Well, Pinkbike takes a stab at that very question in their latest video. This was an entertaining and educational watch, dispelling many of the myths and misconceptions people often have when it comes to making frames overseas. Albeit, we’re talking full suspension mountain bike frames here. I highly recommend it.
PinkBike: Monkey Likes Shiny and the Rampage Trophies
“People like to use ADD as a crutch, I think it’s a blessing.” -Jeff Tiedeken
This year, at the Red Bull Rampage, Jeff from Monkey Likes Shiny supplied the trophies. If you recall, Jeff made that super slick gravity bike a few years back. PinkBike has a nice story up of Jeff that you should check out for some insight into how Jeff’s hyper creative mind works.
The Coastal Crew
A recent Pinkbike feature had me sifting through the MTB video mecca that is the Coastal Crew. Who are they? Where do they ride? What do they ride? All of these answers can be found both in the video above and at their Pinkbike feature. Seriously, don’t miss this one.
Thanks for sharing this video, Michael!
