BIKE CHECK: DE SHUEN AND

HIS CUSTOM PAINTED BLACK MARKET MOB

WHO'S RIDING WHAT?

 

 

After a couple of bike checks on trail-going full-suspension mountain bikes, we spotlight on an "almost classic" build - a street MTB that's built around the cult-class Black Market Mob frame. Photographed not long after a full "overhaul" with custom Black Chrome paint on the frame, De Shuen's bike was as immaculate as any show room bike. But don't assume that this is just a collector's bike! This bike can be seen around the East Coast Parkway Skate Park area a few times a week. We especially love this set of photos submitted by De Shuen as it was shot by our good old photographic master Darren Matthias Chan - clean and sharp.
