Bike Check: Jamie Skinner’s Hoffman Bama

Hoffman Bikes‘ UK rider Jamie Skinner has been on fire lately and built up this all-new Bama set-up. Is it a coincidence that the new white 2016 Hoffman Bama complete bike is the same colour combo as Jamie’s bike? Probably not!  Let’s get into Jamie’s new bike here.

What custom mods have you made to your bike?
I haven’t made any custom mods to my bike just yet!
What’s the newest part on your bike?
I have just finished building up a whole new bike. Thanks Mark!
What’s the oldest part on your bike – any part you just won’t change?
Seat post. I don’t think they even make them that long any more!
How often do you put together a new set-up?
Maybe once or twice a year.
How good are you at keeping the thing dialled?
I try to keep on top of the maintenance, feels so much better when everything is running smooth.
What else is new – what are you planning next?
Heading to Hastings soon for the new United DVD premiere and to check out the new Source park. Heading to Lyon, France in a few weeks, so will hopefully be able to get some clips and finish off my edit that I’ve been filming for the last few months.
