Used Downhill Bike gets Fixed, Ridden, and Named

  • Published on Jun 7, 2019
  • This story is as much about a used $500 downhill mountain bike as it is about Kevin's progression as a rider. Less than two years ago, Kevin started mountain biking in earnest. Up until that time he had only borrowed bikes and/or ridden casually.
    To avoid abusing his enduro bike, Kevin bought a used downhill bike for $500, but it needed some TLC. With a very minimal investment, he and I got the bike running well enough to take to Windrock for a proper test.
    Now the bike needs more work, but it's officially part of Kevin's fleet.
    Enjoy!

    I’m the same way too - roady converting into mtb. Decided to get a $1k full suspension and basically beat everybody going down the trail in their $5k plus bikes like they are standing still. So here I am selling my roady and “entry” mtb to get a proper carbon dh bike 👌🏻 here’s for 2020 mtb season 🍾🙌🏻

    Watching this video inspired me to find a project bike, found a decent shape frame and suspension bike for $700, worked on the brakes and the shop bled them, replaced the headset bearing and tightened some stuff and it was good to go!

    Kevin liked bmx for the thrill.
    He like road biking for the speed.
    Kevin was good at both.
    Kevin was unknowingly setting himself up to conquer mountains.

    LMAO Downhill Mountainbiking being saver?!?!?!? Seth you kiddin' right? I am a roadie myself for about 15 years, and (by no small influence of yours) I'll be a Downhiller in the near future. I am scared by the idea... and hyped as f***! What I want to say is this: Downhill is pure adrenalin glory but also has the potential to so much worse crashes and injuries.

    Hell I washed out of a turn yesterday... nothing serious but you just crash so much more on mounties.

    I could ride that bike 8 hrs a day, every day for a year and as I approached that red bull drop my mind would be shouting 'no, no NO... !!!' Kevin's got balls and talent. I've got balls, just they're different to Kevin's.

      I just started 3 months ago. Believe me, it's extremely fun. Nothing better than being scared out of your mind going downhill not knowing what to do and then learning from the experience. Only thing is you have to pedal back up.
