Some people think I’m kind of weird for riding a carbon road bike on dirt singletrack.
That’s me on a sandy trail in the Santa Cruz mountains.
Check this video out, though. Once you get past the Bike Radar stuff at the beginning, British trials rider Martyn Ashton takes a Raleigh Avanti carbon fiber road bike on the road, and to the beach, and over boulders and along bridge railings.
How many bikes did they ride in the making of that video, I wonder.
