  • 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.
