What's your favourite bike and why?
My Reign Advanced 27.5 with DVO suspension is so fast and plush, but I am now torn to decide between it and my much lighter Trance-X Advanced which pedals and climbs quicker and is a contender for just as fast downhill. Good thing for N+1.
What's your favourite place to ride and why?
A mountain bike trip to Alassio on the western coast of Liguria, Northern Italy where every ride with great friends ended with a double gelato and a swim in the crystal clear sea!
What's your must-have cycling accessory and why?
My Gore waterproof shorts. On the road, path or trail, they keep me dry!
What's your favourite bike discipline and why?
I like riding anywhere with friends - mountain, bike-touring globally, commuting, gravel, trail, they're all great! Being able to maintain them all in my basement is pretty awesome independence too.
NSMBA TAP Trail Builder, homebrewer, skier and dreamer of windsurfing in Hood River, OR.
Keep my 40-year-old VW Westphalia camper van running well enough for road trips! And having the skills to get him started again in the dark on the side of the Coquihalla highway or a Kamloops FSR!
Biggest cycling achievement
Pedalling with my wife from Auckland to Rotorua, fully loaded with camping gear - tent, sleeping bags, therma-rests etc... On my Reign and her Hail! No races were won.
