2014 Bike Check: Peter Comstock9 septembre
Peter is our newest addition in the LamaCycles crew. We gotta hold of him recently between contests to check his dialled NS Decade build! He's been filming a bunch since spring time accumulating plenty of bangers that are gonna end up in a sweet web edit by the end of the season. He's still got more stuff to film so stay tuned!

2014 BIKE CHECK
Why do you ride that particular frame?
I ride the Decade because I like the feel of an aluminum frame and it’s perfect for slopestyle, dirt jumps and park.
Your impressions on your new ride?
Amazing, it’s the best bike i’ve ever had and i’m stoked to be sending on it!
Concerned about your bike weight? You know how much it weighs?

We all know Canada doesn’t see the best weather in the winter... How do you pass the winter months? Where do you get most of your sessions in?
I spent all winter restrengthening a sprained ankle/foot that happened last year at Silver Style. It was the longest recovery over any broken bone i’ve had but after a great deal of exercises it’s now stronger than ever.
What are your plans for the rest of the summer? Any trips you’re trying to make happen?
I’ve been out at our jumps with Reilly Horan and JP Maffret ever since the snow melted and we were able to start digging again. We’ve been putting in a lot of work to get our trails running and doing some massive upgrades so keep an eye out!
