Each bike I have ridden has been a very special experience! If bikes could talk, I'm sure they would have plenty to say about my riding.
I am also that person who gives her bikes names to give extra personality to already beautiful creations. (Built by Travis, of course..minus the Fuji.)
Meet Sir Richard the Ironhearted, the bike who started it all. He's a homely bike that is very heavy but opened up my eyes to the world of bike riding. He was my trusty steed to get me to work and home as well as the first bike I road on the Trout Run Trail.
I have a lot of bikes and some are ridden far more than others...
The bikes that I use the most often for off-road riding will be listed on below- this will include new additions to the fleet!
I am 100% extremely lucky to have a partner who values my experiences and provides me tools for which I can learn what bike works best for me and brings out my shredding potential. Travis is a great sponsor who I am fortunate to have as a riding partner and husband, too!
First Review & Second Review.
Meet Davey Jones, he's a 2018 Trek Farley 9.8 with 27.5" wheels and a lot of attitude.
He was a blast to ride last winter and this is his current review.
Elementary and is a Project One Procaliber 9.8. I find the 650b wheel size fun and playful, the geometry of the bike is fabulous, and the Isospeed decoupler is helpful for long saddle time. I'm really enjoying having this bike in my quiver.
Meet Frankie G. The Glitter Queen, my custom built Specialized S-Works Stumpjumper! It's built up to be 27.5+ but can run 29" wheels if I wanted. This was a bike I wasn't anticipating wanting or needing, but I'm sure glad I have one now. It's been fun to ride on our local trails, but the best part will be taking it on out-of-town adventures! A writeup will come soon.
