Sam Pilgrim Mods Out His MTB With Steering Wheel & Bus Handle, Hijinks Ensue

The boisterous MTB trickster is back to shenanigans as usual — this time with a whacky jump bike modification.

Sam Pilgrim’s pretty good at a few things: slopestyle mountain biking, content creation, and turning his perennially adolescent ideas into realities.

All three powers converge when he fits his loud orange bike with a custom steering wheel and bus driver-style spin handle. He calls it “the loving and bestest thing ever.”

But is it a stroke of genius or a case of unmitigated lunacy? Watch Pilgrim test out his rig at a local bike park and, in his words, “shred what some may call The Gnar.”
