2013 Native Bikes Trendkill

This is my brother, Tim "Wolfman" Harvey's, current bike setup. I bought the frame last year and ended up giving it to him for his 30th birthday present. Made by Solid Bikes in the U.S.A.

After a 14 year hiatus, I started riding trails again in early 2014. I rode a 1999 S&M Challenger for a few months before getting a new 2013 S&M Speedwagon. However, after riding the Speedwagon for around a year, I started looking for a stronger frame that was primarily designed for dirt.

When I first came across the Native Trendkill frame, I thoroughly researching it and decided that I wanted one. Then after a few weeks went by, I found a guy who was selling his used 2013 Native Trendkill frame for a good price ($67.50 shipped). I bought it, but after it kicked around for a while, I decided to instead give it to my little brother. Tim lives in Nor Cal and used to ride for Solid Bikes, so the frame's perfect for him since Solid made the frame in Sacramento, CA at the same time he was on their Pro team.

While visiting family this afternoon, I finally got to see and ride Tim's new bike. The frame's short rear-end makes for wicked easy manuals and his parts selection is on point because the bike was surprisingly smooth. Tim's not riding too much these days (he regularly works 6-7 days a week), but the following video shows just how good he was a few years ago (https://vimeo.com/40964483). He's currently unsponsored, but has ridden professionally for MacNeil, Giant Mosh, Stranger, Solid, Loteck, Quintin, etc. over the past decade or so. Here's a rundown of my bro's new setup...

Other Comments:  One side of each pedal was sanded down for pedal grinds, I believe that Tim has a stem pad on the bike because he's jacked-up his knees one too many time, and the Honda hybrid in the background is Tim's filthy car, lol)
