How Much Do You Need To Ride To Be Really Good At Mountain Biking? | Dirt Shed Show Ep.188

Published on October 12th 2018


Martyn is back in the shed this week and we’re discussing just how do you become really good at mountain biking? Is it simply a matter of riding MTB’s for hours on end? Professor Ashton shows us his formula for success. We also take a look at the world’s first penny farthing mountain bike and we have a brand new GMBN member!

Shop Online: Everyone here at GMBN want to say a big congratulations to Blake and Jenn and welcome Charlie to world. To answer EMBN (and their critics) Neil takes his cross country bike to the slab to see if it actually is possible on a normal mountain bike... Neil has a historical fact of the week about how old mountain biking is, and Doddy is expecting an interruption from Martyn for tech of the week, and has some pretty cool Cannondale prototypes for you to geek out over. Neil and Martyn nearly give out a full house of Supernice’s in the bike vault, and we have a very clever wheel truing stand in this week’s Chain Reaction Cycles Hack’s and Bodges.
