Bike Talk

Ever heard the pbs show called "car talk"? I got to thinking that someone in pbs should get a clue and start a show called "BIKE TALK", can you imagine the phone lines lighting up?
Hear this:
Ring..... "Hello this is Bike Talk, can we help you." (Boston Accent)
"Huh, golly gee, I never thought it would get through, buy boy howdy I sure am glad to get to talk to you all."
"Well what can we do to help you?"
"Well get off the radio and get on your bike".

I am sure you can make it better.......

I would be the last one they would listen to. They need someone in the trade to talk to them, it would be interesting though.

We like to listen to Car Talk. Bob and Ray are probably not cyclists, but they do not seem to be entirely ignorant about bikes.

One time, a few months ago we heard them say as they were describing that weeks puzzler for listeners to try to solve, something like: "...write your answer on a Dura Ace rear derailleur and send it to us..."
