Knolly Rider: Nic Zilinski
How tall are you? And how did you set up your new ride?
I'm 6ft tall, riding a large warden that I built with fun in mind!
Ape index: ~1
Stem length: 32mm
Crank length: 165mm
What’s your build spec? Did you add anything custom?
Rockshox suspension with Shimano drivetrain and brakes. I run my cables extra long for those slope-duro bar spins. I also over-forked it with a 180mm Zeb.
What’s the intended use (where are you riding it)?
It was built to ride the sea to sky area (North Shore, Squamish, Whistler...)
Where do you live?
Coquitlam, British Columbia
What’s your favourite trail?
That's a tough one with all the great riding around, but I really love Dirt Merchant in Whistler.
Why do you love your new ride?
What's not to love!? I've built this thing to be tough and fun. It can plow through anything, but is also ready to dance around and maybe do a few tricks.
