    Prosthetic leg MTB rider video 1st ride w one leg!!

    Just got him started out on a frankenbike, SS 26 old Mongoose rigid 38-20 gear! Not bad at all. Saving up for a 29er Hardtail with gears.!! He did awesome and can really haul ass. Now to get him on a good bike!!

    First ride one leg SS and no shirt. All a bit hard core, but very impressive.

    That's awesome!! I'm a newb, but that looked like a really fun place to ride. Not overly technical but pretty fast.

    Wow, until he crashed I didn't realize the guy leading was the one with the prosthetic leg, I thought the camera guy was. He moves really naturally with that thing.

    Thats very cool. Saw this at Sea Otter this past weekend at the Fox booth. Wonder if this is an actual part of their R&D . . . should be if not.

    That's Monster Mike's Moto Knee. Mike is 1 cool cat! Here is a video of him talking about his accident and building the Moto knee. I also have a video of him last year ripping down some sweet single track. You guys are a great inspiration to folks that have lost a leg. Keep doing what you do and never give up!
    Cheers
