Today we will review 11 of the cheapest upgrades you can make to your mountain bike. I covered 10 even cheaper ones in another video, but most of these do more to actually improve performance than those did. These upgrades are so cheap, that tires didn’t even make the cut. Enjoy!
Here’s my old video from 2016
Here’s how to bed brake pads
Here’s how to go tubeless
Colored Valve Caps
Bash Guard up to 32t
Bash Guard to to 36t
11 Speed Chain

Dry Lube from video
This stuff is actually expensive as frigg for a bottle, but per application it’s only cents
Tubeless MTB Sealant
There are too many different ones to link to specifics. Please research what your air fork or can uses directly from your manufacturer.
Stealth axles are another thing which will be dependent on fork brand and width, so do your research. If you are unsure what your fork width is just look up your bike on its manufacturer’s website and check the specs. When it doubt, go to your local bike shop and they might just have it!
Single Speed Chainring
For most bikes with 2 or 3 rings up front, 104mm will be the size. How many speeds you have at the rear makes no difference up front.
