Trials riding on a carbon road bike


Some people think I’m kind of weird for riding a carbon road bike on dirt singletrack.

Specialized Trail Crew

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.

Via AHTBM and Slonie.

    How many bikes did they ride in the making of that video, I wonder.
