Stable

Here’s a quick preview of what’s currently in my stable. Some of my bikes have names. I don’t really know why, I’ve never named my cars or anything else I’ve owned. I suppose I have a closer more personal attachment to the steeds in my stable and their names emphasize that relationship.

The Sight

The 2014 carbon sight won a boatload of awards for good reason. It’s a fantastic trail bike that’s far more capable that it’s title would suggest. I use it for everything between XC racing and full DH/Park riding. It’s a blast to ride and slays everything that requires pedaling and full suspension.

The Sexy Beast

I began riding Valmont Bike Park in the mornings as I learned how to jump. It became apparent that since I live 10 minutes from the park and ride there all the time it would make sense to get a bike that’s made for that type of riding rather than continue to use my full carbon trail bike all the time.
