Presenter Ian Parkinson and Rouleur Editor Ian Cleverly meet one of the most innovative and interesting of the new breed of bike manufacturers – Bob Parlee. Find out why he thinks carbon fibre, not steel, requires true craftsmanship, and why he's sceptical about "aero" shapes. Plus oyster farming, ski boots and boat design. And the return of the Podcast Competition.
