All-time riding legend, Hans Rey, let us take a look at his 2016 GT Force X Pro Carbon bike at his home in Laguna Beach, CA. Dig into the FOX, Shimano and Crank Brothers-equipped beauty.

Setup notes
Hans runs brakes run moto style (rear brake on left) and he makes sure to run his brake levers as inside as possible, so his finger is using the outside of the lever as much as possible to get the most leverage. Hans uses CTD modes of the rear shock fairly often. If the ride gets aggressive, he'll leave it in Trail mode rather than Descend.
