Any modifications on your ride Pete?
Yes, O ring in bottom bracket, cut down drop outs on forks, moded out brake set up to keep it low profile, grinded the edge of the pegs to make them round, silicon in the bars to prevent rust and reduces cracks on the inside of the bars.
Anything specific to you that you must have on your own ride:
Tennis racket tape, 16t sprocket, Ares tires, and everything else!! haha
WE Bicycles,Moto Bicycles, S&M, Fenix, Quamen, Profile, Odyssey, Sequence, Thompson, and SF Art Apparel.
Advice for beginners with their set ups?
My advice is to get a basic set up and find out what direction you want to go. You don’t want to go out and buy and expensive bike right off because there are a lot of options for different kinds of styles.
Dom has a fresh bikecheck over on the Autum website, hit the link for all the details on his 2014 ride!
Terry’s bike is a little different from when we originally filmed this last year, but he’s still running his signature Deco frame and most of the same parts, and there’s still some solid riding clips in here… Better late than never!
(Filmed on May 29, 2013.)
This video is part of my “Better Late Than Never” series… A handful of videos I produced for Alli Sports in 2013 never went online after Alli changed the direction of their YouTube channel, so I did some quick re-edits so the videos could finally get out there.
Brazil is experiencing super hot tempertures right now, Lisias shows his set up at a scenic river location! Even with English subtitles, enjoy!
