IG handle: I don't have one… my parents wont buy me a phone yet; they don't want me having too much screen time.
Where you live: Coquitlam, BC
Nearby trail system and your favorite trail?
Burke Mountain, Eagle Mountain, SFU, & the North Shore.
I have lots of favorite trails! Here's a quick hit list:
Marvin and Scouts on Eagle Mountain
Red R to Green Bastard on Burke
Double Dog and World Cup at the Silverstar Bike Park
Original Sin and Aline Tech at the Whistler Bike Park
What do you ride (type of terrain)? What's the intended use for your new bike?
I like to ride tech trails, fast flow trails and I'm getting better at the jump trails in the bike park. Jumps are sort of scary sometimes and crashing hurts. I crashed really hard this summer at Sun Peaks but I got to ride in the patrol van to the hospital. And this past summer I learned to like the challenge of climbing up the mountain.
I have one bike and I use it for everything (trail & park)! When I hit the park, my dad changes the rear shock to bike park mode and I’m good to go.
What model and colour?
My new Endorphin is shiny silver with blue accents. I love the colors and the blue accents go with my riding outfits.
How tall are you?
My dad and Noel said I was 4 foot 10 when I got the bike in the spring of 2023 but I'm taller now.
What size frame did you get?
I ride a size extra small.
How does it fit you?
The bike fits me great but I’m growing lots since I got it… maybe Noel will make me another bike?!

Did you do anything custom?
Yes! I put a bunch of bike stickers, a water bottle holder and a waterproof walkie talkie so if I take off on my dad and brother or get lost in the forest… they can call me.
My dad said I have a Mullet set up: 26” rear wheel with a 27.5” front wheel. I like the front tire, it's grippy and tracks well on the trails. The smaller rear wheel gave me room when I stood over the bike. My dad said there is a pink noodle in my rear tire to help with dents. It didn't really work too well as I dented my wheel at the bike park hitting something!
My dad said I also have custom cranks which is157.5 mm long. It seems to work…. what is a crank again?
I have this tool thing in my stem. It's green. We seem to use it alot as it is fast to get out.
What do you love about your new bike?
It’s squishy on the downhill, feels good overall and makes me feel brave and confident. I like going fast and hitting jumps and drops. The brakes are real good too.
If I ride well and do not complain, then afterwards I get treats with my brother (slurpees or ice cream and sometimes fries).
How’s the bike performing?
It's awesome! It helped me get second place in the Enduro Kids Race at Crankworx! i look forward to riding it again in a few months but right now it is ski time!
