to get this bike that has assemblance of ability to ride without the component of it and it's not going to match a pure performance bike, but it may, for some people While still having that opportunity to use the e-bike functionality. So I think those are things that trends that we're definitely going to continue to see. And. And some more forward thinking thoughts. [00:30:21] Randall: Yeah, I agree with that, and I have a little bit more nuance to add but I want to start with the big, low lying fruit, and we started doing this, Basic things like proportional, crank length. I find it nuts that the industry up until recently didn't really make anything smaller than a 1 65 crank and continues to not offer shorter cranks for shorter riders. [00:30:41] This is one thing that we did, and then you now see FSA has done a good job of having offerings down to, I think 1 45. To accommodate smaller riders and so proportional, crank length. Proportional wheel sizes, I think is a big opportunity. There's no reason why, it's really small riders. Shouldn't have their wheels scaling to some degree. We already have a 26 inch size, so maybe for the biggest higher volume on an extra small bike, you'd run a 26 by 2.2 or something like that. You do need more tire options, but otherwise it would help to make that bike perform more like the bigger ones with a bigger rider on them. So those are two that I would really like to see. [00:31:18] I'd like to see continued innovation on integrated quick on and off storage solution. So I think lightweight bags and so on are really slick. And I think that we'll continue to see innovation there. You mentioned electronics. I agree. And it's getting ridiculous with the number of batteries you can have on the bike. [00:31:34] If you have a wireless shifting system, you can have a battery in each hood battery in each front and rear derailleur. You can have sensors on the bike each with separate batteries, a heart rate monitor, or the separate battery two lights with separate batteries, computer. It's silly and it adds a lot of cost and weight and complexity the system. So I think there should be a single battery on the bike and that there should be a universal standard that all components use. I don't think this is going to happen because everyone everyone wants to trap you into their particular walled garden, but that's a conversation for another day. [00:32:04] But yeah, those are the big ones. And then lastly, self-contained bike systems that leave nearly nothing behind, maybe some sort of lightweight regenerative braking for this one battery. I would like to see. But first things first and then subtler suspension designs, which I think we're already starting to see with more compliance, like flexible components, you. [00:32:24] Bar handlebar is built with a little bit of flex or a suspension stem versus going whole hog with a full on suspension fork, just to get 30 or 40 millimeters of travel. [00:32:33] Did I answer your question? Marcus, let us know in the forum. Hope, hope you're satisfied with the answer. And what is the next color of big short. Greg, what do you think. [00:32:41] Craig: That's putting me on the spot. Maybe like a tan might do something that makes you a little bit nude. [00:32:47] Randall: Ooh. Yeah, that would be that everybody would be really comfortable seeing that. Yeah, I'm with [00:32:53] Craig: dangerous territory. [00:32:54] Randall: we will have various options to match everyone's skin tone. So we all look like we're riding in the nude. [00:33:02] Trend leader, Craig Dalton. [00:33:05] Craig: This was a heck of a lot of fun. [00:33:07] And it would not have happened without the community. So big shout out to the ridership community and to everybody who submitted questions. I'd love to see us do this again. So we'll probably set up a channel down the line and put the question out there again and see what's gets generated because it was a lot of fun chatting with you about these questions. [00:33:25] Randall: Yeah, it's what we do on our rides only we've recorded at this time. [00:33:29] Craig: Yeah, exactly. That's going to do it for us this week on behalf of Randall and myself, have a great week. And until next time here's to finding some dirt onto your wheels. [00:33:42]
Lots of TV talk this hour! It was cake week on The Great British Bake Off; did the judges pick the right winner? Send the right person home? Jason and Alexis watched different episodes of the Netflix's series "The Movies That Made Us" holiday edition and shared their takeaways. We love HBO's "We're Here" with Shangela, Bob and Eureka and we started the new season!
California was likely named for a character in an early 16th century Spanish novel. Queen Calafia was a mythical Black warrior who ruled an island of Amazon women, and commanded an army of griffins. She is said to have worn armor made of fish bones, and used weapons made of gold. Most Californians don't know this origin story, but a Bay Area theater company hopes to change that. Plus remembering Eureka's lost Chinatown. And Latin Grammy-nominated composer Gabriela Ortiz has a new concerto, for flute and orchestra inspired by El Camino Real... and the California fast food chain Taco Bell.
