Never affected by the trendiest setups in BMX, Adam’s bike are always the epitome of freestyle. From FUNt brakes to a fistful of post, here’s his latest bike check from Eastern Bikes.
Dave King is a trail connoisseur and we’re psyched to be flowing him some parts. Hit up QBMX for the full bike check!
Ride BMX caught up with Adam Banton during our Palm Springs trip and got the full scoop on Adam’s current bike. Click on the photo to see more close-ups, a Q&A and a solid view of the shirt he’s wearing.
Tom Perry’s bike is all chrome these days and he hooked us up with some pics to check out the shine.

We have a full edit of our San Diego dudes coming up later this week but in the mean time, here’s a bike check we shot with Kyle Hart during our trip. Thanks to the MarchFourth Marching Band for letting us shoot on their bus!
I watched Anthem 2 last night and was blown away with Aitken’s part (and the whole video for that matter). It’s unreal how much style and power than man has. Literally not a minute or two after, a text from him comes in completing the parts list for the bike check you see above.
Anyway, he’s been making some progress in his road to recovery and though he’s not back to 100% yet, he was firing out some style over the dubs in Beringer’s yard when we hung out with him last month! He even clocked some clips for an edit we have in the works.
He likes his bikes long and low with a little harder gearing (28/9) right off the bat. Here’s his most current bike, which happens to match our latest semi-matte teal color kit.
Follow him on Twitter.com/nightwolfSLC.
The first bike up on the list is Aaron Ross’ Orange! Safety Orange is the new colorway we have lined up. The only part we have available right now for sale is the Aaron Ross Grip but you can expect everything else to come trickling in later this year.
One other thing that’s new in this bike check is Aaron Ross’ signature tire! It keeps the keyboard theme of all his other signature parts and the thread pattern are inverted keys which spell out some fun messages from Aaron Ross and a handful from the contest we held last year (we’ll be announcing the winners soon (credit karen here)).
