Staff Bike Checks | Mike's Mullet Devinci Spartan

From The Lost Co alleyway, owner Mike Randol gets down and dirty with his current build!

The Build

Mike Rides a size Medium, full carbon Devinci Spartan 27.5 as his component testing platform and main sled. He's currently running the bike in a mullet configuration (29in front and 27.5in rear) for maximum rollover speed while still maintaining a fun, flicky feel in the rear end. Purpose built for tackling some Bellingham's steepest terrain, this bike sure is totally dialed!

Mike uses this bike as his platform for testing components for the YouTube Chanel so the components you'll see him riding out on the trail change up frequently, but he's currently running the bike decked out in top-of-the-line Fox Factory Suspension and other componentry from the likes of Sram, Spank, Works, and Maxxis among others!

The fresh coat of loam is a pretty good indicator of the type of terrain this bike is most at home in!

Fox Suspension keeps the ride nice and smooth on even the roughest of root sections!
