Brett Rheeder spent the better part of 2012 turning the heads of fellow FMB competitors with strong competitive results throughout his rookie season. Now that the 2013 FMB World Tour season has kicked off, Brett made sure the slopestyle world knew 2012 was hardly a fluke by winning his first event of the year, Vienna Air King. We caught up with Brett to check out the bike that earned him the victory in Vienna, his 2013 Trek Ticket Signature hardtail.

Brett's Trek Ticket Signature hardtail is kept clean and simple for the dirt jump-oriented FMB competitions like Vienna Air King. That means single speed set up with rear brake only, fast-rolling, low-profile tires and stiff, lowered suspension fork.

165mm Shimano Saint Cranks mount up to a Chromag chainring on Brett's setup. Shimano DX flat pedals with fairly low pin height mean his feet can shift and adjust during tricks like tailwhips and no-foot cans.

Brett's Fox 34 831 RAD is dropped to 90mm of travel and has a 15mm thru-axle for the Shimano XTR front hub.

Brett runs Bontrager Elite bars with 27.5mm of rise at a 29-inch width. Despite the width, barspins aren't a problem. He's using a prototype Bontrager stem and Shimano XTR rear brake with 140mm rotor. The cable is long enough for a couple consecutive barspins or tailwhips and is zip-tied to the bars near the stem to keep things clean. Sensus / ODI grips complete the cockpit package.

Brett's rear wheel features a Shimano Zee hub with singlespeed configuration. Bontrager Big Earl rims (front and rear) keep the fast-rolling 2.3-inch Bontrager G1 tires mounted up.

A Chromag Overture seat rounds out the build. The only modification Brett has made is a crank-stopper bolt added to the bottom bracket shell. Cam McCaul was seen using this mod last year, so it must work ok. You can learn more about that in Cam's Prototype Trek Slopestyle Bike Check.

When asked what part of his Trek Ticket is his favorite, Brett responds, "I don't have a specific favourite part. My bike put together as a complete is so sick. My most favorite part of my bike is the whole thing, haha."
