Jeremiah Smith's signature GT setup
Jeremiah Smith in Pennsylvania
When he's not busy riding his bike at Camp Woodward, traveling the world competing in contests or riding street, you can find X Games BMX Street pro Jeremiah Smith at home in State College, Pa. working on one of his four cars. This is his current project, a BMW e30, with an M50 swamp. He's currently in the process of building it up for drifting, and just finished putting in a full cage. Oh yeah, he knows how to do his own welding too.
Complete GT setup
Since being picked up by GT Bicycles last year, Jeremiah has been working on his first-ever signature frame and parts line with the legendary brand. There is no set release date yet, but the brand is close to finishing up his frame and several other parts that will all be released at the same time.
Signature GT frame
"This my signature prototype frame from GT," says Smith. "I've been riding for a while now and it feels unbelievable, I love it. I don't have a name for it yet but it has a head tube angle of 75, the rear end 13.75", the stand over height is 9" and I run a 21" top tube but it will be available in other lengths when it comes out."
"I'm currently running Demolition 165mm cranks, a Demolition 25t sprocket and a Shadow halflink chain. I like shorter cranks because they help with switch stuff and just feel better in general," says Smith.
"Demolition makes really good, quality, long lasting stuff," says Smith. "And while I'm waiting for my parts line with GT to finish, I've been running these Demolition plastic pedals too. I've been running plastic pedals on and off for about six years. I like plastic pedals because they don't hurt as much and are easier for crank arm grinds."
"This is the Demolition Markit seat. I like a bigger padded seat cause it's more comfortable and easier pinch," says Smith.
"In the back, I'm running the Ezra free coaster hub with a Primo chain side hub guard and on the other side, a GT hub guard. For wheels, I run Alienation Deviant Rims with Demolition Momentum tires," says Smith.
"This is my signature prototype GT topload stem that will be available soon as a part of my parts line called, the 'Smith' line," says Smith.
"In the front, I'm running a GT front hub with Demolition Rob Wise signature forks. Eventually I'll have signature forks coming out in my parts line as well, but in the meantime I'll be running these," says Smith.
"We're still working on a GT logo for my signature frame and parts line, but in the meantime I'll be rocking this one," says Smith.
"I love how clean and simple built-in seat clamps look, so I made sure to integrate one into my signature frame," says Smith.
"These are my signature prototype GT bars. I've been riding these for a while and absolutely love how these feel," says Smith.
"I run the ODI XL grips because ODI grips are the best and they last forever. I love how long they are too. They're like a sofa for your hands, I love 'em," says Smith.
