On October 5th, 2013, I did a short interview with Grant Petersen, the founder of Rivendell Bicycle Works (RBW), and asked him a series of questions that I had been thinking on for a while now.

It was supposed to be a 10 minute deal, but we went over the limit by another 10, so the audio clip is a little lengthy.

Big thanks to Grant for letting me use his time!
