With a change of teams comes a change of bikes from Silverback to the Spanish BH for Annie Last. For Team KMC EKOÏ SR Suntour she will be racing a BH Lynx Race, a 100mm travel XC and marathon racer.

SR Suntour is a title sponsor for Annie's team. They have supplied her with a carbon Axon fork along with an Unair shock. A single cable operated lever opens and closes the remote lockout for both components in unison.

Annie measures her effort with a Rotor 2INPower power meter crankset and propels a 32 tooth Rotor chainring. Time's lightweight ATTAC XC 12 (claimed weight 248 grams for a pair) connect Annie to the bike.

The rest of the gearing is largely a SRAM XX1 Eagle affair with a KMX X12 chain in a matching black and gold colour scheme.

Nice simple and 'clean' looking frame.

The back tyre also seems to have the hand from Adams Family attached to it :-)
