Intro/Photos: James White.

My bike has changed a fair bit since my last freaky light ‘ Paris 1 ‘ Bike check -

It’s gradually got bigger and heavier. Obviously It’s quite fashionable to use a street style whip at the moment but for me , the look of how this sort of set up encourages you ride coincided with where I wanted to go. I got a similar feeling watching people ride big set ups to when I first saw brakeless riding… Fluid and less forceful.. like you’ve got to give the bike respect and wait for it to respond. Small light weight bikes are by there nature quick and jerky I’m a huge critic of my riding and this was something I wanted to iron out, so started messing about with bigger set ups and here I am. The White bike…

Frame: S&M Intrikat 20”tt in limited Edition White.
Forks: S&M Intrikat Prototype White.
Bars: S&M Intrikat 9” Limited Edition White.
Headset: Primo in matching Limited Edition White.
Tyres: Fit Faf 1:95 front and back. Fastest tyres I’ve come across.
Rims: Alienation brakeless rims front and back.
Front hub: DK.
Back hub: KHE the light version. I’ve cut down the axles a bit and lathed down a few parts to lighten it up a bit.
Spokes: double butted radial lace.
Crank: Éclat Onyx – I chop down the axle quite a bit. While I’m not so bothered about weight I still don’t like carrying around unnecessary heavy metal.
Chain: Cult, silver.
Chain wheel: AMNL Sprocky Balboa.
Grips: Fit, faith Grips. I’m on about my forth pair of these. Love how they feel, tuff where you grab and nice and soft on the rest of my delicate hands.
Bar ends: Odyssey par ends. I love these bar ends, for plastic bar ends they last and work so well.
Stem: Shadow.
Pegs: Ares with Odyssey par ends. (I love the Ares pegs, but being plastic the ends wear down pretty quick so I ‘ve got a little mod going on using odyssey bar ends) Got some griptape going as well at the moment as riding in the wet a fair amount of time.
Seat: Currently using a Pivotal Fit. I’ve ground out all the undercarriage so it nice to grab.
