This summer I have been working at Retallack Lodge, helping build B.C.'s first commercial back country mountain bike destination. Retallack is located near Nelson B.C. a town home to infamous trails, freeride stunts, riders, trail builders, hippies and wizards. We started on the building program in July and already Retallack boasts a 2000ft dh trail, and interpretative xc trail, Retallack Cedars, as well as a multitude of high alpine singletrack, and several of Riley Mcintosh's signature trail feature, the wooden roller coaster. I cant wait to let you guys know what we have built next year, until then check out this photo story from Garret Grove when he came to visit this summer.

Season three is here, with new episodes every two weeks!
For most of September, I found myself in a constant routine: load up my bike/gear at night, go to school in the morning, grab a burrito, and head straight over to Post Office for a little sundown sesh. Sometimes a bunch of people would be out there, other times it was just me. It never really mattered too much though, as any ride turned a stressful school day into a good day. I brought the camera out one day, and self filmed for this edit.

3 Riders, 1 van.
Road tripping down from Bristol, England.
Camping in some pretty exotic places. Lakes and tennis clubs have proven to be the way forward.

Have a look at this info sheet for a quick run through the main changes.
Most of the geometry remains the same, with the 16.9" chainstays for a fun lively feel, and low BB for superior cornering control. The head angle has been made slightly slacker for better high speed stability and confidence on steep descents, and combined with a new tapered head tube for greater fork compatibility.
Increased tire clearance at the chainstay is achieved by a new 1 piece forging which increased tire clearance at this location, improves lateral frame stiffness, and also allows for greater vertical compliance for vibration absorption when combined with the shock stop chainstay.
The high direct mount front derailleur improves derailleur tire clearance. The ISCG 05 mounts allow you to run any chainguide combo you wish. The 30.9mm seat post is compatible with all popular adjustable seat posts, and there are cable guides under the top tube for a seat post remote lever.
The new tapered head tube has a 1 1/8" zero stack top interface (44.0mm) and 1.5" traditional bottom interface (49.6mm) to make the frame compatible with all straight and tapered fork steerers. The zero stack top cup also allows the rider to lower the handle bar height further if desired regardless of what fork steerer is being used.
The Paradox V2 is a no nonsense 29er hardtail that is designed to put a massive grin on your face. If you don't believe me, then try and get a test ride to see just what this frame is capable of!
