2020 Bike Build – Matt Simmonds – Privateer 161

The team at Privateer kindly offered to get my bike ready for this year’s race season. However, given the current climate, I’ve had to ‘make do’ with local Welsh trails.

With support from all my sponsors, including Shimano, Hunt Bike wheels, J-tech, Mudhugger, Pro Components, and Kenda tires it made for an awesome build

Full XTR groupset 10-51 cassette with 32T chainring, With 26-28PSI in the rear tyre and no tyre inserts to be found front or rear. Pedal tension set up in a pretty neutral position of 6 clicks from max.Front tyre pressures vary from 24-26PSI on his Kenda Hellkat and a Mudhugger Shorty X to keep the mud off the money maker.

“Since the start of lockdown I’ve been riding the 161 and can honestly say it’s been a highlight of many a day.
Its steep seat angle makes tackling the climbs so much faster and it smashes the gnarliest descents. The 161 does it all and I’m really looking forward to taking it further afield and finding it’s boundaries, if it has any!”
