Flaming Mountains - what a name, what a great time we had! And it will be not the last time! After our Tibet trip, we knew, next time, we’re going there. Flaming Mountains, or better known from the bike movie „where the trails ends“ with Darren Berrecloth. It was really flaming, everything, the bikes, the dust, the rides we had in the slippery conditions. Luckily, the locals came and showed us around. Unforgettable moments we had there. Young Gun Gregory Allya Warjri from Shillong / Meghalaya, rides his bike as if the mountain is in flames! It’s great to see a young talented rider get so much passion for riding bikes, so far away from resources of biking. The new Scott Aspect 655i, specially geared it up for India, and the downhill bike Taokas Dumun 275 made in China, are interesting bikes for Asia, specially for Asia, so we went through both, and you can read in our preview how both bikes stood up against the flames.
