Perry Hall's Bio

I come from a long line of non-cyclists, and found peace in getting out of the house on two wheels as early as I can remember. I didn't begin to really ride mountain bikes until high school and from there, it was a downhill(ha!) spiral. Racing in college for the UVM mountain team, living with all mountain bikers, and riding all around New England got me fully hooked. I moved to Utah in 2009 to work at Alta and ski, then made the permanent move back specifically for the snow. Needless to say, I was beyond overwhelmed by the amount of amazing riding the Wasatch and Utah have, and absolutely love having such stellar trails a short drive away.


My Top 5 trails I have ridden:
1. Whole Enchilada, Moab, UT
2. Horsetheif Bench/Marys, Fruita, CO
3. Perry Hill, Waterbury, VT (RASTA MAN)
4. Mobb Hill/Saxon Hill, Jericho/Essex, VT (Tie)
5. Sugarbush/Highland MT, Warren, VT/Tilton, NH (Tie)

Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

I gave these to my girlfriend as she is learning how to ride clipless pedals and needed some knee pads. We went with these since they are a light weight, have no Velcro, and are super comfy to pedal in! they are a soft pad, that really conform to your knee, but its clear that they harden substantially upon impact. We're very happy with these pads!

Familiarity: I've used it several times

I bought this same tire in the 2.3 standard version at the beginning of the season. I'm running a 26mm internal rim Mercury X1 carbon, and felt as though the tire was a bit squirly leaning into looser corners. I bought the WT version for increased volume, and improved tire profile, and have been very impressed. I rode one trail where I distinctly noticed the tire squirm in a corner, and it handled marvelously. After a long weekend riding in southern Utah, I'm hooked on the WT DHR II!

I'm personally on my 2nd set of knees, I own a set of these, and juts bought a set for my girlfriend. Light protection for your elbows for under a long sleeve jersey while riding DH, or great for more aggressive trail riding where a little extra protection is wanted. Light weight, can be easily stowed in a pack for the climb up.

This tire is what I have been waiting for for a while now. I was running a Ikon last year, and loved the slide that tire provided. This has similar characteristics, but as soon as you lean it into the side knobs, this thing grips! I've had great luck with it so far the past month riding in Utah, the only issue is steep, loose over hard climbs where I tend to lose traction. I am excited to get this thing out on the Park City Trails this summer!

Although its pretty meek for a bell, it mounts nearly anywhere and mounts out of the way. Upside down, on the left, under the dropper lever. Easy to use without altering bar grip. Bell's are mandatory out here and this is a great option.

A new chain is a necessity, especially after nearly snapping the one you have on a bent link. I went with this option to save some cash, and I have no doubts that it will last close to the 1000 mile mark.

I have been going through the ringer trying to find a cage to fit my 2016 Santa Cruz Bronson, because I really don't like riding with a pack. This cage finally fits perfectly. Its tight around the bottle, so I know my bottles won't get thrown, and allows for angled removal and replacement of the bottle, without stressing the plastic on some other cages. Works like a charm!

I had been riding in an older Lazer on the road bike for a few years, and was having a hard time giving it up. I ended up getting one of these (MIPS was a big selling point) and haven't been happier. Besides having new padding that has reduced sweat in my eyes and made my head more comfy, the helmet also has a great hi-viz color and style to protect me while riding in higher traffic areas.
I have yet to ride it without a buff or cap underneath due to the season, but I have no reservations about the ventilation.

A great value!

The 35mm Clamp bars increase your front end stiffness quite a bit! I'll be dropping a few PSI in the fork to make the front end a bit more forgiving because these bars are so stiff! 800mm width is super stable, and lots of color options to match your ride.

I was looking for a new saddle for my MTB this year, and after riding a Tundra last season, WTB's the year before, and an Fizik Antares on my road bike, I knew i liked a fairly flat shape, but wanted to add a channel for pressure relief. This saddle hits the nail on the head. I've only got 2 rides in so far but am very pleased so far.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

The Cinch system really allows for one crank set to be used between different bottom bracket standards. For your threaded frames, this is the one you need. Quick and easy installation, bearings are quite tight and stiff out of the box, and will require a little break in. A great system.

I took this down to Fruita for a weekend of mountain biking, and had some pretty good results with it. They have added a software update to allow the camera to film inverted, which is awesome! The only downside to that, is you need to make sure to select that option on the camera every time you turn it off. If the camera times out, you do need to re-set it to inverted. I did a run at the lunch loops and a run on PBR at 18 road and did the shake to edit feature. This works really well, however since it mostly tracks speed, it also highlights any time you slow quite quickly, leading to some sub-par footage. The upside is its quick and easy to remove those clips and add better ones in to your video. Quick, easy, and the ability to view and adjust camera through your phone and change some settings is great. Size is a bit bulky compared to others, but under the handlebars it is hardly noticeable.
EDIT: Video only uploaded in a max of 240, not sure why that happened, but it was not intuitive to make sure it published in a higher quality.
