It's been a while since I featured a bikecheck on the blog, so its about time to bring it back, always interesting to see what various riders use, and the modifications they make, if any! To kick this off again, no better than MK to get the party started....

Anything specific to you that you must have on your own ride: Just try to keep everything tight and solid which sometimes is difficult as I don´t mind (like?) fixing my bike very often…
Advice to beginners on bike set ups? You should not worry about having it super light. It will just build extra expectations on your progression of riding. Have both brakes on to make sure to learn basics and build your skills from there. Being brakeless in the beginning will not lead you nothing but, frustration at some point.
