Bike Check: Dylan Dunkerton’s Coastal Camo Specialized Demo

Dylan-Dunkerton-Coastal-Crew-Demo-(10)If you look really closely at the image above, you might spot a bike. The hints of red will eventually give it away. Want to see more of the camouflaged beauty? Head past the break to try and catch a glimpse…..


This particular bike borrowed it’s “bark” from the Cedar tree it’s leaning against.

This custom Specialized Demo belongs to Dylan Dunkerton, a member of the Coastal Crew. Never heard of them? You’re missing out on some of the best mountain bike videos in the industry. Their segment in Kranked Revolve was the highlight of the film! Since their breakout segment they have gone from a low key group of shredders and trail builders, to opening the first year round gravity park in BC.

Great during turkey season, but during deer season it’s totally useless.
