Old Budget Hardtail Gets Fixed Up and Sent Hard!

Budget Mountain Bike Gets Upgraded and Sent Hard!
In a previous video, we started fixing up an old entry level hardtail mountain bike, only to get stuck due to poor planning. We were going to give the bike to a lucky kid, but to meet the deadline we actually gave him a totally different bike. That video is here: ltclub.info/online/pKd6m5xib3Osqr0/vaizdo-ra-as
This week, we’re finishing what we started! With a bin full of the proper parts that actually fit the bike, we’re going to build it up and get it working. Then, we’ll hold on to it for a little bit and test it out on our backyard mountain bike trails! Enjoy.

  • If you're trying to install sticky fingers, just get some soapy water on the lever and on the inside of the sticky finger, and it'll slide right on. Wait for it to dry, and it will be plenty secured.

  • Personally, I'm 6'5" tall and I have NEVER had a bike that was actually the right size for me ! Seriously I have owned about 15 bikes since 1975 and I've had to modify every one of them to make it usable. Extra tall seat posts have worked on a lot of bikes but the geometry was still wrong. Anyone out there know of a good fitting mountain bike under a grand that I should look at ?

Now i have the ultimate budget bike and i bought some coloured parts to make it look cooler. Now it looks very pretty and i didn’t spend much money to have fun :)

  • Back in the day (1995) When I was working on cheap bikes from box stores we used Windex to put on grips. when dry the only way to get them off is to use more Windex with a screw driver and you might get them off or just cut them off. What do you think? Also I'm thinking about getting back into biking (MTB at 60 years old?) what should I expect to pay for a used bike for trail riding? I don't think I will be hitting big jumps / drops of doom. Like your content, makes me want to try.
