Get Your Klunk On at the Bike Park

Date Jun 10, 2015

Who said you need high-tech suspension, gobs of travel, or even disc brakes to have fun at your local bike park? The Howru Klunk Crew gets rowdy on opening day of the aptly named Snow Summit Bike Park, with plenty of freeride action.


We can only imagine how sore their knees would be the next day.

Impressive. I can't decide if the coaster brake would be the biggest thing to adapt to or the lack of suspension?

Coaster brake definitely. I ride a lot of stuff on my fully rigid steel SS but it at least has V brakes. Hats off to Transition for making a $500 bike that a 300 lb dude can jump doubles on! How many DH bikes would he be crushing I wonder?

I agree with the coaster brake as well, I can easily switch from riding a DH bike to a DJ bike, but I find myself pedalling backwards very often to get them in the position I need them in, such as before a jump, steep section or putting my outside foot down in corners.
