Since we introduced Nick Clarke with his Welcome to The Rise video last week, let's have a look at what kind of setup he uses on his Partymaster. After riding brakeless for a long time, Nick now uses brakes, and a Gyro on a custom painted white Partymaster. Nick's setup is super dialed and judging by his welcome video and his recent 2nd place at The Brosefarm Jam, looks like he managed to build the perfect Dirt Jumping Bike. Keep on reading to see what Nick has to say about his whip, and check out the full bikecheck below!
"When I first heard about The Rise and the Partymaster I was so stoked! The boys have always had a big reputation in the ParkStreetDirt field, and I knew that this was going to turn some heads! I have been a friend of the crew for years, but after going through so much together in South Africa for the super loop project, it felt like more of a family and I'm pumped to grow with them! I hopped on Matt's Partymaster, gave it a personal paint job and the rest is History! This is the bike for me! Between the name, the feel of the bike, and the beautiful welding and fab work by Gabo, this frame is a winner and I'm super pumped for what the future holds! From the first ride, you could feel that this bike is made by riders for riders! The long top tube and short chainstays are a perfect combination for barspins and combo tricks, not to mention spins! From the streets to the Dirt Jumps, the Partymaster keeps you in full control and leaves you feeling no limitations to the tricks you've been dreaming up! The ladies love the partymaster as well! At least the South African ladies!"
