High-pivot bikes are great at handling chaos. We found that out in our first-ride review of the Forbidden Dreadnought back in February, and in our long-term test just a few weeks ago. They have a way of insulating you from the unpredictability that happens down at the tires. And you can do what you want with that. You can either stay insulated and float blissfully through the chunder, or you can use that newfound security to go beyond just floating and do some smashing and carving. That’s the approach that Stéphane Pelletier (who is likely answering emails and filling out TPS reports at Forbidden as you read this) takes in “Let it Run,” the edit Forbidden just dropped. Filmed in Nelson, British Columbia soon after filming the launch video for the Dreadnought, “Let it Run” shows what a “dry” day in Nelson can look and sound like.
