Pinkbike presenter Christina Chappetta has been riding the Whistler Mountain Bike Park for almost a decade now and it was the main reason she moved to Whistler from Colorado at the age of 22. In fact, if you watched our Getting to Know video
with her earlier this year, you'll know that she lived in a tent for almost two months when she first moved to Whistler because she was so committed to living in the resort town.
Christina knows her race lines and is a competitive racer; she came 6th at the Whistler EWS in 2018 and regularly wins the Whistler Phat Wednesday races, but she also has mad style on the bike and loves sending the huge jumps on A-Line and Dirt Merchant.
Recently, Christina got a new rig to ride the park with, so we thought it would be a good time to go over the details on it. Her Trek Session, which she's named "Starry Knight", is a size small and she's set up as a mullet.
Since the bike is set up as a mullet, Christina put the Mino links in the high BB setting and set the progression suspension chip to 25% to compensate for the smaller rear wheel. She says the set up has been working really well with the coil shock in the bike park.
Shimano Saint brakes for stopping duties as well as 203mm rotors front and rear.
