These are the bikes of the pros. Or at least some of them...


Sponsors: MacNeil, SoBe Beverage Company,
Axion, Oakley, Primo, Profile, Tip Plus, We the
People, SST, XS.

Frame: The MacNeil Miron frame. None of our bikes
are going to have any weird names. It's just going to be
What sizes are the frames available in? 20-1/4"
and 20-3/4"
What's the reason for the two different sizes?
The rear dropouts are made as small and as light as
possible. They're the perfect size to cover the chain
when the wheel is right up at the front [of the dropout],
but because of this there isn't a lot of room in the
back-end for adjustment. I don't think you should offer
too much adjustment in the back-end. It changes the
geometry of the frame too much, so we offer the frame
in tow top tube lengths.
Forks: We The People; the MacNeil forks aren't done
yet, and We The People forks are super strong.
Stem: MacNeil
Bars: MacNeil
Bar ends: MacNeil (aluminum)
Wheels: Profile "SS" Cassette hubs with Araya RB-J1
Gearing: 36-13; I think that's the wave of the future.
Sprocket: MacNeil
Cranks: Profile
Pedals: Primo Pro; they don't bend and they kick butt.
Seat: Primo Hemorrhoid
Seatpost: Primo
Pegs: Primo Terrible One pegs;
Brakes: Dia Compe 990's
Levers: Dia Comp Tech 77's
Tires: Primo Walls 1.85"
Detangler: SST. I think that's the only way to go
because every other detangler is stupid.
Front Hub: Primo Pro
Front brake cable: Ten Pack cable; we have them
manufactured ourselves.
Any special modifications?
I angle my front brake pads so the brakes feather
easier. I go to Chicago and check out where the guys in
the ghetto have their bars and I make mine look the
same. You shouldn't have to modify your bike too
much if you run good parts.


Bike Inspection: Terrible
One's Joe Rich

December 31, 2000

Sponsors: Terrible One, Etnies, Primo, Fox Racing
and Trend Bike Source

Frame: Terrible One Barcode
Top tube length: 20.625"
Back end: Set up at 14-1/4" works best for me.
Forks: S&M Pitchfork
Stem: Nate Hansen designed Primo Pro
Bars: T1, medium size
Cranks: Primo Powerbite
Sprocket: T1 Gower-Power, 45-tooth
Chain: KMC. They're inexpensive and I think they're
just as strong as any normal-size chain out there.
Wheels: My wheels are kind of old-school right now.
The front wheel is two-and-a-half years old. I still run
the small Ukai 48-hole rims laced into Suzue high
flange hubs with 3/8-inch axles and normal-size
spokes. I have an XS 4x4 hub for the rear because
I've never had any problems with it.
Peddles: Primo Tenderizers
Pegs: Primo Pro T1's
Seat: Primo Hemorrhoid
Seatpost: Primo
Seatpost clamp: Primo, single clamp
Detangler: Nate's stem comes with [top cable
stops]. The bottom piece is an SST Oryg. I use an
Odyssey top cable and an SST bottom cable. The
Odyssey cables have a coating on them, at least the
top ones do. Plus it looks different than a black
cable. It's just a change.
Tires: I run a Primo Dirt Monster in the front. There
was a 1.95" Primo V-Monster in the back, but I blew it
out and the only tire that was here was an old
Schwinn tire. So right now my rear tire is a Schwinn,
but I usually don't run that.
Headset: Dia Compe Tank
Grips: Primo
Bar ends: Primo (aluminum)
Brake Lever: Dia Compe Tech 77
Brakes: Dia Compe 990
Freewheel: ACS Claw 16-tooth

Special Modifications
"I cut the seatpost off to lighten it up. It doesn't sit
any deeper than the top tube. I run my seat pretty
low so there would be six-inces of extra tubing if I
didn't do that."
"Before I put the grips on, I boil them and stretch
them. Just put them in a boiling pot for a few minutes
then stretch them real good, they feel two weeks
worn by the time you get them on."
"The levers have to be bent, a little more rounded
than the lever actually comes."
