On episode #158 it was my pleasure to join Andy on his live Facebook show, Shred In The Shed. I have known Andy for almost a couple of years and had him on the podcast back on episode #83 (listen here). So when Andy invited me up to be a guest on his popular show called Shred In The Shed, I couldn’t resist. I knew it would be a blast, a good laugh and something different. This time I would be in front of the camera (not a strong point of mine) and not hiding behind a microphone, but I knew I would enjoy it and have a bit of craic at the same time. So join Andy and myself as we chat about bikes, flats vs clipless, carbon vs aluminum, 27.5 or 29er, favourite trials and much much more.
