Something I’ve been thinking about for a long time…

There’s an idea that I’ve been keeping in the back of my head for the last few year that I’ve been wanting to do. It’s been talked about with various people in my inner circle of riding friends, and for the most part, some of us thought it might be a good idea. Ok so here it is, “what if we take a Wally World Bike (or equivalent) and try to do some downhill with it?” The question is, how long would it last? Oh and here’s another question, “who would be ballsey (or dumb enough) to ride it?”

So I thought about it really hard, and I think the only one who is daring enough and probably has the biggest balls on payroll at MtnBikeRiders.com is Team Racer, Art Aguilar. Don’t let his party animal facade fool ya, Art actually is a very talented downhill racer with years of experience under his belt and I think he’s the only one that could pull of this experiment. Team Racer Corey Pond would certainly be up for the challenge, but he’s too pretty to mess up. I’d hate for him to mess up his money maker or something. But with Art…eh, we’re good to go. Oh by the way, I probably should ask him if he’s willing to take on the roll…

The next step is to peruse the local Craigslist Ads to see if we can acquire a very inexpensive or free POS bike and see how many DH runs we can make on it before it starts to fall apart. We’ll keep you all updated with our progress.
