Another full custom build from the DHZ. Took the orange/red theme pretty far on this one. Keeping it real with 26" wheels and a stock 1x10! King hubs/headset, Hope brakes, a bunch of Straitline goodies and some pretty buttery Fox Racing Shox to keep the wheels on the ground. Looks as good as it rides!

About yourself: My name is Tyler Gilsdorf. I am a junior at Washington State University studying Geotechnical Engineering. I have been racing for a decade now and I have loved every moment. It has been the best learning and growing experience I could have ever asked for. Any day I am out in the woods ripping up corners and going fast is a good day! :)
