Quiz: Can You Match the Riders to These 20 Custom Slopestyle Bikes?

Aug 9, 2020
by Ed Spratt  
If things had gone to plan we would be about to head into another week of riding and partying at the final stop of the Crankworx World Tour in Whistler. But with no Joyride this year we looked back through the archives and put together 20 different custom slopestyle bikes from the past few years but can you name the rider?

 I'm tempted to make one of these full sus 26 in wheeled slope bikes into an everyday trail ripper.

 That's what I did ! Fun as hell !!!

 It only works if you're short, or the bike has a long enough seat tube to accommodate a 170+mm dropper.

 I had a 26 dmr bolt. Kinda similar. As soon as you get gears, dropper, mtb seat, two disc brakes, real tires...it's no longer a super fun slope bike, just a small trail bike that climbs like shit and has too little travel . There are some options in the market of trail bikes that are going to get you covered better. 140 upfront and 130 in the rear. Size down too. The slope trail bike thing is not going anywhere...

 @seraph: Ticket S works for me with a 125mm dropper, 65mm stem and 30mm riser bars (5'11/180cm).

 My ideal do-absolutely-everything bike would have 100mm rear, 160mm front, a 250mm dropper which could be fully slammed, and 2.6 tires.

 I personally like Reed Boggs orange and white Ticket S. It's the best build here in my opinion!

 I cant match anything to anyone. I thought PB was a hard tail , XC site ? What is going on?

 @scary1: No see because XC and lycra are lame too. This site is for people who like to say "down country" and watch WC DH races. Duh.

 A tech question. Which cable brake gyro set up do most of these guys run? I see a few and they look tidy. I have a new frame and it seems like you have to drill two holes into the head tube also. Thx for the heads up.

 It used to be called the slopestyle gyro. Title MTB bought it and now its sold under them.

 @Jaminlk: Hey thanks bro, yeah I saw that yesterday and I'm still crying about the price. Gotta save up a few more pennies I guess. Frown Sucks that they're "unavailable" in the US
  • 1 0
 @Jaminlk: f*ck thats like the best lines on a slope bike ever. How's it feel?

I noticed genon doesn't really use his stitched 720 anymore Frown seems like a lot of the slope riders are just sucking it up and riding hardtails
