Build: Kris Keefer/Ride Engineering / ride-engineering.com
On this specific build, I really wanted to get a more comfortable chassis setting on the 2021 GasGas MC 450F. The GasGas is known for having smooth roll-on power, but the WP suspension leaves something to be desired. That desire? Comfort! Since Ride Engineering has been developing triple clamps as well as other chassis-specific parts, I thought I would leave it up to them to point me in the right direction. Not to mention that Ride also has full KYB conversion kits available for the steel-framed machines, meaning I could try to make this “other” red machine feel similar to a blue machine over bumps.
