Video: Mini Bike Madness - Christmas Carnage Edition

The amount of fun you can have for £20 or less aboard rusty, unwanted children’s bikes is phenomenal. You’re going to crash a lot, and you might be bruised the next day, but the challenge of trying to master a tiny bike down the simplest of trails is a sight to behold. After the success of our 1st Mini Bike Special in 2020, Volume 2 is here and I’m pretty sure this is an annual tradition now. So take a look if you want a laugh this Christmas - as our sides split with laughter filming this. Enjoy.

Jonny the elf. He actually did bad ligament and ankle damage late in the day. Committed to the cause.

A few casualties on the bikes, but way less than you'd think. These little things are strong. But the brakes.. they ain't so strong.

Yeah - I know it's silly.. but we spend thousands upon thousands on fancy bikes and I bet you one day on an unloved old mini bike will bring you just as much thrill. Albeit a few more bruises.

All bikes have been cleaned/fixed up and donated to a local charity.

 Little old lady neighbor having yard sale, asking 20$ for 16"er'. I offered 15, stating the need for tubes, tires...A flat out NO!...20$! Thanks for being nice about it, I stated walking back home. The next day, there it was, sitting at the curb, FOR FREE, just waiting on the trash, or me to save it. I raised my new family member over my head in front of her house yelling, "Thank you, now I got it for FREE"! BMXed that thing out, and had a blast with a trail that I really do miss in my tiny old backyard. Good times come in ALL sizes, at least the bikes I found, bout time to break her out again.

 I like how you can see them getting more comfortable on those bikes as the clip progresses. Also, wow, kids' bikes are super overbuilt.
