Rail fiend Jai Lakeman recently put together the new Colony Prisma frame so we met up, shot some photos and touched base on his current setup.
How would you describe your personal bike setup?
Small and tall I guess, small frame and tall bars.
Which parts of your bikes are extra picky about?
Just my pedals, never could run anything other than Colony's since day one.
The new Prisma frame is a little shorter in the rear (12.7" slammed) and has a steeper head angle (76.3), how have you found it so far?
Super poppy and quick for spins, also love the little details on this frame like the bridge and oval tubing on the downtube and chainstays.
What parts do you ride the longest?
Sprockets, going on 3 years I think with this Menace guard, just run it till it breaks.
What types of spots have you been enjoying lately?
Just rails, nothing kinked though haha.
If you could ride any city in the world for spots where would you go?
Probably LA I reckon, BCN would be pretty close second for me.
What’s your most enjoyable rail move?
Really getting into crank arms, just love the feeling of them, do like a crook too.
You’ve got a baby due next month, how’s that changed your life since you got the news?
Changes everything haha, scary but really exciting, keen for him to get on a bike.
