The bicycle saga comes to a close! James May has built this bicycle straight out of the box and in this finale, he takes to the saddle to try the finished product.
Watch the behind the scenes here:
James forgot to finish the brake adjustment on the bike, he might delve into that in a future video!

  • James.... build a decent bike. No modern bike has front mech. Get a Sram or Shimano with a 50 tooth cog and where is your dropper

  • Sorry James this isn’t building a bike. This is just final assembly and tweaking a bike. But i enjoyed the fact that this partial assembly took four parts...😂 excellent

  • So James has built an old fashioned 20th century hardtail mountain bike. Perhaps he could next try building a modern 21st century full suspension XC bike with 1 front gear and 12 rear (1x12), hydraulic brakes, tubeless tyres ... and aim to keep the entire bike under 11kg.

  • In the beginning I thought your videos were cute. How about you go volunteer at a food pantry , soup kitchen or do something to help those less fortunate then yourself. Enough already with this drivel. Go make a real difference in the world. Build a bike for some poor kid whose parents cant afford. Open up your pub to frontline workers or serve food to the homeless.
