Staff Bike Checks | Mike's Custom Painted Deity Cryptkeeper

Nothing quite like taking a look at a super clean, purpose built Dirt Jumper to start off your Monday.

The Build

Minimal, simple, and headache free is the name of the game when it comes to a good dirt jumper. Mike's custom painted Deity Cryptkeeper has this in spades while being quite the head-turner due to its crazy custom powder coat paint job, red fork, and tan-wall tires.

This simple build features Marzocchi Suspension, a sweet single speed wheelset from Spank, and some super clean finishings from Chromag. The goal of this build was a dirtjumper spec'd with reliable parts, headache free parts that will run without a fuss for years!

The textured grey frame is complimented perfectly by the splash of color from Marzocchi's new Z1 DJ.

The new Z1 DJ features the same Grip Damper found on other Z1's but is shrunk down into a shorter travel 26in package.

The Longnecks and 2-Piece WeThePeople cranks reflect Mike's roots in BMX.

Chromag Cockpits are among the best looking out there and this FU40 iteration is no exception!

Chromag finishings all over the place.
