Watch Connor Fearon’s Vegemite inspired Forbidden come together

Need some easy listening/watching goodness to ease you into the weekend? Look no further!

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. Connors love for the well-known Australian superfood: Vegemite is showcased for all to see. 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 at home for once.

The frame will be available soon, but the paintjob? Mate, you’re dreamin’. This is a one-off.
