7’s – Adam Brayton’s Bike Check

Adam Brayton isn’t nicknamed Gas to Flat for no reason and as a result it’s fair to say he is a man who is hard on bikes so they have to be up to the job and able to take some abuse. We caught up Adam at the Revs BDS to take a closer look at his Scott Gambler and find out how he sets the beast up.

It likes going fast

Scary tracks

– Is there anything top secret or prototype bolted on there?
I guess the Ohlins boxxer cart is pretty special, other than that it’s fully stock.

With the dust settled on the 2016 season and a pretty good one for Brayton at that, we reckon that the upwards trajectory is set to continue and we could see even bigger and better things from him come 2017. #gasttoflat
