2015 GT Wise Sig

Rob Wise Pro frame built up with an assortment of parts for general street fun.

I never thought I'd have a GT again after it appeared that they seemed to forget about modern street and freestyle riding for quite a few years. After a few friends of mine started working there (namely Ben Ward as product manager) I began to take a closer look. What first drew me in was the reintroduction of their legendary 4-piece bars. Being a taller dude with lower back issues I need gigantic bars, so as much as I love them I can't ride them on my 20". Long story short I ended up building one of the Rob Wise (who's riding I am a big fan of—and we're both the same amount of tall) pro frames. I have to say this frame is dialed. My current bike setup feels perfect, and from here on out if I change anything I'll be keeping all of these dimensions in place. This is also my first longterm foray into freecoaster—and I am having a lot of fun trying new things with that. Also brakeless... I haven't ridden brakeless since the 90's when I couldn't keep a rear wheel straight enough.
