What's your bike spec?  

My new Endorphin is a fully custom build. I replaced the original parts with SRAM XX1 components and Hope Tech4 E4 brakes because of their high performance lever feel and the power they offer. The rear suspension has been upgraded to include a compression adjustment, while the fork is stock. I fitted it with Industry Nine Enduro 305 wheels in pink and purple, and finally had the bike customized at Lagrange bike for a unique look.  It’s the latest collaboration between Tomahawk Cycles and La Grange.

How tall are you/what's your inseam?

I measure 163cm, my inseam is 73cm and the small size fits me perfectly.  I have a 35mm stem and the handlebar has been cut down to 740mm. I run a 170mm dropper post which is great. 

What are your favourite trails to ride?

I love riding fast and flowy trails like Jester in Burke, Vermont.  We have a new bike park in Oka and I can practice my jumps and drops all day long. I also discovered Moab last year which became my favorite place to ride, especially a trail called Rodeo in the Navajo Rocks trail system.

What do you love about your new bike?

The color, of course! 

The mullet configuration gives me confidence over the rough stuff, and the smaller rear wheel provides good acceleration and keeps the bike fun. I feel very comfortable and stable on this bike.  My goal this season is to clear some tabletop jumps.
