Martyn takes you through his awesome Mountain Trike which was built bespoke for him by Tim Morgan from Mountain Trike (http://gmbn.eu/MountainTrike). Martyn's long term sponsors Animal UK were kind enough to buy this for Martyn so he could get out on the trails with us a bit more! Expect to see much more of Martyn coaching and getting involved in our upcoming videos! The full spec is below and we can't wait to see him out on the trails with it.

Comments

Murray Macfarlane : Sooooooo...A-Line?

Tom Ashcroft : the start of a future for people with disabilities to get out on the trails. be so cool seeing someone on the trails with one of these, inspirational.

Anton Peterson : It would be so cool to see you shred the trails with this.

Mike D : Waiting to see you on a flow trial with this beast! :P

Theodore Roberts : Ingenious engineering like this makes me so excited. Super cool contraption.

Benjamin Terblanche : Trials triking😁

Sorin Vasile Bogdan : I would like to see an ''e-bike'' version of this, with pedal assist, and slightly slacker geometry where the rider sits more laid back for descending, with the feet being slightly higher from the ground for clearance. Any thoughts on this?

Gary Collier : Looking forward to the release of "Mountain Trike Party 1 featuring Martyn Ashton". I'm not kidding. I really believe he'll be doing some killer tricks on that thing real soon. Martyn, all I can say is you are incredibly inspirational. Keep it up!

Daniel Watts : Martyn is a legend!! I'd love to have a go on that wheelchair bike

Max Torque : and the obvious next question, which is faster, 24" or 29" wheels on your mountain trike??? ;-)

take good care of the forest, dewey : We asked... You delivered. Thanks Mart. Nice bit of roost too 🀘... And given that asking seems to work... Can we have another video of you on your Full Sus bike.

Scott Gardiner MTB : A total inspiration and would like to see things like this more available for those that need it! #martynisking

mountaintrike : So lovely to read all the comments on here! A fab first look at Martyn's Trike - great explanation of the workings of the Mountain Trike in such a clear and interesting way. Love the modifications he has already done and we can't wait to see more from Martyn with his Trike. Thanks for sharing and spreading the MT love - we just want to help as many people as possible to be able to access and enjoy the outdoors πŸ‘β€οΈπŸž

Carloswithac : What's up everyone? Been waiting for this one!

Jessie Wadkins : I saw Mackey from the Syd and Mackey channel following a guy on a great setup at Sea Otter. He laying forward and shredding the trails. I would look into that setup. Cheers for never giving up on the sport we love.
