About the video that started it all... I bought this bike from Walmart, took it home, and then attempted to make it safe by tightening and adjusting everything on it. The following day we took the bike to an easy mountain bike trail, and it worked well until the rear wheel came out of alignment.
Throughout the week I rode the bike around town, watching everything fall into disrepair from normal use. The hubs ate themselves, the headset never stayed tight, and the brakes were just a joke. It was time to see what this thing could handle for real.
The final video is of me riding street trials on this bike—if you want to call it that. We took it off drops, ride over rugged terrain, and even tried a few surprises.
A year later, after the bike sat in storage for a while, I repaired everything on it and used it for another experiment. Did it survive? Find out!
