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: rsclub.info/life/video/pqiqbZpmbnqnqL0.html
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.

    This was a fun build to watch... well, a fun build correction/redo. I'm gonna go find the first build vid now. Looking to do something similar for my son, who is about to grow into the old 26" tire size. :) Gonna try to do it cheaper than this, though. For example, found an old Manitou R7 fork for $20. Might need a $35 rebuild kit...

    I'd really like to see an endurance test of the fork you used on this bike. it seems feature rich for the money and after seeing your review on Amazon I purchased one for my 2020 Schwinn Boundary. So far so good on my bike, but I'm just an old man who rides cross country!

    5:26 can someone please tell me what diameter dropper post that is, because i recently got a polygon spy 6.0 carbon this year bought as a display bike for 500$ and it was never used, it was a bike from 2014 I really enjoy it it has even better parts for beginners... But I need a dropper post for it for the downhill and dirt jumping because every time I go dirt jumping i have to drop the seat manually or either bare with the seat high up while going downhill because of no time to drop the seat... And I have been Searching the internet for a dropper post that can fit a 27.2mm diameter seat tube and im hoping this is the one... I was wondering how much the price was for this PNW dropper? And they don't have it in my country so I have to ship it.. I'm sorry for the long talk I got carried away.. thank you for you time...

    Hi Seth, saw you using an air line to add brake covers. I remember an old British bike guy showing me how to add handlebar rubbers,.. put some petroleum fuel inside and the slip on easy and the spirit just dissipates and leaves them hard, they won't come off! Hope this helps... Chris Eley, Staffordsire, UK.
