Bike Check - Colin Henley's EAI Bareknuckle





The real deal.



Colin Henley's bruised & abused EAI Bareknuckle track bike is fucking dialed. A daily work bike for the past number of years, his Bareknuckle has been a daily workhorse for courier work, Roy Rides, Harbour Sprints, and summertime jaunts down to Electric Beach.

Cutting his teeth on the "mean" streets of 1990s Toronto, Colin has ridden the full range of two-wheeled cycles over the years. From rigid mountain bikes on frozen city streets, to cross-Canada tours deep into winter.
