Nearby trail system and your favorite trails: 

Mt Prevost and Mt Tzouhalem are the two main zones close to home, as well as some hidden gems in Shawnigan Lake. My favorite trails would be Mt. T. loam line and Bloodline in Shawnigan lLake. 

What's the intended use for your new bike?

I ride fast, flowy, steep trails with as many features as possible. The Chilcotin 167 is  the perfect trailbuilding, freeride rig. I plan to continue building big features in the woods of Shawnigan Lake. This bike has the capability to get me to the top while also being able to handle the big hits while still being playful in the air. 

Chilcotin 167

What model and colour? I’m riding the Chilcotin 167, in Ano Black and I love it!

How tall are you? What size frame did you get?  I am 6'1 and ride a large. It is the perfect fit for me. 

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

The bike is set in the slack setting, which I love.  I am running Noble TR38 wheels and they are incredibly strong. I have the ZEB fork, with the Rock Shox coil in the rear. I have all Deity points of contact and a SRAM drive train with SRAM Code R brakes. I also have titanium Ewing cranks.



What do you love about your new bike?

My favorite part about the Chilcotin is that it is all thrills, no frills. This bike is clean looking, super solid and climbs like a dream. It's responsive and playful but also eats up chunky terrain.
