We Went to Taiwan to Make a Bike from the Future (and Actually Did) - The Grim Donut
- Published on: Monday, January 13, 2020
- Bike brands love to throw around "game changing" and "paradigm shifting" with each new release. But evolution is slow and bikes are usually just a few millimetres longer and a touch slacker every product cycle.
We've joked before about extrapolating where mountain bike development *might be* going in the future, but this year we decided to find out for real. We sent Mike Levy to Taiwan with a wild idea, to see if we could get it made.
What happens when a joke becomes reality? You call it the Grim Donut.
