Where do you live & what’s your local trail network?

Duncan BC, mainly ride Mt Prevost and Mount Tzhouhalem

What types of trails do you ride?

Mostly flow trails and dirt jumps. Sometimes slower tech trails

How tall are you and what size frame do you ride? How does your bike fit you?

I’m 5’9” and I ride a size medium. The bike fits really well and I’m really enjoy the low stand over. 

What’s your build spec and did you do anything custom to it?

Fork - Marzocchi z2 140mm. 

Bar/stem - 31.8 Chromag bars cut to 740mm. 40mm stem. 

Wheels - Spank/Dt Swiss hubs and RaceFace rims 

Tires - Maxxis assegai and DHR2 (I think) 

Drivetrain - SRAM SX

Brakes - Saint levers with a mix of a Deore and XT calipers.

For customization, my reverb line was too short from a previous bike so I cut an old handlebar, sliced it in half and bent it so I could mount it under my bottle cage with the remote behind my bottle. Other than that it’s pretty simple. 


How does the bike perform? And what do you like about it?

The bike rides super well. It took some adjusting to get used to a hardtail and 140mm of travel again. I like the versatility it offers.
