Pix of the Custom Strength in Numbers Trek Session 9.9 Carbon


At this year’s Sea Otter Classic, the hottest MTB movie from Anthill Films (the guys that brought you “Follow Me”) was “Strength In Numbers”. At the time, there was a huge contest going on and the grand prize was a custom Trek Session 9.9 The winners of the contest are Matt Miles and Karl Heldt.

However, at that time, the prize bike was built with pre- production parts and they weren’t allowed to take it home. But for Matt and Karl, the wait is over. Production parts now replace the prototypes and the bike can be given a proper thrashing. Thanks to the guys at Shimano Cycling for providing the bike porn.

Also, stay tuned for another forthcoming contest from the Anthill Films crew, the second bike you see pictured doesn’t mean one for Karl and one for Mike. The other bike is for a future film contest, so budding MTB filmographers…stay tuned!

    I completely agree about the Project One for mountain bikes. Why should road bike customers be the only ones who can choose colours and components? Being able to customise your bike is something that is equally important to mountain bikers.
