A FEW WORDS FROM ALEX ABOUT HIS SETUP:
" We had been toying with the idea of doing fluorescent yellow for a few years now and finally decided to send it and I’m glad we did as it came out really nice. Also new on this frame is the cast chainstay yoke which gives more tyre clearance for fatter tyres while slammed.
I’ve been riding the new plastic sprocket guard for a while now and really liking the way it looks. Kevlar tyres is another thing I’ve gotten right into recently and seems to make a noticeable difference making the bike lighter which I’m all about.
Last but by no means least I’ve got the new Leezus Christ bars on in flat black which looks very stealthy, how could you not want these bars going off the name alone! "
