Phil Dolan bikecheck

Who's older Whitey or Phil? One thing is for sure James is more computer savvy than Phil, good times putting this together! We managed one photo of Phil's bike, good ol Sharlene (Phils wife) saved the day! And its taken me a few hours to re-align Phil's text, what a mission! The banter will live on forever, one of the masters of rolling style im sure you will agree, Phil Dolan! Heres his epic detail...

Frame: KGB New generation psycho something (acid trip purple)
Fork: KHE please dont break while i am riding

Aheadset: Headset with ball bearings
Bars: Odyssey bars from louisiana shredder terry
Bar ends: shredded st martin bars ends
Grips: rubber grips
Stem: old bizhouse stem
Brakes: invisible brakes
Tyres: primo comets fat front emaciated back
Tubes: ones that inflate
Pegs: james whites charity sequence hand me downs
Seatpost: alone
Seatclamp: no idea but works
Seat: Old GT I found in back of shed and weighs a ton
Chain adjustor: One that keeps me tense
Cranks: 170 profiles with ti axle that i still haven't finished paying for
Chainring: blue and massive
Pedals: Odyssey
Rims: Alienation
Hubs: Proper front, Taska freecoaster
Spokes: that just keep breaking

Anything specific to you that you must have on your own ride:
I like my ride to be tight 120psi and when I throw my bike I should'nt be able to hear any rattles.

er whats that.

Advice to beginners on bike set ups?
For beginners dont do a james white and tighten your pegs with your hands, hes the only one who gets away with it,don't grind and chop your bike so light that like james white if the wind is blowing at one mile an hour or someone breathes you get stopped dead a little weight can keep you moving....ask sam fox!

Reference edits of Phil's riding (but not on the kgb):
