2021 Rocky Mountain Instinct Powerplay BC Edition – Rémi Gauvin’s custom build

January 04, 2021

“I am really excited to finally have a Powerplay in my bike quiver. In the short time that I have had the bike, I have already had a ton of fun riding and using it. It has allowed me to get a few sneaky MTB rides in when the sun has been shining on days that I have been too tired to pedal fully on my own steam as I am now back into a full-time offseason training schedule. The time it takes to get to the top of the trails is staggeringly quick and the bike is no slouch on the way back down either. It has also been a blast to boot around town on! Because it is based off of the Instinct BC platform that I have ridden on hundreds of hours already it was instantly comfortable for me and I am looking forward to riding it more this winter!”
