What would Ross rock?

World Singlespeed Champion, World All-Mountain Champion and all-round nice guy 'Rad' Ross Schnell could be the most complete mountain biker since Johnny T.  So what does a man with mad skills and a multitude of bikes to choose from like to ride the most?

We 'spoke' to Ross and this is what he had to say.

"My quiver includes a couple of Remedys, Session DH bike, Top Fuel for XC, Fuel EX, and an XO cross bike.  But my favourite bike has to be the Remedy.  It's suitable for pretty much every ride I do, I'd even race XC on it."

And for all those who think singlespeeding is the domain of rigid hardtails, think again...

"Yeah, I chose the Top Fuel for SSWC because it's the most "XC" of all my bikes.  I set it up with a new XX Hydraulic lockout, 120mm Rock Shox Reba up front (20mm Thru-axle) for added stiffness and ample travel.  There is no way I could ride a hardtail, or anything less than 4" of travel.  Anything less is for fun-haters who like to ride slow."
