Build Your Own Mountain Bike | Dirt Shed Show Ep. 205

Following last weeks announcement of the Atherton’s building their own mountain bikes, Martyn wanted to talk to people who’ve built their own custom MTB’s. Making your own bike gives you the opportunity to tailor the riding experience to your preferences and geometry, but would you make your own?

I didn’t really know where to put this comment… Two things – first Martyn, I watched your TED talk and was quite moved. I’m a stage 4 cancer fighter/survivor/patient and cycling (road, gravel and Mtb) is my savior, and has helped me be the most righteous cancer patient on the planet. Your absolutely right when you say “In Disaster There is Opportunity”, although for many this can be a tough row to come by. I thinka lot of people get wrapped up in what may be, instead of understanding just how brilliant the here and now truly is. Second, I have a request for your crazy fun fails and bails – I’d love to see a show where you take some of the most memorable fails and bails and analyze them from the standpoint of what went wrong. In other words, help us ‘amateurs’ understand what not to do. Anyway, keep up the brilliance.

I NEED to see a Aston Bike build followed by a comparison to a modern trials bike!

Gusenator says:

Made a bamboo singlespeed flatbar street bike myself two years ago… Destroyed some old steel frames for the junctions and added bamboo for 7(!)€ in between. It’s an amazing bike to ride and was a nice project to get through winter… When you have the possibility to build a frame yourself, do it! It’s a great experience!

Paul Murden says:

Martin says:
