It's going to be hard to miss Reece Wallace on the trails this year. We've already seen his search and rescue themed Giant Reign
in March but now he's back just a couple of months later with a custom downhill bike too.
Reece says he's had black or subtle bikes for most of his life so he wanted to go "all out" with the theme on his new Glory. He said, "I'm a child of the 90s, and wanted a bike to reflect the ridiculous colours that were prevalent at the time... It's fun having a bike that looks like a cyclone popsicle."
Reece runs his medium frame pretty much stock apart from custom shimmed suspension that makes it extra stiff and more progressive. Reece says the bike suits his needs out of the box so he didn't feel the need to make a bunch of other modifications. Let's take a closer look at his custom bike that was painted by Fresh Paints of Whistler.
The bike is totally custom painted from tip to tail.
Reece's DVO suspension is custom shimmed and he runs the shock with a 525-650lb progressive spring. He says it, "makes for great small bump off the top, but ramps quickly for hard landings and steep lips. The best-case scenario for jumping a DH bike."
Reece's contact points come from Chromag including a 760mm bar, a graphic saddle and Kris Kovarik's signature Dagga pedals.
