It’s that time of year when everyone gets to show off their fresh paint! Seeing as on the Island we had a maximum of a half an hour worth of snow our bikes saw quite a bit of use. Over the fall and winter NSMB had refurbished the team, and started some new relationships with some awesome sponsors! We’ve been lucky enough to continue with some old sponsors and excited to be working with some new ones. I had a quick trip to vancouver last week (an hour and a half from North Van to Tsawwassen) to pick up my new kits from Specialized, Sram, Maxxis, DT Swiss, and Pedros.

For 2010 I’ll be spending my time on a Specialize P3, SX, and Demo 8! Fully equipped with DT swiss wheels, Maxxis Tires, Sram drive train, Truvativ bar/stem/cranks/pedals, Rock shox suspension, and Avid brakes. 

I’m still waiting on a couple goodies for the P3, and wheelsets for the SX and Demo, but I’ve gotten the SX and Demo put together so I can fulfill my urges! Check em out below.

SX: Being my favorite bike, it’s pretty much the same as I had it set up last year except I’ve brought the travel of the front fork from 4″ to 4.75″ with the new Lyric Air DH. With the slacker head tube the bike feels a lot more comfortable up front.

Demo 8: VERY EXCITED about this! Can’t wait to get my romp on with this bad sally. She’s set up slack, and plush. Gonna be really fun for those Prevost rips and summer time ski hill shreds! Believe it or not without the spring or rotors it was sitting around 36lbs.
