Watch Guys With Amazing Beards Build The Perfect Mountain Bike
Bikes are like pretty much anything else – a vast spectrum of quality from low-end, mass-produced stuff to individual pieces lovingly labored over by devoted craftsmen. Being a professional mountain biker, Harlan Price needs the latter. That’s where Steve Bilenky comes in. Along with welder Tom Faust, the veteran bike-maker demonstrates that building a bike up to Price’s – and his own – standards is both an art (“A form of sculpture,” Bilenky calls it) and a science (“The way a bicycle handles is determined by the geometry of it,” says Faust). Watch the magic happen – and bask in the facial hair – above in “Behind the Craft,” presented by Blue Moon.
