Kyle Jameson has been mixing things up a bit lately.  While he’s been on Scott for close to a decade now, he recently started riding for FOX, who’s right up the road from him in the Santa Cruz area.  He’s been on Chromag for some time now as well, but recently started running Hope brakes, wheels and cranks.  Here’s a run down on one of his weapons of choice, fresh with 2017 FOX suspension.

Kyle’s custom painted Gambler. This one has 26″ wheels. He has another Gambler with 27.5″ wheels as well.

Kyle recently jumped aboard FOX, a company that’s local to him. For 2017, their new mid priced 40 has black stanchions. Kyle of course took the guts from the flagship fork and dropped them into this one. DROOL.

Plenty of clearance…

Hope/SRAM drivetrain mix.

Hope Pro 4 hubs sound lovely.

Hope all around. Kyle has been really stoked on their wheels lately, and mentioned that they’re one of very few manufacturers still making 26″ rims.

Hope V4 brakes front and rear. The machine work on the caliper is incredible.

Kyle also rides for Chromag. BZA bar/stem combo with a super wide clamp stance.

IMC_0332

Black anodized dials. So factory 😉

IMC_0335

Hope Tech 3 levers and Andreu Lacondeguy’s signature Disisdaboss Sensus grips.

Kyle is running the Float X2. Air shocks give you lots of pop on the lips and plenty of resistance to bottoming. He’s starting around 200 PSI with quite a bit of volume reducers.

Custom paint. Scott has been killing it with their custom paint program for the gravity guys.

It’s super easy to press these little buttons and adjust for varying altitudes with the FOX 40.

Chromag Scarabs are Kyle’s favorite place to rest his feet.

Basking in the California sun…
