Making Bikes..And Riding Them Too

Here is something fun as we head into the weekend. Yannick Granieri and Sam Reynolds visit Polygon bikes in Indonesia to see how their sponsor makes the machines they ride. OK, so there is all of one minute of manufacturing in this video but it is interesting to see how manual the operation at Polygon is, let alone the apparent lack of safety requirements when compared to more modern factories.

The rest of the video is just the cream on the top, especially if your fond of a little mountain biking as I am. Oh, and the welds on my Polygon have not cracked yet…but I have only ridden it twice.
