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: issofts.info/video/v-deo/p6R7nG9paqTXp4o
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.

    hey im having a problem with my bike's disk brakes. no matter how hard I press it does not want to break properly, even though I can see the pads touching the disk. Do you think I need new pads for the breaks or is it something to do with the wires having too much slack.

    I bought a used hardtail a couple days ago for 330€ (specialized rockhopper pro) and i mounted all the tuning parts from my old hardtail that i bought last year for 200€. 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.

    I've always found hairspray to be the perfect thing for getting rubber grips on. It sets like glue when it dries, then will dissolve with warm water when you want to take it off.

    Old trick to putting on bike handles, and I imagine those break grips (which I use), is hair spray. Spray some on the leavers and then slip on the grips and let dry for a bit. Bing Bang Boom.
