A FEW WORDS FROM GUY ABOUT HIS SETUP:
" I ride the ALVX AF frame because it has the perfect geometry for my style of riding. The 20.8" top tube is a perfect size for mixing park and street and having the short back end helps massively with a lot of tech tricks and spins. This makes the bike easier to spin around for me and handle and it has got to be the best feeling frame I've rode since starting on 20" wheels.
I also run the Leezus bars because they are my favourite height of bars and feel right setup on the ALVX. They come 28.5" wide which is what I've always cut my bars to in the past so that's a massive advantage not having to cut them down! I chose flat raw Leezus bars recently to spice it up a bit to go with the peach fade frame and its looking a treat!
I just put on BSD's newest cranks, the Substance XL V2. I ride them in 165mm as it goes with the geometry of the frame and the short back end. Having the shortest size of cranks has made a massive difference to my riding especially when doing spins out of grinds and for manuals and barspins. They give you extra clearance when running 4 pegs so I don't hit my foot off the back pegs as much. "
