1. KHS DH650b; prototype design;
large frame; 8. 5 inches of travel;
24-inch top tube.
“I’m running a milled-down 2012 X-Fusion DH shock with a stock headset,
which takes the stock bottom bracket
height from 14 inches to an even lower
13. 8 inches and gives me a 63-degree
head tube angle. I feel like with the bigger wheels I don’t have to run so slack
of a head tube angle. The frame is 2
inches longer than my old frame, and
I’m riding lower in the frame than I
did with my old bike. I have the bottom
bracket lower than the axles, and that
makes the bike handle even better.”
2. 2012 Manitou Dorado Pro fork,
8 inches of travel.
“I run 91 psi in the air chamber, most
of the high-speed damping cranked in,
and the low-speed four to five clicks
out, depending on how the track is.
Zac Smith, the tech for me at the 2012
Rampage, also made the seals a little
smoother-feeling by adding a secret
grease to them.”
3. 2013 X-Fusion Vector HLR
shock, 9.5-inch eye-to-eye length,
3-inch stroke with a custom shim
stack and 500-pound titanium
4. Secret tires, 2.4-inch width,
front and rear.
“Kenda is developing some new, sticky-rubber, 42-durometer Nevegal and
HoneyBadger prototype tires for my
bike. I didn’t have them yet for the
Rampage, so I was running other tires
with a 42 durometer and the names
blacked out. For tire pressure, I run 35
psi front, 45 psi rear; it also depends
on the track.”
5. Kenda Freeride inner tubes.
“I usually run a Kenda Lite tube in
front and a Kenda Freeride tube in the
back, but this day I had two
Kenda Freeride tubes in the tires.
Sometimes I run my rear tire tubeless,
with the ‘ghetto tubeless’ conversion,
but usually I just run tubes.”
9. 2013 Shimano Saint brakes
“It’s the stock setup, with 8-inch rotors
and metal pads.”
10. Gravity Light 800 handlebar,
25-millimeter rise, width is cut
down to 31 inches.

6. Stan’s Flow ZTR 650b rims.
“The wheels are built for me by David

7. DT Champion 14-gauge spokes
with brass nipples.
“The spokes were extra tight for the
Rampage to make the wheels as strong
