Yeti SB bike of choice and why…
Aboard SB150 as I have found it’s been the best balance of being a slack/stable steed but still very nimble in the tight woods.
My favorite vintage Yeti racer is...
John Tomac
The biggest risk I have taken...
Probably putting my life on hold (college and being a electrician) to pursue a career in cycling.
Something I always bring out on a ride...
All the sugar treats I wouldn’t allow to have otherwise.
Wildest encounter out on trail was...
My friend was following me dirt jumping and breaking his leg so bad they amputated it. #dontturnleft
Choose the label(s) that best describe you…
Caffeinated
Fact about me that surprises people...
I’m pretty much an old man who’s been through hip surgery already.

Roasting Coffee, Drinking Coffee, and Playing Guitar.

Kit Details

Coming from living in a van and always have a clap wagon for a bicycle, getting on the Yeti factory race team and always having a silent race bike has been an absolute game-changer. It is something I will never take for granted and cannot thank Shaun Hughes and Mark Hild for keeping our bike pretty much brand new throughout the year. I am 5’ 10” tall and fit perfectly on a Medium, I do come from a BMX background and enjoy a bit smaller cockpit.

  1.  Bar Width (750mm)
  2.  Crank Length (170mm)
  3.  Stem (40mm) 
  4.  Maxxis Assegai up front, DHF in the rear pretty much all year.
