Chase Skidmore's Bio

I'm a Utah native. Mountain biking, climbing, and traveling are three of my passions that consume most of my time. Split boarding is becoming my winter obsession.

The Stan's Arch Mk3 are a solid, decently light rim that is a great choice for durability and lightness on a budget. They are superb in the corners and set up tubeless tires in seconds. With the responsiveness of the rim, it's easy to tell how far you can push the tires before you start to break your traction. The Neo hubs engage superbly, which is a huge step above any standard hub which was one of the reasons why i demolished my previous rear wheel's hub. Highly recommend if you're a heavier rider who hammers on descents, but still wants to have a dream of being a weight weeny.

Whether its Centerlock hubs or my cassette I can't say enough about the fact that I am glad I'm not leaving home without a small but sometimes essential tool. This tool is designed for touring cyclists who break a spoke behind the cassette. I figure if there's a chance my cassette can go loose (and it has happened) it'll be great to have this tiny, lightweight way of tightening it up.

Versatile and Fun
5 5

I built this bike up with parts I had accumulated through various other bike builds as a spare. It's quickly becoming my go to rig because it's just so much fun. Updated geometry and the versatility to change wheel sizes, fork travel, and number of gears makes this hardtail a clear winner. I set mine up as a 29er, with a 130mm fork and the bike rides well basically everywhere.

I've owned a number of Santa Cruz frames, and the quality here is nothing less than what I would expect from SC. i expect to have this bike for years and miles to come (which is saying a lot for me, as I usually swap bikes out yearly). And if I get bored with it, I can just convert it to an SS, or maybe even a 27.5 plus bike.
