Transforming a Marin Rift Zone 27.5 Into a Slopestyle Enduro Machine
Turning a full suspension enduro bike into a park bike is nothing new. However, the build kit and effort Matt Jones went to when transforming his Marin Rift Zone 27.5 into a jibaholic, freeride machine is pretty sweet. $1,100 Cane Creek titanium eeWings cranks on a jump bike? A custom cut SRAM derailleur used as a chain tensioner? Pivotal saddle? Proper downhill tires? The list of details is long and Matt has some insightful reasons for choosing each part to make his enduro bike easier to do tricks on and toss around. The only question we have is whether or not Cam McCaul will give Matt an invitation to next year’s Slopedurocross Challenge?!
