Devinci ftw !!
I know this is just for shits and giggles, but it would be interesting if each presenters would do all challenges with all bikes and do and average per bike and an average pr presenter
Should’ve had Sam pilgrim on here. He’s the master of old and strange bikes 😂
i run a a kona process x
Jordan Boostmaster and Stevie smith showed the potential of the wilson 👌👌
love that Neil decided to keep his 👍
Wish I could find deals like that here. Usually the best I can find locally is 10 year old XC bikes around the $1500 mark, sometimes $1000. Either that, or new $3k+ bikes.
Really impressive video quality you guys showcased these bikes really well
I have the same sadell as you 😊
Great job on the DH race Neil! Love the music they put over your DH segment! really felt that 😀
Some old school bikes that obviously can still be ridden these dudes are typical snobby brits
hey im still riding a rocky mountain maiden in 26 wheels, so there aint dead
Love how this challenge is just like old top gear live it
Blake said the n word
So not fair, Neil is too fast😂
7:39 they can’t do math
You could see how uncomfortable rich was on his saggy bag of crap.
Also older geo bikes disproportionately hindered taller riders. Would have liked to see Neil ride the others too
It is surprising though that you can still have fun on a 26er contrary to what the media would have you believe so well done guys theres plenty of pplmout there who would only just about be able to afford these but they’re still great fun bikes and art least you can still get out there on the trails
I love this. There are so many good looking old bikes for sale at killer prices. Bikes from back in the day when I wish I could buy them. If I were to ever get a dh bike again I would just buy an old session, demo or yeti 303. So many days I have to tell myself no do not buy a new bike because they are cheap
Can you do this with trail or enduro bikes ?? 🤘
I remember Kona stinky’s were really popular back in the day here in the states. There’s a really well known popular bike shop down here in Southern California and one of the shop employees fixed up his old stinky with some updated parts and still rips on it.
Is 600 cheap?
Blake said mongoose looks so ugly 😭😂
Great video guys
those vintage boxxers with the logo on the stanchion are gorgeous
Can you stop putting your prices in $$ we live in the UK and gmbn is based in the UK its ££ here!!
For someone 600 bucks bike is a dream and you meaking laugh from it.. It is like drink diffrent types of water at front of african peoples..not cool
They are still better than most of our bikes
I had a Wilson just like that build. Bike was super fun
what size for 5′ 4"?
Does Blake still have the Kona and would he like to sell it the next time he’s at BPW?
Is it just me or does Blake absolutely crack you up.
STINKY ALWAYS ROCKS.
My favorite type of video 😍😍
Omg top gear for bikes… keep doing this and I’ll watch forever lol
dont care how outdated that kona is, its still cool as fuck. Lusted over them so hard growing up and theyre absolutely bomb proof.
i vote for devinci
That mongoose fork looked so horrible to ride fast OMG! 😨
Neil is such a beast
He did not count the people right 😂
lots of cheap counterfeit garbage on Amazon check out the Fat Bike that Sam Pilgrim road for 250 squids.. piss taking funny to watch… but this shit is fcukin dangerous, and where is the Law that protects the Consumer.. from buying this Garbage, it seems to these days not Exist (i purchased bike garbage on Amazon only once and never again… )
these are still normal bikes, but you try to take russian "Stels","Forward" etc. its double suspensions cycles for $200
It was funny before I saw the Kona I thought "they better have a stinky" I was not disappointed.
huh, i’d kill a man for a kona stinky….
0:16 still trying to find the name of that song
Guys love the content and the chemistry bravo. Now my comment, I see you have an employee named Big Man? I saw he is indeed big. So why do you not sell 3XL jerseys and such? I’m a Big Man too and we deserve to look as good as you guys? Come on the MTB world needs to start making clothes, helmets etc. for Big Men. Its sad we can’t fit any full face DH helmets! I know you don’t sell helmets but you could start the trend with 3XL jerseys and t-shirts? How about a video where we see what the Big Man rides? Blake could get him jumping?
Wow Neil was flying!!!
There is 2+2=3 after whip off
I like the stinky. Such a robust design.
In what way is the second bike a URT? It doesn’t look like the pivot point of the rear suspension is connected to the seat tube.
As far as the desirability challenge goes, you need someone that knows how numbers work and can remember them long enough to add them up correctly.
