Espresso and John Deere are two of North Vancouver's most popular trails. But these blue flow lines are far from its gnarliest. So it was surprising when North Shore local and freeride legend Thomas Vanderham said they were two of his favourites. Surprising until you see Thomas' lines and realize that, while he's on the same trail, his riding is on another planet.

I wonder what rear hub he's using, it's much quieter than the tyres.

Or sound done in post? I miss using the tyre sound as a gauge of how much traction you have left.

i believe he's running xtr on there. perhaps he snagged a pre-production silent iteration? or the standard units are just that quiet. but yeah, love hearing the rrrrrrrrrriiiiiiippp-ing sound of tires aggressively worked (over swarming murder hornet freewheels).
