How long do you typically ride a bike before building a new one?
I usually ride a bike until the new one comes out or the new colors are available, so that could be a year or six months, but usually for more than a year.
Do you switch out parts as they go? Or just build a whole fresh kit?
I normally change parts as they get old. I think I have only put a whole new bike together once in my life. I think I like to give the parts as much use as I can.
What parts do you change out the most often and why?
Usually the most is grips and then tires. There are a couple of other things I like to change more often than others, too, like I won't risk too much with the front end—even though I know the parts usually are really strong, but is something that has always been in my head.
What are you most particular about on your bike?
I really like it to be dialed and the chain tension has to be perfect as I can’t deal with it if is not they way I want it.
Do you make any special modifications or just run everything pretty much stock?
I used to do a lot of modifications to a few parts, but these days you have many choices and everything comes more or less the way I want it, but I still made my own version of the rear hubguard and not much else besides cutting the bars and fork steerer tube a bit down.
