During the last Shadow team trip (in Phoenix) much of the team updated their bikes with some new parts. So I decided to take advantage of all the used parts lying around and built up a bike that I could use to ride flatland. What made this build mostly possible was that Paul Ryan rides a very small and responsive frame, which he happened to leave behind at the end of the trip. I cleaned the frame up a bit, and got an old freecoaster wheel from Trey, then put the bike together. Here’s how it turned out. It’s been very fun learning how to engage with flatland riding.
