This Klunking video from the folks at Transistion Bikes gets a big HELL YEAH from me! The shotgun at 2:20 pretty much sets the tone for the rest of this short. Here’s what Kevin Menard, owner of Transition had to say: “Klunking is making a huge comeback and it’s a great way to experience your local trails on a totally new level. Our Klunker is ready to ride right out of the box, without any modifications, and it’s just as much fun riding trails as it is cruising around town. Once you start Klunking, you can’t stop.”
Comeback? I don’t know. But I do know we had a little klunking party this fall. The only rules were you couldn’t spend any money on your bike and it could only have a coaster brake.
