Thanks to everyone who’s supported my riding and this site. Without you I’d be working at Hot Dog on a Stick!

Full Bros – in alphabetical order

Fate Clothing

An independent clothing company.

  • Switched Pant (test color) – roomy but not silly, and perfect for riding in snow

  • Softshell jacket – casual yet very technical

  • Script down jacket – ultra cozy for those 0-degree days

  • Shifted jacket – fully waterproof shell


The Fix/Rhythm Cycles

The Fix is a downhill/freeeride/dirt jump shop in Boulder, CO. Home to the Mountain States’ top gravity team as well as some sweet dirt jumps. Rhythm Cycles is their online operation.


Fox Racing Shox

The first name in high performance suspension

  • 40 RC2 fork and DHX 5.0 shock on the Demo 8

  • 36 RC2 fork and RP3/AVA shock on the Enduro

  • Talas RLC fork and RP3 shock on the SX

  • Talas RLC fork on the P.1


Maxxis Tires

A quality tire for every purpose

I run Minions and High Rollers for downhill. Usually 2.5 Super Tacky. Minions are hard to beat in most situations; High Rollers work a bit better in loose conditions, and they make a fast rear tire. Oh, and I’m using the Maxxis rim strip with some Stan’s goop to make my tires tubeless.


Specialized Bicycle Components
High end bikes and components

Primary fleet

  • 2005 Demo 8 for downhill

  • 2005 S-Works Enduro for burly trail riding and Super D

Secondary fleet

  • 2003 P.1 for urban, jumping and errands

  • 2003 S-Works Enduro for trail riding

  • 2003 Allez Pro road bike for road (duh)

  • 1995 Allez Carbon road bike as a spare; too nice to get rid of

  • 1995 Deja Two off-road tandem for trail riding and occasional racing


  • BG Pro shoes for XC

  • Prototype 2006 Sawpit shoes for heavy-duty DH

  • Prototype 2006 Trail 120 shoes for aggressive trail riding


WTB - Wilderness Trail Bikes
Tires and parts with that NorCal trail-riding soul

  • 2.4 Mutano Raptor Race tires for trail riding in hard, dry conditions

  • 2.3 Weirwolf Race and Team FR tires for downhill in general conditions

  • 2.24 Moto Raptor tires for trail riding on wet conditions

  • 2.1 Nano Raptor Race tires for stupid-fast mountain cross racing

  • Shadow V Stealth for ultralightweight riding and racing

    Thanks to Elayna from Fox who suggested we make a pump track in our backyard we are now building it. My youngest loves to ride and has been since he was 3. No landscape no lawn. Still in progress. Blick Ry is wearing the Gascans you gave him. Thanks!
