Brian Tunney – Insta Smith

Some fresh Brian Tunney footage to start the week, heres what Brian had to say about his latest project:

“Growing up, one of my all-time favorite tricks was a smith decade. About ten years ago, I took my back brakes off because maintaining them was a pain in the butt and I wanted a more simplistic approach to my bike setup. But I lost that one trick. This past summer, after a few dreams of doing that trick, I learned the brakeless version but wanted to incorporate more of the past and present into my riding, so I marched to Empire BMX and reinstalled a gyro, back brakes and all of the ridiculous detachable cable guides that come with my bike. The result has been a very good re-connection of me with my 15-year-old self. These are but a few of the things I’ve filmed with back brakes, ’80s inspiration and abundant, humid sunshine in the past few months. More is on the way soon, thanks for watching.”

One thought on “Brian Tunney – Insta Smith

  1. Man, I go through that dilemma every month it seems, thinking about all the tricks and combos I lost by not running front and rear brakes. Ultimately I want to get 2 bikes set up with and without for use at my home spot.
