Stephan Hearn bikecheck

Since his part in "Create" dropped, Stephan Hearn has been one of my favourite riders, if you missed that video part I suggest you hunt it down, and witness the backwards rolling and xft pivots skills for yourself. Stephan is amazing, hope to ride with him in december when i am out in california. Enjoy his ride!

Advice to beginners on bike set ups? Don't worry about weight and angles and all that, the most important thing for a beginner is to just get the feel of the basic positions and you dont need a crazy set up for that.  Also, don't get too frustrated flatland takes alot of time and patience just stick with it and it'll come around.
