Phil Kmetz is a career professional mountain biker. He competes in urban downhill races that take him and his bikes down the steep stairs of South American cities.He knows his bikes and how to handle them.
In this video, Phil takes the 55 pound Huffy Carnage sold by Walmart on a downhill ride.Before the end of the ride, the handlebars were bent, the fork busted, and Phil had to resort to Freddy Flinstone brakes – stopping two wheels of steels with his feet.
It’s fun to watch but don’t miss the underlying message. You get what you pay for. Now you know why the bike at the bike shop cost more than the one at Wally’s World.
