Rouleur Podcast: issue 59 with Bob Parlee

Presenter Ian Parkinson and Rouleur Editor Ian Cleverly meet one of the most innovative and interesting of the new breed of bike manufacturers – Bob Parlee.

 

One of the most eminent name in carbon bike design, find out why the American thinks carbon fibre, not steel, requires true craftsmanship, and why he’s sceptical about “aero” shapes.

 

Plus we chat oyster farming, ski boots and boat design. And there’s the return of the Podcast Competition.
