I made wooden wheels for my mountain bike – Will they last? Today I push the limits of these crazy MTB wheels made of wood to see which tricks, trails and jumps they can survive on, but will they actually work?
I’ve wanted to ride with wooden wheels for ages now and just couldn’t think of a way to fit them to my bike, so I done a quick search and saw that Olabmx channel had done a similar video on his BMX and that gave me knowledge of how to fix the wood to my bike! So I rushed out, got some 18mm ply and began making my own back wheel, after a quick bike maintenance session we had some wooden wheels connected to my bike and it was time to get out and try it! First stop were the local trails to see if the wheels actually worked before slowly moving around to different locations. I rode a pump track an urban MTB freeride spot and then the final banger was to hit a huge jump at Phoenix bike park and pull off an unthinkable trick! But how long can these wheels really last? – Sam Pilgrim
