BIKE CHECK: Alex Coleborn’s Total Hangover H4

Alex Coleborn is a basically a British institution in his own right.  One of the most successful and respected park riders of our times, with one of the most popular signature park frames ever made: The Total Hangover.  It has to be among the longest-running signature products in the UK as well.

Aside from all that hype, Coleborn is also a great dude, funny to be around, quick to take the piss…  That’s what we like about him.  Our man Adam Lievesley caught a session with Alex at Banbury just before the Coronavirus lockdown – scroll on for some bike info and some great riding.

Q&A with Alex Coleborn

– Hows the new bike feeling? How long you been on this one?

It’s feeling good, can’t beat a fresh set up! been on it for about 3 weeks now.

– Where have you been riding on this bike since you built it?

Mainly just Corby and then Banbury to shoot the photos for the bike check.

– Whats your fav thing about this bike?

I’d 100% say the paint colour, I’ve wanted a gun metal grey bike for a while now so I was stoked to finally get one!


– You’re on a new version of your sig frame, the Total hangover. What are the new features and colours?

We’ve added the built in brake mod which comes as standard now with the frame, which is sick because it looks super clean and makes the brake work amazingly!  We got rid of the built in seat clamp and the back end is slightly shorter as well.

– What was the last contest you rode and how did it go?

Last contest for me was the Backyard Jam final in December, which I won, so that was a pretty sick end to the year.

New brake mod.​

– What else is coming up next for you?

Most contests are on hold at the moment, so not really sure!

– Any shoutouts?

Yeah, massive shoutout to Ronnie Remo for the fresh bike and anybody who’s already bought the new frames!
