This Or That with Danny Soltan

on
Danny GJ
You don’t know what you’ve got ’till it up and moves to Boston. While Danny has flown the proverbial coop and moved to Massachusetts, developed a wicked pissah accent and got even deeper into cyclocross, he’s still 3TQM through and through. He offers an East Coast look at this year’s ThisOrThat, confirms the squads nearly unanimous move to a single chain ring, and finally stands up to scones parading as a tasty treat. YOU ARE NOT WHO YOU SAY YOU ARE, SCONES!
