About Me

I'm a young rider who want's to know as much as possible about bikes. I love flowy trails and really ding grabbing air.... I'm willing to make the climb for epic descents.. Building and exploring trails is a blast for me. And i'm happiest on my bike or at a bike shop..

@Alvin BTW 96BCD was the WRONG chainring. Only Shimano XT and XTR cranks work with 96bcd, Deore and I imagine SLX use 104bcd..... Just so you know from now on!
