Bikecheck: Alexandre Paradis' Partymaster

Bikecheck: Alexandre Paradis' Partymaster

If you’ve been following our crew long enough, there is no doubt that you remember Parapa from a whole lot of our Unexpected Thursday videos. In the last couple years, he took some time off the freestyle bike but his skills never left him. In fact, he’s the type of dude that will borrow some random bike on the way out the bar just to see if he still got them bunnyhop tailwhips on lock, and land it first try. As of last year, he’s been slowly riding the freestyle bike more and he decided to kick off 2019 with a brand new Partymaster. Words can’t express how stoked we are to see him shredding with the crew again, and we can’t wait to see how he puts his new whip to use! Peep all the details about his new setup below along with some words from the Jackhammer himself.

“For the last couple of years now, I’ve been riding mostly my downhill bike. I’ve kind of lost confidence in my riding since I wasn’t really riding that much and had a couple injuries in a short amount of time. I had the idea of building a partymaster since it came out and after riding it for the last three months, the only thing I regret is not getting it sooner. Confidence came back quickly and I even started trying new tricks. The bike simply feels perfect whether I’m riding park or dirt jumps. I’m so stoked on this build and can’t wait to shred more sessions with the boys!”

Bikecheck: Jeremy Menduni's Partymaster

Bikecheck: Jeremy Menduni's Partymaster

New Year means New Bike for Jeremy Menduni! He somehow managed to get an even cleaner Partymaster than his previous one and he now runs a Prototype Rigid Fork from Altruiste! Wait no longer and see what he has to say about his new build, then check out a full bikecheck below!

"My bike last year was the cleanest build I'd had to date which meant that it would be really hard to top it this year but somehow I think I did it! One of the hardest things was finding the right colour. After switching between a few different samples, I finally decided on this colour and I'm blown away how well it turned out. I'm running a BMX spaced Partymaster combined with my new signature Altruiste Six One Three fork and I decided to run a sprocket guard to hopefully learn some new grinds and not have to worry about my drivetrain too much. My new Ruff Bike Co Can Rims with Resist Nomad tires makes my bike look even more street and thats all that matters right?! haha! All kidding aside, after a solid weekend of riding my new bike at Joyride 150, I'm beyond stoked on how dialled this thing turned out and it's gotten me so excited for the outdoor sessions and good times with the homies. Huge thanks to The Rise, Altruiste Bikes, Resist, Ruff Bike Co and all the guys at Joe Mamma Cycles in Ottawa for helping me put this thing together. Truly feeling blessed!"

Bikecheck: Xavier "Chabz" Cloutier's Partymaster

Bikecheck: Xavier "Chabz" Cloutier's Partymaster

Today, we`re stoked to bring you the Bikecheck of a true MTB Street pioneer; Xavier "Chabz" Cloutier. His name might not ring a bell to the younger generation, but Chabz is one of the OGs we started riding street with back in 2005. He took some time off the Freestyle scene for a while because of studies, injuries and also to focus on his own Handmade Frames Company; Cycles Narval. Despite not riding his Street bike much during the past few years, Chabz stayed heavily involved in Montreal's Cycling scene by building handmade steel frames and organizing various Fixed Gear races and events. He recently built up a new Partymaster and the thing is looking damn fresh! Keep on reading for all the specs and more pictures of his build!

I'm so thankful to have my main outlet back again and I couldn't be happier with my ride. It's just the way I want it but somehow better... It's the bike I wish I had my whole life! " -Matt Macduff

Bikecheck: Louis Lhomel's Partymaster

When he's not hiding behind the camera to make the magic happen, Louis Lhomel can be found screaming his ass off and riding bikes. He recently built up a new The Rise Partymaster and his whip is fresh as fuck! Partymaster frame all decked out with NS parts and a one of a kind Fox fork, be assured that it rides just as good as it looks! Louis was involved in the whole conception process behind the Partymaster so it's dope to finally see how he built his own. Check out what Louis has to say about his new bike, and peep a full specs list with some dope pictures below!

This is the nicest built I've ever rode. We've put so much effort in the conception of this frame and I can honestly say that it rides like a dream. This bike is giving me confidence in myself and in my riding. The Rock n' Roll look and the clean lines make it the ultimate machine to rip everything in my way. I ditched the rigid fork for this build since I had the opportunity to have Matt's special build fox fork. The 44mm headtube is perfect since I can switch from rigid fork to tapered in no time. The bike feels so strong now and it just makes me want to go big! All in all, it's the sweetest, gnarliest, most versatile bike I've ever encountered! So stoked! -Louis Lhomel

Simon Leclerc Partymaster MTB Dirt Jumper

Bikecheck: Simon Leclerc's Partymaster

If you're not too familiar with Simon Leclerc, you might wanna check out some of our Older Videos to refresh your mind. Simon is the homie since day one, but he disappeared from the spotlight as he took a 3 year break from riding to focus on other projects like his career and his other passion; Rally Racing. He recently decided to get back in the game and built himself a new Partymaster to shred with the boys as you might have seen in our Weekend Warriors and HTC Session videos. Don't ask me how that's even possible, but Simon didn't lose any of his abilities to kill it on the bike, in fact it almost seems like he got better during his time off! Enough with the chit chat, check out a quick video of Simon riding above and scroll down for a full Bikecheck!
