Road Biker Blows Our Minds ‘Road Bike Party 3’

Sam Pilgrim takes the reins of Martyn Ashton’s series to show that a carbon Ridley Noah can not only scream down pavement, but also rip dirt trails and soar through the air.

Kitted out with Vision Metron 81 wheels, Full Speed Ahead K Force brakes, cranks, bar and stem, Prologo saddle and bar tape along with Shimano shifting, this is probably the blingest bike ever to get dirty in San Diego!

Can a road bike kill it in the dirt? If the rider is Sam Pilgrim, the answer is “Heck Yeah!”

The makers of the video claim no bikes were harmed in the making of the film. A couple of inner tubes definitely were.
