The Marginal Gains Podcast, presented by Silca is the show that makes a big deal about the little things, and how those little things...can be a big deal. Josh Poertner of Silca, along with Hottie and Fatty, talks about all aspects of cycling — design, manufacturing, marketing, riding, racing, management and most likely every from a thoughtful perspective. It's a podcast for the thinking cyclist.

We're back with more proof that we're willing to ask Josh practically anything bike-related...and that he's willing to take practically any question seriously. In Ask Josh Anything #008, we talk about what gas you should fill your tires with, the challenge of planning for endurance ride air pressure loss, marginal gains and Kipchoge's sub-2-hr ...…
 
In this final (?) part of our Hour Record trilogy, we talk about the rules of the modern Hour Record, how marginal gains start really coming into play, the theoretical upper limit for the hour record and how close we are to it, and the future for the hour record. We give extra focus to Bradley Wiggins' hour record, in part because it comes as c ...…
 
We're back with a new set of questions for Josh, digging deep into the topics supernerd cyclists care deeply about. We talk about the products that intrigued Josh most at Eurobike, find out what size (diameter and width) he'd make road wheels be if he could start from scratch, speculate on whether the very aero-looking Ceepo Shadow-R is actuall ...…
 
In part 2 of our Hour Record series, Josh, Hottie and Fatty talk about why you can go faster at altitude, even with less oxygen in your lungs...up to a point. We chat about the magnificently weird (but mostly magnificent) Merckx hour record, and how much further he might have gone if he knew then what we know now. Finally, we discuss the cyclis ...…
 
The ongoing "Ask Josh Anything" series is back from Summer vacation and we've got a fun — and surprisingly informative — set of questions for Josh, including: What marginal gains are made by following the TTT instructions in a pre-TdF video by Team EF? When you've got a tailwind, is it better to still make yourself as small as possible, or shou ...…
 
The Hour Record is unlike any other race in cycling. Almost unimaginably difficult to do, but elegantly simple in concept: Ride your bike, as hard as you can, for an hour. When you look underneath this simplicity, however, the subtlety, beauty, cruelty, and sophistication of this race become totally gripping. And then you find out there's way, ...…
 
With two of the three of the Marginal Gains hosts also doing a weekly podcast on the Leadville 100 MTB race, you knew it was just a matter of time 'til we dragged the topic of Leadville into this show. And that time...is now. The fact is, the idea of marginal gains goes hand in hand with endurance races like the Leadville 100. It’s over long da ...…
 
Josh is in Europe, involved with some race or something. Whatever. Which means that Hottie andFat Fatty get to pick the topic for the episode. And that means fewer big words and more talk about a topic Hottie and Fatty have wanted to dig into since episode 1 of Marginal Gains: the process of creating and refining products at Silca. Joining them ...…
 
In this Q&A episode of the show that makes a big deal about the little things (and how those little things can be a big deal), we try to stump Josh with questions like: Do stiff shoes matter? What's the point of hookless rims? What benefits does steel have over carbon? What's the weight vs aero tipping point? Are 23mm tires dead? Is graphene ti ...…
 
"Materials and Marginal Gains" is a big topic — too big for a single episode of this show. So if it's OK with you (and we think it will be), we'd like you to think of this as the first of many episodes about Materials. And we're going to kick this introduction off with a few stories, and look forward to hearing your thoughts and feedback...whic ...…
 
We didn't set out to turn every other episode of the Marginal Gains Podcast into the "Try to Stump Josh" game show, but at least 2/3 of the hosts of the show are glad it worked out this way. In this episode, we ask Josh what he thinks of Zipp's new MTB rims, puzzle over why the GoPro is so non-aero (and how to mitigate that non-aero-ness), disc ...…
 
While we have just 5 contact points with the bike, each of those contact points are made of whole systems of contact points. And your tires are the ONLY contact points between the bicycle and the earth. Think about it: all the forces, traction, braking, cornering, all have to be transferred through tiny patches of rubber, dynamically moving on ...…
 
We didn't necessarily intend for it to turn out this way, but this episode of Marginal Gains' "Ask Josh Anything" is a wheels, rims, tubes, and tires question extravaganza. We also find time to discuss the Silca Hiro chuck's origin story, whether testing how aero helmets are in a lab setting has real value, and exactly how much impact on your r ...…
 
Hysteresis is the term for processes that behave differently in one direction than in another. Understanding it is critical for flying, for dampened suspension systems, and for being aero on your bike. Yep, in this episode we'll be making liberal use of analogies that include a Tempurpedic mattress, a rolling tire, mountain bike suspension and ...…
 
In this Q&A episode of Marginal Gains, Josh answers questions about whether front and rear tires should have symmetric or asymmetric air pressure (and why). We dig into whether no-name Chinese handlebars and wheels are a good deal, or just cheap (and why). Josh analyzes the ongoing thread at Slowtwitch that shows little Crr difference between 2 ...…
 
Non-linearity has literally has won and lost the Tour de France. Josh breaks down this important concept -- one he admits to sometimes having a tough time wrapping his brain around. The metaphor? Extreme betting during what would turn out to be a very expensive round of golf. From there we apply non-linearity to cycling and aerodynamics. Let's ...…
 
It's the first of what is sure to be many "Ask Josh Anything" episodes of the Marginal Gains podcast. And if this episode is any indicator of how our listeners think, the Marginal Gains crowd is a smart bunch of cyclists. Josh answers questions about experimenting to get your tires to the right pressure, tire vs frame and fork compliance, techn ...…
 
We love symmetry—our eyes are drawn to it and our minds intuitively grasp it. But in this episode, Josh, Hottie and Fatty look at asymmetry, what it is, what it means, and how it can be leveraged for a competitive advantage in complex cycling problems where there isn't an obvious or easy solution. Then we'll bring it all home with some very pra ...…
 
Welcome to the first episode of The Marginal Gains Podcast, presented by Silca — the show that makes a big deal about the little things, and how those little things can be a big deal. In this first episode, Josh Poertner, Hottie (Michael Hotten) and Fatty (Elden Nelson) obsess over about what marginal gains are, why they matter, and the huge di ...…
