This week on the “Predator Feed Zone” podcast, the shop pushes through hump day by discussing the Specialized body hair / speed wind tunnel tests, commuter, cargo, and innovative bikes. Nissy and Courtney also have a deeply disturbing discussion about cyclists who need to go #1 and #2 on a long ride.

We encourage you to send Nissy good luck vibes at the U.S.A Cycling Elite Track Nationals this coming week! She’ll be representing Predator and is sure to kick some track ass in Rockhill, SC! She’s promised to call in for an update for Episode 3 and we’re holding it to her…(she gets held to a lot here, it’s how we get things done!)

Also remember to check out our online shop to get our newly released “Carbon Incarnate” t-shirts! These babies look slick with our carbon fiber infused logo on top of a vintage black 100% cotton tee.

Super star and overall nice guy Guy East sat down with Predator Cycling to talk about his custom handle bar system, “The Major” as well as his colorful race colors. Guy, a U.S. pro track racer and 6-day racer is one of our favorite customers. Beyond Guy’s amazing talents on the bike, he also gets his custom bars painted via Stoemper to match his frames. His most recent update is quite the glow-in-the-dark feat!

Guy East Stoemper painted Glow-in-the-dark  theme

Predator: Guy, we love that you rock our Majors. How do they work for you and what do you love about them?

Guy: I love the name. I love the look. I love the feel. Predator Majors are the nicest bars on the market in my opinion. They catch the attention of all the Europeans and certainly are the hottest bars on the 6-day circuit. The majors keep the front of the bike stiff while sprinting around the track at 40mph next to the 6-day stars. I’ve enjoyed used the majors and can’t imagine riding anything else on the track.

Predator: What would you say to those racers missing out on a carbon bar/stem combo like The Major?

Guy: Get majors! You won’t regret it.

Predator: What do you see and what would you like to see for Guy East’s future with Predator Cycling?

Guy: Aside from continuing in the 6-days I’m working on a new Mexican/American Pro road team. The team would be registered in Mexico and we’d compete in Central and South America. There are so many wonderful races in South America and I’d like to form a team capable of doing well. I want the team to be half American, half Mexican so the Americans can learn the Latin culture and the Mexicans can learn the American culture and racing. I also want it to be a career development path for the guys so they can succeed outside of sport when their careers finish. Long story short, I hope our guys will be on Predator bars next season. With our Majors you won’t be able to miss us! 

Guy also is involved with More Than Sport, an athletic organization that gives back to local communities and collaborates with professional athletes, charities, and corporations. More Than Sport uses athletics to reach out to children and local neighborhoods in order to educate and promote sports as a way to expound upon personal goals and recreational activities. A grass roots movement, More Than Sport accepts donations and personal contributions worldwide. Check out morethansport.org.

This week’s podcast episode recap: The gang discusses the Tour de France and asks, “Where was the women’s race?”, Get’s schooled in track racing: Kierin 101, and Nissy accidentally blinds everyone in the face with Siracha.

The Predator Cycling crew is at it again. We’re always interrupting our lunch hour by discussing cycling races, products, and news…so we decided to mic up the shop and share our zany knowledge with the rest of the bike community. We don’t claim to know everything (in fact, two of us know essentially nothing about bicycles) …but Aram’s shear love of the sport and Nissy’s active racing keeps us all entertained and engaged for a podcast.

So, who are our podcast round table regulars?

Aram Goganian: Creator, owner, and all-around pretty face of Predator Cycling. Aram has raced track since he was a wee little boy and continues to speed around SoCal on his own hand-made custom Predator carbon bicycle. Aram loves cycling, salads, and putting his feet up.

Nissy Cobb: Maintains a professional, yet sultry phone voice when answering customer calls at Predator. As our shop’s first point of contact, you’ll fall in love with her attentive and well-natured demeanor. Hailing all the way from Portland, Nissy brings with her unique racing knowledge, a meat-only diet, and a 17″ high afro.

Seza Ouzounian: Creator of Aram Goganian. This woman keeps the shop in order. Is it time to run the vacuum? Seza will let you know. As Aram’s longest supporter, Seza keeps Predator Cycling’s vision afloat. If you’ve called the shop, you’ve more than likely spoken with her and are probably already life long friends.

Courtney Bresler: Started dating Aram two years ago and somehow became a bike shop minion. If you hear a basic bicycle question, it’s probably coming from her. If you see a red head that looks out of place at the shop lightly sanding down bikes, it’s probably her. Likes: Riding stoker on the tandem. Dislikes: Pedaling.

Xaviere Coleman: Right-hand man to Aram. Studying composites to eventually work on airplanes. Wraps carbon like a pro. A huge fan of ordering lunches and getting full before starting them. Also a cat lady.
