Riding Downhill on the Extreme MTB Tricycle!
Well, I mean, obviously it’s a DH, triple clamp fork’d tricycle of doom – why wouldn’t it be? You really think you’ve seen it all when you’ve watched a trillion and one MTB videos but nay, Brother Pilgrim hath gone forth into the world with a quite ridiculous contraption and here he is to show and tell us all about it…
I went to Aston hill bike park to see if the extreme MTB tricycle would survive a real mountain bike DH track with drops and jumps, but I didn’t think it would be this crazy!!
I decided to ride at Aston Hill Bike Park because it is so steep and pretty technical on a normal bike, so of course I knew it would be a true test for the tricycle. Unfortunately the trike still only has a front brake which really makes things interesting when it starts getting steep!
The trail I rode is called surface to air and it has a lot of different jumps, berms and bumps and was super hard to get down on the tricycle which made it extra fun!
After a few crashes and near misses I made it to the bottom. After being towed back to the top by Lewi Pilgrim and his E-bike I did a GoPro top to bottom run which was amazingly fun, I also found an insane place to do drifts on the tricycle! This was seriously such an epic day and I can’t wait to get back out on the tricycle soon!
I hope you enjoy the video!
