I worked at Ibis for 7 years, from late 2008 until early 2015. I started in the warehouse, and my first big task was to help with the move from the old Scotts Valley location to Ibis’ current warehouse on the west side of Santa Cruz. Shortly after the move I was promoted to inside sales, where I managed 50% of all Ibis sales. I will forever be very thankful to the owners of Ibis for giving me a chance to prove myself, especially during the economic recession of 2008! And I am still honored to be a sponsored athlete to this day!
Hydration is important, but another big reason why I wear a pack so often is the additional protection these packs provide against injury. Hydration packs have come a LONG ways, and I love the current line of CamelBak packs!
Kitsbow believed in my ability to ride in front of a camera, and they helped get my video career rolling back in 2014. Huge thanks to Kitsbow, and to Elliot Wilkinson-Ray for believing in my video stunts! If you are considering some Kitsbow gear, drop me an email.
Kali was an early supporter of mine as well, and I began using their gear in 2014. The company was still quite young at the time, but I believed in their gear. After several big crashes, I know first hand that the protection is very effective!
I met one of the owners of PNW Components over a decade ago at a NORBA event, and he and I have been in similar circles ever since. PNW offers some really great product at some VERY competitive prices, and I am stoked to be running their droppers and cockpits!

I managed international sales at WTB from 2015 through 2017, and I learned a massive amount at this growing California company. The whole WTB team is amazing, and gave me a wonderful opportunity. I have used WTB products ever since I bought my Bontrager Privateer Comp back in 1997!
Orange Seal, available at Jenson USA.
A friend turned me onto Orange Seal, and the stuff works great- particularly with WTB tires and Ibis rims!
Shimano, available at Jenson USA.
My favorite grouppo from Shimano is the M8000 series, aka XT 11 speed. Smooth, reliable, light, and a very fair price. Shimano has been an amazing supporter for several years now, big thanks to the Japanese component manufacturer!
Fox Racing Shox, available at Jenson USA.
Fox has been a great, long time supporter. The Grip2 damper works amazing, and I’m still very happy with the RC2 dampers as well.
