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!

The Rise Weekend Warriors Roadtrip

The Rise Weekend Warriors Roadtrip

Few weeks ago, we hopped in the cars and left for the weekend with one goal in mind: ride some new concrete skateparks. Since Ontario has plenty of parks to choose from, we picked a route with a few good ones and hit the road. Michel Plonka, Samuel Croteau, Simon Leclerc and Marshall left Montreal to meet up with Ontarian homies Jeremy Menduni, Nick Clarke, Bailey Peckford and Roland Timleck. The crew stopped in Bancroft, Huntsville, Bracebridge, Nick Clarke's Backyard and Uxbridge along with a few bridge jumps on the way. Check out the video above and photogallery below. Thanks to everyone for making this adventure a blast, and see you next time!
