Millyard Racing's Downhill Bike: 13 Years Old, Still Ahead of Its Time 7

In this video, I will be talking about the mountain bike I made in 2007 for my son Stephen Millyard to ride in the British National Down Hill series after spending a small fortune on derailers, gear cables, and chains the previous year when he was riding a conventional DH bike. The Millyard Racing 001 bike solved all these problems by sealing the whole drive system inside the swinging arm out of harm's way in an oil bath. I will be making a more detailed part 2 video covering the revolutionary Millyard HyperRide shock and the 002 singles sided swinging arm version, with some riding and in-depth review. Thank you for watching my videos.

This guy's videos have filled my youtube suggestions over the last few weeks. There's a lot of great stuff in his archive!

The Kawasaki super six motorcycle engine he made was really cool.

Things to bear in mind (iirc)
It was only after Dirt tested it at the 1.04 they found out it was only 120mm(?) on the back.
He built it in 6 weeks
Take the shock out and the back end folds up so it fits on the back of his motorbike.
The shock is a scaled down version of what battletanks use.

No, it was not! The narrow rear was a strong feature of the bike and it was emphasized as such in Dirt Mag.
