Dave built up his Brooklyn Gangsta Track V.2. Here’s what he said about it:
I’ve been building this bike in my head since i heard that the Gangsta was being re-released and the follow up of the Gangsta forks pushed me into finally building it in the flesh. Its not one thing or the other its just my bike, every component has had thought put into it and been derived from trial and error and experience of parts and combinations . The concept was a one bike, to do everything i need a bike to do. The monster inspired the colour-way but the titanium heat treated spokes were a bit of an extravagance. Thanks to Matt at I.D, Tokyo Fixed and George at Edwardes for the help.
