Eastern Bike’s Brett Silva just built up a new Eastern Vaquero. We met up at what appeared to be an abandoned motel to shoot a crazy photo (at the end of the bike check) and grab a few frames of his set up.

Brett ... with his Eastern Vaquero 21.25

Frame:  Eastern Vaquero 21.25    Bars:  Terrible 1  8.85   Fork:  Eastern Hawkeye    Pedals:  Eastern   Cranks:  Eclat   Sprocket:  Shogun 25 tooth   Wheels: Venue’s   (..they can handle the big drops… look at the photos at the end…)  Back Tire:  Fuquay Folding   Front Tire:  Shadow   Headset:  Eastern  Stem:  Animal  Grips: ODI Longnecks   Seat Post:  KInk   Seat:  Duo  Hubs:

What I like best about …..  Best Frame I have ever ridden.  The bigger dropouts in the back make me  feel safe. And it’s the perfect height for me.    BS    I never realized that your intials are B S , just a thought.

Liam would like to thank his sponsors and supporters.   Kink Bikes,  Bern Helmets, Rye AirfieldDick Mauls Bike Shop, Skaters Edge Skate Park, TJD -Jeff Dupaul, and anyone else who has helped him along the way.

Here’s a few photos of Rocco’s most recent set up.

We just posted Zane Bradley’s bike check at  www. tailwhips.org.  Also we are working on two new sections. Local Exposure, which will feature local photographers and videographers…if i spelt that one right… and the Tailwhips CREW section.  Tailwhips has a put together more of a crew than a team, and we want to give them their due.  As for Free-Flow pictures … they should be dropping later this week. Probably in  a couple of  batches.  TW
