PODCAST - Building The Forbidden Bike Brand with Redburn Design Founder Alastair Beckett

One again we sat down with Gareth of MTB Tribe to chat about the launch of a young new brand, Forbidden Bike Company.

This episode talks about all of the trials and tribulations faced in the early stages and shares some insight into the process that the team involved went through to get it to where it was.
