YT Shows Off Andreu Lacondeguy, Bienvenido Aguado Alba, Cam Zink & Ethan Nell's Custom Rampage Bikes

Oct 23, 2019
by YT Industries  
#longlivejordie, The YT Family is going to be riding in honor of our friend and freeride legend Jordie Lunn. We would like to take the opportunity to shine a light on the fundraising initiative for Jordie’s family and friends. Please feel invited to learn more about the initiative.

12 months after presenting 80’s themed frames for last year’s edition of Rampage, we have taken another approach this time round. Each bike is ‘rad as f*ck’, has a badass set up and an earthy vibe. The colorway doesn’t stand out quite as much but will increase the sense that the riders blend into and harmonize with the gnarly landscape. Rampage is not about working against the mountain but finding a way to work with the given terrain and create in order to succeed. After spending days and nights working on ideas and digging creative lines in the desert the guys are looking to send it down the hill and being creative on their custom rigs. It is all about getting that one run dialed and the crowd stoked.

bigquotesRampage is for sure the highlight of my year! I come from here, so I feel comfortable with the dirt and riding exposed lines. It’s the one big contest of the year when we can really show what freeride is about. Creativity of build and riding go hand-in-hand. Without a cool line, you can’t really do cool crazy stuff. There is no limit to creativity at Rampage, there are so many features that you can build towards your riding style and style of tricks you do. It is hard to say if the crowd is more stoked on creative lines or creative tricks. People who don’t know that much about mountain biking might get more stoked about seeing a big double flip. I think the athletes are more stoked on creativity of the lines rather than tricks. I think the winning recipe is a big, fast line to the bottom with as many hits and tricks and possible paired with plenty of style and fluidity. That is what I am going for.Ethan Nell

bigquotesThe smile on my face after I got invited couldn’t have been bigger. I have been working hard to get more dialed on my DH bike this season and it is awesome to see the hard work pay off. Now, I am ready to rock! It would be awesome to reach the Top 10, but I mainly want to get the crowd stoked and feel proud of what I can throw down. I want to prove, that it was right to get that call. My contest experience should help me, but I am still a rookie in the desert and will need to adapt to the terrain quickly. In order to create the perfect line, I worked with Ivan Carmova, a DH rider in his own right and shaper in La Poma Bikepark, and Henry Wilkins, who has tons of experience and has also worked with Cam Zink in the past. I am looking forward to the challenge and hope to send a crazy front flip at some point!Bienvenido Aguado Alba

 So for anyone interested I asked Michelin for a comment on when that 26" rear tire would be available to us mortals and got this response... eventually:

"The DH 34 in 26x2.40 will be available at spring 2020."

 Noob question - why single speed have derailleurs?
  • 1 0
 They are not derailleurs, they are only tensioners. As the suspension compresess, the distance between bottom bracket and the wheel axle becomes longer. This is the famous chain growth.
