Simon O’Brien is unfortunately not a name we here often enough. Perhaps maybe thats a good thing. What is for certain, is that Simon is one of the best riders of all time! The man has a trick bag bigger than anyone I have ever seen face to face. He recently was invited to the 2012 Red Bull Circle of Balance in Japan! Whilst he was over in the land of rising sun recently I caught up with him for a lil’ bikecheck!

I like the look of radial spokes, double front brakes are fun, colony cranks are awesome, I like the mid set dropouts on the forks.

Advice to beginners on bike set ups?
experiment with certain parts, but also take advice from the good riders
on what good parts are, it does help. make sure your set up is comfy and suites the style of riding you want to
pursue.
