Hummmmm… I used to have a bunch of headset spacers, but then I got the Mirra signature 8″ rise bars so now I don’t need to have that many spacers. Haha.
Which parts do you go through the most?
Pedals. I’m not psyched when they get all shaky.
Describe your bike setup and how you like your bike to feel…
I like it to feel solid but light. Other then that, seat low and handlebars high.
Do you remember your first “real” BMX bike?
It was a GT. I forget what model, but it was a race bike even though I never raced.
Is weight important to you? Do you know how much your bike weighs?
Yeah, weight is definitely important. I can go a pound lighter, but I prefer to know my bike can take a little bit of a beating. Nothing sucks more than when you’re riding and your bike brakes and you have to fix it. But yeah, my bike weighs 21.8 pounds.
Hardest trick to learn? Most fun trick to do every day?
Most fun is between a 720 and a lipslide. Hardest trick I learned was a tailwhip, but now I love them!
What’s up with the Mirraco guys running crossbar pads?
I think It was Guettler’s and Mirra’s idea and at the Baltimore Dew Tour Sean from Mirraco had them with him so I threw it on and I’m really psyched on it. And it feels like a little more protection, which can never hurt.
