So we had Mark in the shop on wednesday, came to chat with the gringo and get some sweet ti. spokes installed into his wheels - thought you guys might like to know what he's running.
His bike is pretty tricked out with customised parts and some very inovative ideas, all manufactured by Mark himself - Here's his parts list
Frame - WTP Electro (temp)
Forks - Odyssey Race
Bars - Proper Proclaimer
Stem - Coalition
Grips - A Bikes Edwin
Front wheel - Green Proper Magnalites, Drilled right through
Tyres - KHE Premium Street, Mac1.5 on the rear and mac2 up front
Pegs - Green Tree Pegs
Seat - Macneil Pivotal SL with wedge mod
Cranks - Primo Hollowbites
Pedals - Welgo Magnesium
Sprocket - Macneil Primary Sprocket
Chain - KHE Collapse
Brake - Fly Bikes, Snafu Mobeus Gyro, Odyssey small lever
And here's some of his modifications -
Don't you just hate having bottom bracket bearings floating around your frame? Drill a hole or two in the bottom of your frame and worry no more. also note the grip flange between the sprocket and bottom bracket shell, this allows Mark run stiff cranks without over-tightening the bearings or having silly tension on the chain - perfect for whips.
Neat lil hubguard, made from a cut down fly peg. Which all adds up to a light but still darn strong bike. It's almost as tough as Mark!
Like what you see? All parts available in our online shop ;) Except that Primary Sprocket, that's mine...
