The North Shore: 5th Horseman, Pingu, Upper Oil Can

What do you ride (type of terrain)?  What's the intended use for your new bike?

Everything! I like to ride it all, jumps, flow, super chunk. The Chilcotin really shines in high speed, rough terrain. 


What model and colour? 

Chilcotin 167, Purple Delirium throwback

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

I’m 6ft tall, I ride a large, and it fits perfectly!

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

It’s an XT build with SR Suntour suspension. I’m running 220 HS2 rotors front and rear. I’ve also got 165mm 5Dev cranks and a 50mm titanium 5Dev stem.

What do you love about your new bike?

Knolly’s all have a super solid construction that I can trust and I love the kinematics - so plush!
