Being the environmentalists we are, we have a rather soft spot both for bikes, and for mountains. Therefore, it comes as no surprise that we also keep mountain bikes very close at heart.
It is for these reasons that we saw fit to introduce you to this video, which is basically a crash-course into how mountain bikes are made.
The fact that this two-wheeled means of getting around is fast, tough and light – all at the same time – is something most people are well aware of. Still, the technology and dedication that go into manufacturing them are quite impressive.
Not to mention the fact that this footage also provides some explanation for why it is that mountain bikes cost as much as they do.
