My german friend Moritz Zapp hit me up one day suggesting me if I would like to do a bikecheck of his new bike, because he had it custom painted and put it together with some new parts.

I guess that it was the perfect excuse to start this new feature, where the main point is pretty simple: to feature the bikes that some people ride plus a few words about it.

Check out Moritz Zapp’s Trek Ticket DJ below.

 “I have ridden many different Dirt Jump frames but the Ticket DJ is by far the one I like the most. My Bontrager wheels are super strong, and light at the same time. The XR1 tyres are super light too, and I can’t remember a situation where I lost grip.

For my handlebars I run the Nc-17’s XLine model. It’s pretty flat, 725mm wide and stiff, just the way I want it. With the Nc-17’s S-Pro stem is the same thing: short, stiff and flat. The Sensus hooks me up with the best grips in the business. I am currently riding with Andreu’s DISISDABOSS pro model. I couldn’t really ask for more.” – Moritz Zapp


Other than that, I run the new Nc-17’s Sudpin IV S-Pro pedals which are super light. I always throw some long pins on them for some extra grip. And if we talk about the fork and tyres, they are always pumped up to the max.

Thanks to Trek, Nc-17 and The Sensus I am riding my dream bike, I couldn’t be happier. And I also want to thank Smith Optics, NiceOne and Bontrager.” – Moritz Zapp
