Blake Samson and Rich Payne head to the hills to find out what is the best 'do it all MTB'. Will Blake''s choice, a Propain Spindrift, with 190mm front and 180mm rear travel be too much for tasks like climbing a tight cornering. Or will Rich's 150/140mm not have enough travel for some of the bigger hits. By the end of the video Rich and Blake hope to find out which of the two bikes is a better all-rounder, stay tuned to find out! ⏱ Timestamps ⏱ 0:00 - Welcome To Another GMBN Video! 0:28 - The Bikes | Propain - Spindrift | Propain - Hugene 1:13 - “Let’s Go For A Ride!” 2:17 - The Super Enduro Bike 3:23 - The Trail Bike 4:37 - Pedalling Uphill 5:40 - The Downhill 6:51 - Technical Downhill 7:24 - Conclusion Useful Links: 🛍 GMBN Merch Store 👉 https://gmbn.eu/gmbnshop Racing Highlights & More On GMBN Racing 👉 https://gmbn.eu/GMBNracing Watch Shorts on GMBN 👉 https://gmbn.eu/GMBNshorts Submit your Photo and Video to us 👉 https://upload.gmbn.com/ Sign-up to our newsletter 👉 https://gmbn.eu/newsletter How much suspension travel do you have?
