ODI grip stops so my grips don't stretch out, and cut my bars down a half inch on each side.
Which parts do you go through the most?
Grips, pedals, and chains.
Describe your bike setup and how you like your bike to feel…
Tight, fast, and quite.
What part are you most particular about or do you feel makes the biggest difference on your bike?
I just like to have everything working good, but frame geometry and bar height makes the biggest difference.
Do you remember your first “real” BMX bike?
Yeah, a ’98 chrome Dyno Air with mag wheels…that thing was sick!
Do you like to build up a whole new bike from the ground up, or do you just replace parts as needed?
A whole new bike is always nice, but I usually replace parts as needed in between.
Are you picky about the PSI you run in your tires?
I like them around 70 PSI on the softer side, or 80 PSI for max speed.
