Aluminum frames are no more pure Dirt Jump toys. Time has changed and Alu frames form probably the main part of the mountain bike scene these days. UK shredder Alex Cahill has one of them! Sweet Banshee Amp build, in raw color with purple details. You can find Alex shreds Dirt Jump or sends bangers in Corby indoor park where he practices his technic riding and enjoys good times. You should follow his social media for some bangers and fun! Alex made a description of his sweet beast so let’s check this light Banshee build! Rider – @alexcahill1

 

What is the first thing that comes to your mind when I ask you for “short description of your bike”?

I like my bike to be as short and light as possible, but still strong enough to take whatever I throw at it!

Do you have any favorite setup or bike part that you always use, for a new bike build?

I always run ODI stay strong longneck grips, they are my favorite. Super soft, grippy and Stephen Murray is the man!

Are you able to choose one part, product or its feature that really surprised you and improved your feeling of riding your bike?

I actually recently got my forks serviced by the geniuses at Plush Suspension, I always sort of thought it couldn’t make that much difference but it has transformed my bike feeling! Even at a smooth skatepark the response and feedback have helped me to progress and get better!!

Do you build your bike, let say more universal or do you focus on a one “discipline” (dirt, park or street) and build it that way?

I build it myself but do it over the watchful eye by the guys at Brink UK, they always have little secrets to help the build feel perfect! I set it up for dirt/park for sure!!
