What's Honza riding this season?
I am riding a Warden and it's quite unique!
-medium size frame (even though I'm a bit over 6 feet)
-7 speed DH drivetrain
-no dropper post
-dirt jump seat and flat pedals
-A 40mm stem and 750mm bars, with a 40mm rise (just like my dirt jump bike). This is an ultimate shred machine and I love it!
I have a Rock Shox Zeb Ultimate up front, Rock Shox Super Deluxe Ultimate Air in the back, DT Swiss 350 hubs laced on DT Swiss EX511 rims with Maxxis Tires (Minion DHF / Dissector combo for dirt jumps, Assegai / Minion DHR II for trails), SRAM Code RSC Brakes with Miles Racing rotors and pads, Sram X01/GX 7 speed drivetrain and Chromag / NS Billet bars, stem, seat and pedals. Plus the one and only, Sensus Swayze Lock-on grips!
This season's ride plan:
I am finally back home in the Czech Republic after many years of travelling and I really feel like I belong here. The mountain bike scene progressed a lot over the years and we are getting more airtime in bikeparks, more trails and more spots to ride. So my plan for this year is to ride as much as I can, explore what we have around here, build unique features and bring a bit of that BC vibe over here! There's nothing like being out there in the woods, working on something you really like, creating new lines and then testing them for the first time, the excitement, I love it! And the Warden is perfect tool for it!
