Is The Bike Industry Canceling XC Bikes To Sell Downcountry Trail Bikes? | Dirt Shed Show Ep. 338
This week in the Dirt Shed Show, Martyn Ashton is joined by Rich Payne to talk about the newest mountain bike sub-genre, the 'Downcountry' bike... Is it just the mountain bike industry marketing a pointless type of bike we just don't need? Or is it the perfect bike for the average XC rider who doesn't want a heavy trail bike or to be forced to ride a thoroughbred 100mm XC race bike? - ⏰ Timestamps 👇 00:00 - Topic 04:38 - MTB News 08:37 - Sickest Thing Of The Week 10:23 - Hacks & Bodges 14:25 - #CaptionContest 16:55 - On The Channel 17:36 - Bike Vault 23:00 - Fails & Bails Subscribe to Global Mountain Bike Network: http://gmbn.eu/subscribe Explore our new GMBN T-shirts and more! 👉 https://gmbn.eu/2qf Follow us on Instagram or Facebook! @globalmountainbikenetwork & sign up to the GMBN newsletter: https://gmbn.eu/newsletter Submit your content to our uploader: https://upload.gmbn.com/ we love to check out what you have been up to and may feature it on the show!
