Watch what happened when Ben Wallace and Paul Ryan swapped bikes

Mongoose teammates and British pros Paul Ryan and Ben Wallace may ride for the same company, but their bikes are really quite different. Paul’s is brakeless, steep, and super-short while Ben’s is way longer, gyro-equipped and set up for big transitions. RideBMX swapped them over while at Woodward for Mongoose Jam this week, and here’s the video… check it out.

“It’s crazy how different someone else’s can bike feel even with subtle differences in geometry–let alone an entirely different setup style. Their bikes couldn’t be much more different—and Paul’s bike is like half the size of Ben’s—but they adjusted almost immediately and started to shred.” – RideBMX
