“A few days ago I had the chance to put a new ride together for 2015. The thing I am most excited about is to be one of the test rider for Quest BMX Battle frame. It’s super responsive, lightweight and full of Flatland specifics like front wheel clearance a 19 inch top tube and a short backend. I will tell you more about that frame during the test phase.

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

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.
