Chris Silva has a new bike check up on the Animal site right now with his Borato V3. Not much has changed since the last one we did with him in the summer, but go give it a look here and take a close look at his prototype axle nuts.

Chris Silva Video Bike Check

Chris Silva is a man of few words, and very particular about what he runs on his bike. While he was out in Vancouver we forced him to run through his bike in between filming some clips. Take a quick run through his Borato V3 with a few prototype pieces, and catch some riding and pegless rail action.
