Jeff Cleary - creator of Cleary Bikes - joins us this afternoon to discuss the company's wonderful kids bikes. Far and away one of our favorite products at Interbike this year. A description of what Cleary Bikes is all about:
Cleary Bikes empower kids. A bike launches a little boy or girl into the world. He does not have to be a daredevil. When a kid pushes off on his or her bike, rides to the mailbox, the store, the park or to school, he becomes actively engaged. Not being led by the hand and blazing his own path, is independence!
Riding a bike should be fun. It certainly shouldn’t be stressful or scary. When we created Cleary Bikes we wanted to thrill kids. Riding a Cleary Bike is truly a joyful experience. They roll smoothly, they’re quiet, and they look sleek. We see our bikes as fun tools, not toys. Kids know the difference because the quality that distinguishes our bikes is evident in every facet of their construction. It can be felt in every pedal stroke.
We know these things because we have been riding bikes since we first threw a leg over the banana seat on a second-hand Huffy Dragster. We pedaled on through mountain bikes, road bikes, cross bikes, time trial bikes - and then bikes for our kids. And that's when it became clear the kids needed something better.
Nick Frey of Boo Bicycles - yes "Boo" - as in bamboo. Nick is the builder of some of the most beautiful, functional and comfortable custom bicycles on the market. Long time racer and Boo rider Shawn Heidgen of Training Peaks joins us as well. Live From Retul.

Our guest this morning is Gillian Howe, lead vocalist of Tumbledown House.
Gambling. Murder. Booze. Bicycles.
The music of Tumbledown House has been described as "gritty saloon jazz", "modern speakeasy music", and "Tom Waits in a cocktail dress". Consisting primarily of sultry vocalist Gillian Howe and the eclectic indie-jazz guitar work of Tyler Ryan Miller, Tumbledown House provides the soundtrack for raucous, prohibition-themed parties and has “quickly ascended as one of the new, promising acts of the Rocky Mountain region” according to the(Pop Rocket Press.
Tumbledown House has a brand new release called “Fables and Falsehoods”. It enlists the talents of ten other musicians (including three horn players from New Orleans’ Dirty Dozen Brass Band) for an upbeat, 1920’s big band romp. The new album explores diverse subject matter (one song is based on the original story of Pinocchio written by Carlo Collodi in 1883, another describes the only consecrated shrine dedicated to unrepentant sinners, which still stands in Tucson, Arizona) and showcases the duo’s talent for creating something vintage and familiar, yet refreshing, distinct, and exciting.
Tumbledown House will be playing for two shows only on Friday, October 10 and Saturday, October 11 at the Nakano Theatre in the Torrance Cultural Arts Complex. If you haven’t bought tickets yet, you better get on that now!

Nick Frey, owner of Boo Bicycles, joins us this morning for a discussion about the upcoming Leadville 100 mountain bike race. One hundred miles across the high-altitude, extreme terrain of the Colorado Rockies, this event was created for only the most determined athletes. Starting at 10,152 feet and climbing to 12,424 feet, you’ll be challenged to catch your breath — while the views try to take it away.
Boo Bicycles builds racing level bamboo-carbon bike frames by hand. Every frame is custom made to order and all types of bikes are created, from road to ‘cross to mountain to touring to townie. And everything in-between. The goal of Boo Bicycles has been to create high performance bicycles that are also supple, smooth, and comfortable. These traits had previously been mutually exclusive: you could not have your cake and eat it, too. However, Boo has successfully married two composite materials, one natural, one synthetic, to create the optimum blend of performance and comfort
Boo Bicycles' Nick Frey joins us to discuss the 2014 Leadville 100. It was Nick's best showing ever placing in the top 25. During our pre-race show Nick stated he hoped he didn't have many stories to tell as that could mean overcoming difficulties while racing. For Nick's sake this will hopefully be a boring interview! However, I have a feeling this will be quite interesting.

On tonight's show:
I announce some changes at Red Maryland to both our network and our blog. I will also announce a new strategic alliance Red Maryland has made to expand its reach!
As the race for Governor heats up, campaign spending rises to new levels. Larry Hogan again is proving just how competitive a candidate he is while the media continues to cover for Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown's flaws.
The state's medical marijuana panel is continuing to receive criticism. We'll discuss.
Voter fraud in Maryland? Shocking, I know. A new report details recently uncovered instances of voter fraud the state's democrats deny exists.
I invite Anita Heygster of the Capital Editorial Board to "Get of My Lawn" for her asinine and predictably big government solution to "bike-car accidents" none of which actually deal with the core of the problem that cars and bicycles are incompatible on busy highways.
Benjamin Day of the United Health Care Cycling Team joins us for an insider view of US Pro Cycling Challenge Stage 2. United Health Care is having a great race with Kiel Riejnen now wearing the Sprint Jersey. Stage 2 opens fast by ripping down the Aspen Valley through the sprint cities of Basalt and Carbondale before tackling the 8,700 ft. McClure Pass. A short descent brings the race to Gunnison County road 12, which is a 20-mile rollercoaster that constantly changes from pavement to dirt and back again, while topping out at 9,900 ft. over Kebler Pass. A technical descent into Crested Butte brings the race back to familiar terrain. As in 2011 and 2012, the race will finish up with a sprint through downtown Crested Butte and the steep finish climb up to Mt. Crested Butte.
