Frothin’ for another BUILT video? No worries. Connor Fearon’s prototype Forbidden DH bike is an absolute bloody beaut. The small Canadian company have been quietly developing this DH bike over the last few years and are finally ready to go racing.
Connor is a true blue Aussie so it comes with no surprise that he is charged by a well-known Australian superfood: Vegemite. The yeasty, grease-like substance is choc a bloc full of the good stuff you need for going racing, so why not paint your bike to look the same? With Crankworx Cairns coming up its going to be a great opportunity for Connor to get on the bike, sink a few tinnies and enjoy a race a home for once. The frame will be available soon, but the paintjob? Mate, you’re dreamin’. This is a one-off.
