Budget Mountain Bike Gets Upgraded and Sent Hard!
In a previous video, we started fixing up an old entry level hardtail mountain bike, only to get stuck due to poor planning. We were going to give the bike to a lucky kid, but to meet the deadline we actually gave him a totally different bike. That video is here: alworld.info/u/video/oaOqnG1lbaSte78
This week, we’re finishing what we started! With a bin full of the proper parts that actually fit the bike, we’re going to build it up and get it working. Then, we’ll hold on to it for a little bit and test it out on our backyard mountain bike trails! Enjoy.

    Dave SatherDave Sather28 ditë më parë
  • man - I loved watching this - you have great energy and enthusiasm (as always) :) What would be great to know would be the context of weight etc., ... i.e. you mentioned about the frame-size being fine for your size but how about the weight that those forks are suitable for? (I'm only 5 ft 8 inches / 174cm but my pacific-island heritage means high muscle-fibre density which means I'm heavier than I should be for someone my height and shape ... I'm 95kgs / 210 lbs with a power-lifter type body-shape). Reason I'm asking is because after about 12 years, I'm finally looking to replace my 2007 Giant Glory 8. ok ... side-note: I have attachment issues so I'm never getting rid of Gloria :) ... I LOVE her but I'm 48, she's heavy, and 3 years ago I was diagnosed Type 2 Diabetic (genetic - not obesity) so my energy levels aren't what they used to be and she IS punishing on the pedalling ... ) So I'm looking at alternative bikes so I can keep up with my 14 year old son who's just gotten into mtb (I discovered he'd been quietly watching ALworld vids from you, BCPOV, Sam Pilmgrim, etc., ... - so fully jumping on the oppo to get him into the fun :) ) But yeah - heavy bike, I'm not so fit, he's got energy to burn!!!! With all of the current talk about "being over-biked" I'm also starting to think that a better approach is to get something that's just enough rather than over-engineering it for 30 foot gap jumps that I'm just never gonna be doing. So ... what's the heaviest person you'd put on those forks? And given that we often need to "dial in" the componentry for odd-fellas that don't meet the 120 lbs of the designer's (delusional) target market, do you think that beefing up the weight of the oil or spring in those forks is generally a successful way to "dial in" the forks or is there only so far you can go?
