Yeti / Fox Devo

I always knew bikes were my thing, even though, I had my mind in a bunch of different sports like moto, BMX, and skateboarding I knew that I loved riding and racing bikes far more than the others. I raced both Moto and BMX when I was younger, which I think shaped my style. In the past, I've mainly focused on the gravity side of things, only recently finding myself enjoying getting fit and pushing myself fitness-wise. There really isn't much else to me. When I think of fun, I think of two wheels.

The biggest risk I have taken
Back in my dirtjump days, I was super scared to flip a trick jump at post office, and it took me about 2 weeks to finally build up enough courage to huck it. I remember the feeling of it being risky but looking back on it now it seems simple!
Something I always bring out on a ride
My helmet
Wildest encounter out on trail was
A group of monks just out for a walk, pretty far away from any town. I greeted them but they didn't say anything! Haha

Warren’s Kit

Kit Details

My bike setup is fairly simple. I run a size large SB150 frame, with a 50mm Renthal stem to keep my reach short. I run narrow bars at 760mm so I can weave through trees and turn comfortably. I like new grips cause it just feels like a new bike with freshies. I run my suspension with low speed open and high speed halfway closed. I like running dual Cushcore, but it depends on the tracks. I run an assegai up front with a minion in the rear. I don't usually change much so I am always comfortable on the bike.   

  • Freshie grips 
  • Dual Cushcore
  • 760-780mm bars
  • 50mm stem
