Kevin Liu one of our favorite street riders. This talented rider with a super-smooth style hails from Vancouver and riders for Rockman Bikes. He made a name for himself with a series of videos that were a hit on trials forums the world over.

Last month he opened an online trials shop with a cool name, Wherestheseat.com, and is the Canadian distributor of Rockman, Meta and Echo products.

PNG - 303.2 kb Until recently Kevin was riding a Rockman Kortz. He changed bikes recently and is now riding the new Slate II, in orange. He has sent us a video of his first ride and some photos of his bike and details of the spec. His riding is just as smooth and precise as ever and his bike, which we think you will agree is exceptional, weighs in at a shade under 9kg.
