On a side note…Brad finally got his Butcher together last night so we’ll be out shooting some photos soon. Keep an eye out!
I’ve been heading out late at night a lot lately…just cruising the city and listening to some tunes. Took the camera along tonight to mess with it and get some product shots. Snapped this too.
I’ve got a new Leader Reaper fork up front, some fresh grips, new Eighthinch pedals and…uhhh pegs for the time being…so ill take some whole bike shots here soon! Im loving the fork and pedals and learning some new stuff with the pegs. By far my favorite build yet!
Here a bit from the man himself. Matt Lingo got with Tyler Johnson to talk about his signature Leader frame and let everyone know what its all about. I saw these at interbike and they look real purdy. Way into the imagery and color choices for the video too. Looks clean and professional. Reminds me of a saturday morning for some reason. Haha. Oh and nose bonk wheelie 180?! Yeah its just in there.
Theres been a lot of buzz about these on the internets and now theres a pretty good look at one courtesy of Chari & Co. I like the look and design of this but im not too sure on the description given calling this a “street track frame.” Ive seen it going around as a trick frame so hopefully it truly is meant for trick or all types of riding to avoid warranty issues seen with other companies.
Don’t have the camera on me right now but I got around to cutting my steerer tube today…so here’s what my Eighthinch Butcher looks like right now. I’ll get some high quality shots tomorrow…hopefully in better light. Ha.
