Viki Gomez bikecheck

An intro for Viki, without mentioning he's the 2010 World No 1, one of the most stylish and influential riders in the world is quite difficult, I've already blown that infact, but moving on, what I found interesting about this set up, is that Viki has tried all manner of set ups, read his advice at the end of this bikecheck and settled happily for this ride! What he might not settle for is the English winter! Enough of me rambling...

Any modifications: 
I put a higher bar and a longer street stem for better balance in most of my tricks. Also shorter pecs for better and easier pivoting.

My bike now is the ultimate model ever and just perfect just how it is.

Advice to beginners on bike set ups?If you want to improve your back wheel get a short frame,so you can manage deathtrucks, tailwhips, etc...if you want to improve your level of whiplashes put a very high and width bar and a longer frame. If you want to improve your pivot level, then put long pegs to learn even if you will not need them in the future. Besides that, train hard and try to learn something new everytime!

Interesting about the smaller pegs, I can't pivot at all on them, kills my feet also, had to change to a bigger peg, the gomez fly peg ironically....

It is similar to the Boo, I believe. Taska's/Ares sealed bearing freecoaster. I love bike checks.
