Cody approaches his role as Volagi’s accounting, inventory, and shipping specialist with an unwavering attention to detail and reliability that’s indispensable to our daily operations. A closer look at his ride of choice reveals a bike that mirrors his work ethic and personality in every respect.

His riding style combines a fluid motion and fearless abandonment that’ll get you nervous watching but makes it impossible to look away. With roots running deep in the mountain bike culture of Northern California, Cody cut his teeth on the trails of Mount Tamalpais establishing himself as a top rider in local circles. His approach to riding demands a bike that not only handles the rigors of the trail, but also the brute force he dishes out while linking turns and bombing descents. Here’s a look at Cody’s one-of-a-kind “Lucky Buddha” Volagi Viaje:

  • Surly Knard 700×41 tires
  • Medley of Shimano 105 and Sram rival drivetrain parts with an X9 mountain bike rear derailleur
  • Sram 11-32 cassette
  • Salsa (“more”) Cowbell 2 handlebar, flared outward for a wider cockpit in the drops
  • “Lucky Buddha” bottle cap steer tube topper for good vibes and a little extra flair
  • Cygolite Mitycross handlebar mounted headlight
  • Volagi e7 Sync Saddle w/ Chromoly rails in one-off brown color scheme
  • Prototype straight blade Volagi carbon fork
