Hailing from Melbourne Australia, Jack Kelly has been banging out some great video parts the past few years and just continues to progress and progress. We figured it was time to give you guys a run down of what he runs to get it done.
Frame: Colony Monash 20.75"
Forks: Colony Guardian.
Bar Ends: Colony Konka.
Grips: Colony Muchroom.
Stem: Colony Squareback.
Seat/post: Colony Alex Hiam Combo.
Cranks: Colony 22's.
Bottom Bracket: Colony Mid 22mm.
Pedals: Colony Fantastic Plastic.
Sprocket: Colony Menace Guard.
Back wheel: Colony Freecoaster laced to a Colony Contour rim.
Tires: Demolition Momentum.
Any Modifications? Cut steerer tube and cut bars down to 27.5".
Bars over the numbers.
You're getting a signature frame soon, what can we expect from it?
Integrated chain tensioners, power tool inspired graphics, basically an overhauled version of the current Monash frame.
You recently moved your bars forward, why did you do that and has it helped?
It helps with stability on nose manuals and changes the balance point and I like the feel of them further forward for barspins.
You do a lot of crankarm grinds but you don't really mess with them on square rails, what do you find different compared to round?
I feel like they lock in a lot better on round rails compared to square.
You run plastic pegs and have done for a couple years now, would you ever go back to metal pegs?
Nah, plastics pegs have opened up so many more options grind wise, like stainless steel rails and really rough ledges.
Do you run maximum slack in your freecoaster?
Yeah maximum slack for minimum chance of engagement when travelling backwards.
