Can a bargain bike (or, in this case, a free one) be as good as a modern MTB? Chances are you’ve already made up your mind but watch Sam Pilgrim take this modified machine down steep trails and over jumps and see what can be achieved with a little effort…
“Riding downhill takes place at Aston Hill Bike Park in the UK, we went to this MTB centre because it has a pretty steep and gnarly downhill track for me to try out the new and improved FREE BIKE which of course ended with some crashes!! I decided to put some triple clamp Marzocchi suspension forks up front along with some Magura brakes for the much needed stopping power. I also put on some Continental tyres along with a few other upgrades that you’ll find out about.
“The weather was absolutely awful but that didn’t stop the excitement, so I have a question for you. Do you wanna see more DH or should I change it into a slopestyle bike and do some tricks?!”
I hope you enjoy the video!
