Team Flamingo recently journeyed to the Northern California town of Fairfax, which is home to Marin Museum of Bicycling. We attended the induction ceremony and dinner for the 4 new members into the Mountain Bike Hall of Fame! Museum Curator, Joe Breeze, gave us some history and future plans for the museum. And, we had the opportunity to sit down with one of the inductees, Brent Foes of Foes Racing, as he explained his contributions to the sport of Mountain Biking! We were also joined by Stefan Utz, of cycleworks.ch, who made the trip from Switzerland to see Brent’s induction, as Stefan was the push behind this nomination!
Have you ever considered building your own teardrop trailer? If you have considered, contemplated, bought plans, or began the build, this episode is for you! We had the privilege of speaking with master woodworker, Chip Trebour, who built an outstanding specimen of teardrop trailer! Built of high quality wood, aluminum, and copper, and its design, make this little teardrop a show-stopper!
Team Flamingo is joined this week by Tony Barthel, Publisher of Curbside Car and Vintage Trailer Calendar! We turned to Tony to learn more of what folks are looking for when shopping for RVs, and what RVs have to offer, as he is also a RV sales consultant!
