Gravity Mountain Biking Nerds – Downhill, Freeride, Trail and Dirt Jumping

Commencal Absolut 4X Bike Check

Posted by thefixbikes on April 8, 2009

Chris Shewmake is the youngest member of the SolVista Bike Park gravity team. Age really isn’t relevant, but it’s nice to have a member of the squad wearing tight pants and crazy, hyper-printed sweatshirts with fur-lined hoods…keeps things diverse, ya know?

Chris got his 2009 Commencal Absolut 4X bike put together so we snipered it at the Gunbarrel trails in Boulder a couple weeks ago. Now, you get to listen to the details and check out the pics.
