MODS: Sharpied the hubs on the lathe downstairs. Grinded my rear dropouts to make it 13.65″ or so. Cut and grinded my inside sprocket guard so it’s only using the three nuts and bolts on the down side of where the sprocket is for left foot forward. Replaced the barrel adjuster nuts on the Gyro cables with the presta valve tube things they use to keep valves through the rims on ten speeds with. Cut my bars a little bit (25.5″ Wide). Shuffled some pedal pins around. I replaced the brake shoe allen heads with old school round head brake shoe nuts cause the allen head things sometimes meet my ankles.

There are still a couple things I want to do to this bike that I’ve been slacking on. I mostly just wanted to get a new bike that wasn’t as shiny as my chrome and gold bike that I was riding for a long time before I crashed this summer and had to take a couple months off. I’ve been having a lot of good times riding this bike in the last couple months… it’s sweet.

This is Matt Beringer’s latest ride. There are still some little mods he wants to do to it here and there but for the most part, this is it. We shot the bike check when we were filming in SLC earlier this month and Matt’s currently on his way to San Francisco to get some more clips. Jimmy Levan will be in attendance as well so Bay Area, watch out!
