How tall are you? What size frame did you get? How does it fit you?

I am 6 feet and run a large frame. It fits perfect for my intended use and I wouldn’t want it any bigger!

What's your bike spec? Did you do anything custom?

I ran the front brake through the stem for barspins.

The basic specs are:

29 Spank Oozy rim/hub 

Maxxis assegai 29 2.5wt

Deity black label handlebars 38mm rise 

Deity stem, grips, seat, pedals

Raceface turbine cranks 

Box drivetrain 

Rockshox rear shock 

Rockshox Lyric 160 front fork 

What do you love about your new bike?

I love being able to go big on the Chilcotin; it handles very similar to my downhill bike. The Chilcotin is the best “all around bike” you can find.
