I love bikes. Since I got my first proper MTB, I have always tried to make them custom. Never one to take a bike off the showroom floor has been an addiction. I have spent more time putting every facet of my new bike than I ever have before. Working at @mrpbike , a brand that focuses on building top notch components in house led me to make several selections based upon that. Performance was of course the priority. The selection of the frame is where it all began with the @ridegg Trail Pistola, a 130mm 29er. Made in Denver, and having fantastic geo, I was set. Mounting up one of our Ribbon forks built by @wasted_guerrilla and an SXg, she was starting to take shape. My brakes were hand assembled by @yuroshek , previously of @hopetech . Wheels featuring their new USA made hubs are courtesy of @ridefastracing . As one who had previously suffered from Carpal Tunnel, the US made @revgrips provide some excellent relief on long rides and gnarly descents. Cockpit and pedals are from @deitycomponents Components who obsesses over making the best parts out there. Final touches include a @oneupcomponents EDC steerer tool, SRAM Eagle Drivetrain, Spurcycle bell, Maxxis tires, and Fox post. #bike #mtb #mrpbike #mrpness #mrpribbon #ridegg #ridefasttakechances #trailpistol #deitycomponents #hopetech #spurcycle #sram #srameagle #oneupcomponents #revgrips
