On a scale of one to ten, ten meaning you love it, how much do you like working on your bike? And why?
I like working on my bike when there is no pressure. Like when I've got time and I'm not rushing to go ride with everyone or forcing stuff to work just enough to get by! That's when I enjoy it. A tight bike is a fast bike and I like speed!
How long do you typically ride a bike before building a new one? Do you switch out parts as they go? Or just build a whole fresh kit?
I only switch parts out when and if needed be. Sometimes I'll ride the same setup for what seems to be an eternity
What is the oldest part on your bike?
The oldest part is my brake lever.
Explain the rubber piece between your sprocket and BB…
I heard it slows down the cranks by creating friction between the bottom bracket and sprocket. But it doesn’t seem to be doing that job well. My cranks still spin and I'm too lazy to remove it.
Tell us more about the prototype aluminum pegs… With most pegs being steel or plastic, what made you guys go with aluminum?
It's a test setup, I like aluminum pegs. They slide good on coping and waxed ledges and they are really light. And they have the classic metal grind feel still.
Tell us about your frame. What makes it yours, as far as specs, features, et cetera?
My frame is an experiment and I love it. It’s my signature and it is different than any other frame. I have a 20.6" top tube with a 76 degree headtube—I wanted it to feel sharper, I wanted the bars to spin quicker, spins to start faster and tailwhips to spin more stable. I also have a 71.5 degree seattube—a bit steeper to bring the seat closer to my knees to pinch quicker and less stretched away. It has a high 11.8 BB and 9.2" stand over to keep the bike looking like a classic BMX. It also has a 13.3" back end. I always let people barspin my bike to show how easy it is—everyone loves it
What are you most particular about on your bike… chain tension, grips—thick, thin, new, or worn-out, tire pressure, et cetera?
I like tire pressure being at 90 PSI, the bike is way faster with high pressure and more predictable.
Are you willing to experiment with new parts and mix things up, or do you prefer to stick to tried and true?
I get the urge to change it up sometimes. I have been riding for so long that I have tried it all at least twice. I like where my bike is for now, but I would like to change the color, maybe all Jet Fuel—that would be tight.
