Which parts do you go through the most?
Pedals and Tires

Describe your bike setup and how you like your bike to feel…
Fast and tight! Not trying to ride a slug!

What part are you most particular about or do you feel makes the biggest difference on your bike?
I like my bars kicked a little forward and my seat to have the right angle. Bikes have angles and everything should line up to look/ride good. I hate new tires as well!

Do you remember your first "real" BMX bike?
Of course, a steel Dyno VFR! That bike was so hittin’! Broke my first bone on that bike. I miss that thing!

What is going on with you and frame sponsors at the moment?
Just living that Solid life for the time being…

How important is it to you that your bike looks good?
I like it to look dialed! Not trying to polish a turd!

How important is weight to you? Do you know how much this bike weighs?
Not very important…when I was 15 my bike was over 33lbs. So I think anything now is just fine. Shit, wish I had a heavy ass bike sometimes. It never broke back then! But my bikes weight is about 20-22lbs! It’s bangin’!
