A FEW WORDS FROM TAM ABOUT HIS SETUP:
"I’d rode the Safari frame for years but started feeling like I was needing a change as my style was changing so the slightly shorter back end and a 21.2" top tube I'm running now with this Grime frame is feeling perfect and I also love the look of the yoke chain stays"
I'm running the Hubba Pegs as I prefer the consistency of metal pegs. I really like when they are broken in because I feel like it locks you in grinds better and they also provide other acoustic pleasures!
I run the NASA rims as I’m quite a heavy boy so the rims get heavily abused, I don’t think it makes too big a difference if you maintain your wheels but I just like the idea of strong as possible, haha.
With the rest of my bike, as long as it feels good I’m happy to run whatever and I’m always changing parts up for how I feel at the time. Right now the setup I'm running is 100% the best it’s ever felt!"
