My New MTB Has Weird Parts on it

My New MTB Has Weird Parts on it

It’s new bike day, but this time we’re switching things up a little bit. In this video I’ll go over all the strange part choices on my new bike.

Thanks to my sponsors Diamondback Bikes, Box Components and Slime Sealant. Without them, I wouldn’t be making these videos every week.

There are no other sponsors in this video, and the parts featured are just what either came on my bike or I installed later.
