Scott Alleyn - Bike Check

Jan 2, 2010 at 15:20
by David Bennison  

I have known Scott Alleyn for well over 10 years now, I got a chance to sit down and talk to him about the 2010 riding season and what his plans are for this coming season.

Interview and pics of Scott's new Dartmoor bike inside,

Who are you?
I am Scott Alleyn, I grew up just outside of Kimberley, BC on an acreage. I am 21 and I like to ride 26" bikes down mountains or on sculpted dirt piles.

What other sports are you into?
Biking is the only sport that I find fun enough to keep doing.


When did you start riding?
I started riding when I was 6 but I got my first decent bike when I was 12, it was a 2001 Kona Roast, that's when I remember starting to build ladder bridges and big drops to pinner flat landings. Ever since then, I just kept progressing.

How was the '09 season?
As far as 2009 goes I just biked a lot and learned some new tricks, I really didn't travel as much as I wanted too. I went to Creston for the Goat Style bike jam and helped build it, then rode it. That competition is always a blast. I also did some filming for a 2009 promo filmed and edited by Nic Genovese,

What makes you try to push your limits?
When you learn a new trick you just get this awesome feeling, so I try to push myself to keep getting that feeling.

When building dirt jumps, what makes you come back day after day?
When I am building jumps I just keep thinking about how sick and fun it'll be to ride this jump once I finish it. Then once I am finished, I ride it and it always turns out to be worth it.


What's your favorite place to ride?
My old jumps that were torn down when my parents sold their house.

What are your goals for 2010?
For 2010 I would like to travel a ton and enter some bigger competitions, such as Creston Goatstyle, Teva Mountain Games and Crankworx Colorado. I also hope to get a part in a bike film.

Any shout outs and thank yous?
I would like to thank Dartmoor Bikes for hooking me up with my new ride, they are just branching out into North America this year. Go check out their site here.

 Player is light (1,95kg = 4,3lbs)and a very simple construction. Idea of Player is to make alu frame with street/dirt geometry (chainstay 380mm = 14,96"!), ideal for dirt, park, or hardtail slopestyle. I feel true satisfaction from this project.

 23.5 lbs? holy shit

 Nice but unfortunately anyone who takes a closer look at this company will see that they are a catalogue brand that takes parts from the taiwaneese 7-11 and then sticks their logo on... These guys really need to start making their own stuff to become legit...

 Aussies can buy it @ www.fearlesscycles.com.au

Dartmoor also have a pinkbike account.

2010 website for Dartmoor will be up soon aswell.

My bike has the 09 fevers- slightly thinner and they out preformed my Dark cycles arachnid.

you can also check out Dartmoor related talks on www.rotorburn.com under the 4x/street section.

 Dartmoor is the new NS, blackmarket, 24seven.. Yes, dartmoor is the new everything! Their products for 2010 is amazing! And this is the only aluframe i have ever liked (Two4player aswell offcourse)! Dartmoor bikes, you own! Keep the progression! Looking forward to build my Cody Wink

 Hope it goes well for you twoSIX: A majority of my do-it-all bike is Dartmoor and it's been great. From the wheelset to the guide to the scandium bars. Will be putting the funky stem on come late feb.

Oh and enjoy the pedals: I went from the Dark cycle ara's to the fevers: much more comfortable for a pedal not being used for the ultimate grip situation.
  • + 3
 i love those pedals, really clean design. just one point - what if you smash a pin?? it will mess up the threads removing said smashed pin making the fact that they're replacable, pointless..
  • + 2
 ye but my freinds done it on his pedals few times cuz he grinds the pins looked all fucked but with abit of forcing the bolts came loose and can replace easy, so i dont think its much of a problem, i could be rong tho...

 Is it like a new frame or somenthing? Dartmoor's Two6Player is an aluminum frame whereas that one is Cromolly isn't it?
  • + 1
 here, if you can understand it this may help
  • + 1
 If you click on English (upper right corner) it all reads well, but I haven't been able to find that particular model yet. The one I came by was an aluminium frame whereas that one is a Cromolly one. Maybe it is the old one or something and it'll be some time until they gonna put it on display. I like the frame though.
  • + 1
 I am a little bit confused now. It looks like Cromolly, but those weldings, after close inspection, look like it was an aluminum frame instead. Now, I am not sure.
  • + 2
 The one on the site is still the 2009 model, this is the newly revamped 2010 model. The site is being changed as we speak and all the new 2010 parts should be up witin a week.
  • + 4
 The frame in the pics above is aluminum. I don't care what the site says. It is clearly alu. if you look at the welds/tubing.
  • + 2
 That's what I thought.
  • + 2
 I've got dartmoor two6player 2009, its a quite good frame!
  • + 3
 nice nice bike !!!!
  • + 2
 BTW, is 6" like 140mm or 160mm? (I think about the nano disc)
  • + 1
 6" is 160mm. But this rotor has also 140mm option.
  • + 1
 the rear hub looks wide.how wide is it?
  • + 1
 Its a standard 135mm hub.
  • + 2
 very nice bike :X
  • + 1
 anyone who know where i can get the frame? because i love it!!
  • + 4
 Did you try going to the link supplied in the article? See if they say under distributers or something on their website.

 this frame isnt the same as the one pictured on their website, this one looks like steel to me.
  • + 2
 The one on the site is still the 2009 model, this is the newly revamped 2010 model still made out of aluminum though. The site is being changed as we speak and all the new 2010 parts should be up witin a week. For now just go check al the 2010 parts here: dart-bikes.pinkbike.com/album/2010-stuff
