Listen in: Radio Century Cycles

Radio Century Cycles is a monthly call-in show broadcast online that gives you the inside scoop on bicycling in Northeast Ohio. Click here to listen to the show, download it for later, or get it as a free podcast from iTunes. The show is broadcast live at 10:30 a.m. the third Tuesday of every month, should you want to call in with a question or comment. The show is hosted by Bob Soroky, a sales associate at our Medina store and a radio veteran.

On the first show last month, Bob interviewed local Cat 1 racer Andy Clarke about his training in Spain.

On today's show, Bob interviewed Derrick Kortvejesi, service manager of Century Cycles in Peninsula, for his tips on how to prep a bike for spring riding. At the close of the interview, Derrick recommends using a "chain checker," a tool that bike mechanics use to gauge chain wear and elongation. A worn-out chain can shift poorly and damage the cogs and drivetrain, which is much more costly to replace than a chain (and certainly more expensive than a $12 chain checker).
