Intro: Effraim. Bikecheck description/photos: James White.
If you pay attention to riders set up, you will notice James White always has some interesting bike modifications going on his ride. Many of you have been requesting James to do a bike check, the man himself got in contact and offered to show his bike check on FM! Over to Whiteski for the 411..
“So I’ve been getting a lot of requests about doing a bike check. So here it is.
To explain a little. I stopped getting support from S&M around mid 2017 as they were stopping regular production of Intrikat. I went straight into working with another company on a potential frame release. Sadly, that too was put on hold towards the end of the year. That left me with a rather tired bike and ripe for a fresh set up to kick start the new year.”
Amahl Abdul-Khaliq aka AF The Naysayer got in contact with some bike check news. Amahl is of course a flatlander, but also is known to the flatland community. With music featuring on PROPS, Diversion TV, ESPN, Dan’s Comp, and FITBIKECO edits in the past 6-7 years. Hit the link below for his bike check, and some nice photographs to boot.
