Alan is the manager at Point Area Bicycle Service in Stevens Point, WI, he really wanted to have a personal bike to showcase the 134 platform to the shop’s customers. Alan’s 134 is the perfect mix of trail and enduro for Midwest riding. “I chose the components based on a top notch suspension setup, with a mix of performance,cost and durability in mind.” Well, we think you nailed it!
Alan has definitely gone for performance, cost, and durability with his bike’s drivetrain. A SRAM GX Eagle DUB groupset is paired with a 32 tooth front chainring and a SRAM X01 Cassette.
Chain retention comes in the form of an MRP Carbon AMG V2 carbon guide.
The fork is a 140mm Pike Ultimate in custom flat black with a couple of upgrades, it’s sporting a MRP Ramp control cartridge, a 2021 Debonair Spring as well as Rock Shox Charger RC 2.1 Damper. The rubber is from Maxxis and there is a DHF 29 x. 2.5 3C Maxx Terra EXO TR up front and a Maxxis Dissector 29 x 2.4 3C Maxx Terra EXO TR out the back.
The Rockshox Super Deluxe Ultimate Rear Shock is stock and comes with the bike as a frame only along with the rear axle.
At the pointy end you’ll find TRP Quadiem G Spec brakes attached to a 25mm rise ProTaper Carbon 35mm Bar – (cut to 770mm) and a Wolftooth dropper lever. A Truvativ Descendant 40mm stem and ODI Elite Pro grips round things out in the cockpit.
The whole thing rolls on a Raceface Turbine R30 Wheelset with Vault Hubs, the rotors are heat dispersing two-piece TRP rotors. The final pieces of the puzzle are a WTB Rocket 142mm Titanium rail saddle and the 2021 Fox Transfer 150mm dropper that it sits atop of.
