Flipping a $300 Facebook Hardtail (Flip Bike EP2)
In this episode of Flip Bike, we answer an ad on Facebook Marketplace from a dad looking for a mountain bike for his daughter. With a few days to build her a bike, we find a GT hardtail and improve it as much as possible, trying to stay within budget. Can we sell it?

    I have watched and learned so much from Berm's clips, I can legit-ly say I can fix pretty much anything and pickup an inexpensive hobby [minus the tools] of fixing my and friends bike. for weekend entertainment, I have sold few bikes I had purchased for my use for little to no profit after all the parts were replaced/enhanced. I got the joy out of fixing and riding all kinds of bike since March of 2020. I now have three nice new Quick 5, Tarmac Sport, and Marlin 6 and love them all and plan to keep them even after WFH ends in few months.

    Are you able to make me a bike for trails, and racing? I would like to start riding trails, prob need good suspension for drop offs and stuff also. Just whatever you think would be good for a trail bike.

    Didn’t put into consideration your labor, time for picking up bike, going to sell bike, etc. $98 hardly seems worth it. Definitely be more shrewd going forward!

    So I've only watched a handful of these and I'm starting to sense that you never really intend on flipping these bikes for a "profit." That said, I do love seeing what's possible with a little (well, a lot) of know how and a goal in mind.

  • shwndh

    Is that one of those Bolany or Bucklos forks with no rebound adjustment? The authentic sticker sticker is hilarious! I would have just left it stealth.

    just for flip bike, you should make a sticker that says "Berm-Peak Tested", it would be suck

  • LeginNoslen

    Would of been better if you sold it for like $200 instead of ripping people off. Like if you did a good thing for someone else instead of making yourself a quick buck.

    Been a long time since I've watched Seth. Still at it I see....good for him. GT was my very first MTB (Backwoods). This Brand and their MTBikes are sorely overlooks...IMHO. I haven't own one since 1998, but see the quality and aesthetics still haven't changed. To back they aren't looked upon as a quality bike as Trek, Specialized just to name a few. Either way I hope/know she will enjoy the Bike.

  • devilish_dwarf

    I would find something to learn in video like this maybe 15 years ago.. but.. no matter how much I know about bikes or how bikes makes huge part of my life, I love these videos. I really do. Seth is making a great job! He knows his stuff, he knows how to make a nice videos, he knows how to choose relevant topics and he's just good in front of the camera. Thumbs up! For someone who is new to the sport, Seth's channel should be a hompage

    Such a great idea for a series, and gives kids motivation for some projects to earn a few bucks. Love to see all the success this channel has had over the years.

    What forks are those, the wife needs some air forks to replace the cheap srpingers that came on her DB 29er?

    • Holdens are beasts

      I would definitely not recommend those forks, try looking for a used fork.

      Actually never mind I just bought a full suspension sorry

    • Noli Emig
      Noli Emig

      @Braxton galles all of that you'd be looking at about 1070 (210 for drivetrain 220 for dropper+lever 30 for grips 15 for tubeless tape/valves/hardware and prolly around 200 for brakes if you get nice ones oh and a new fork would be like 400 if you want a good one

    • Braxton galles
      Braxton galles

      And put a 1-9 or 1-11 on it

    • Braxton galles
      Braxton galles

      How much would it cost you to put a dropper, new suspension, grips, make it tubeless, and better brakes

    GT with discs for 300$ that is a stupid good deal. One thing I don't like about these vids without disclaimers is that this deal is super rare. You don't see anything like this in Houston markets for that price, only road bikes and 500+ mountain bikes. It took me 2 months to find a Specialized hardroc (no db). New aluminum pedal, new tires, new seat, new grips is at least a 130$. At that point how do you even flip a bike for profit if you don't already have a parts bin?

    • Noli Emig
      Noli Emig

      Most riders who do their own maintenance and have been riding for longer then a year have a spare parts bin with more then enough parts

    Hey Seth, instead of those buklos forks, rockshox makes a steel station 30 mm station air fork called the Judy silver, I've been riding one for a few months and it's held up great even through tech and 25 foot gap jumps.

    When I heard it was going to be for a young girl, I was SO worried his flip would include painting the frame pink or something without asking her. I'm so relieved he didn't! Amazing work. She looks so happy!

    When is the next flip bike? I recently bought a peugeot vintage road bike for 30€ sold with a big lock and the bike is fine, just needed to change the cables, get a new air chamber and clean it good. I think you could buy cheaper bikes and make more profit!
