For this year’s build I went with the Dawn Patrol build kit. I swapped out the grips and a few other small parts. What comes with the build kit was perfect for me.

Where do you live and what trails do you like to ride?

My favorite places to ride are flowy bike parks but living in the Ottawa area, we do not have much in that regard. I like to ride our local spots Camp Fortune and Mont St. Marie both of which are known for being more technical. My friends and I love to road trip and camp at mountains in the north eastern United States but unfortunately that was not possible this year. Thankfully, last year a few friends and I were able to start building our own dream trail at The Brose Farm and we are looking forward to adding some more to it!

Check out the Brose farm edit from 2020 here.

How’s the bike performing and what do you like about it?

It’s been a very Canadian winter and I have unfortunately not been able to take my bike out yet. Making the switch from a 29” Fugitive to this build makes me excited to ride smaller wheels and have more travel. This will make the bike more playful on jumps and trails. I can’t wait to get my wheels on the dirt!
