When was the last time that you saw Lluis Lacondeguy on a 26” dirt jump bike? Yeah, a long time ago. Him and his brother Andreu have always been riding all types of bikes, but he switched from MTB to BMX back in 2010 and a few years later picked up a DH bike again. He has been riding lots of downhill at his local home trails and now he has finally built up a dirt jump bike. It is good to see him back.

Check out his YT below.

“My bike is full on Hope Tech stuff. Hope is more than a sponsor for me. I love the company, the people and their stuff, it is the best. You can’t beat the sound of a Hope hub or the feeling and power of the brakes.”

“When it comes to choosing a pair of pedals, they have to be very grippy. Olly from DMR Bikes has been hooking me up since forever so I am riding the magnesiumVault’s. I really love how those pedals feel.”

“I have been riding for Sensus Grips since the Zink brothers started the company and I wouldn’t change them for nothing. For this bike I am using the gum rubber Swayze’s.”

“The seat is a pivotal from Wethepeople, slim and camo. I am not doing gnarly tailwhip/barspin videogames tricks so there is no need for me to ride with a fat seat (laughs).”

“I got these Conti tires from my brother. I like a grippy fat one in front and a fast one in the back. I may try to ride with both tires like the one in the back though. It is still a prototype tire from Continental so it will be interesting to see how it feels.”

“I prefer the BMX bike for tricks, but I just built this hardtail to have fun and flow around the trails. I have been riding lots of big bikes these last couple of years so now I feel more confident on a 26″ than on a 20″.”
