A few weeks ago, Steve took his best man Sam along for the monumental challenge of crossing the whole of Wales without touching any paved roads! The two bikes that were used were actually quite different, yes both are 2021 models and use the same 4th generation Bosch motor, but one was a 160mm Trail Bike and the other was a 180mm 'aggro' Enduro bike. - The question we are often asked is 'how much travel do you need?' 🤔 In association with Whyte Bikes | https://whyte.bike/ Subscribe to EMBN: http://embn.me/subscribenow Pick up official EMBN merch: https://embn.me/zP Follow us on Instagram or Facebook! @emountainbikenetwork Sign up to the EMBN newsletter: https://embn.me/newsletter Please submit your content to our uploader: https://upload.embn.com/ we love to check out what you have been up to and may feature it on the show!
