What I Ride - Andrew Castaneda

Tell us about your frame… what are some specs and features that you wanted to make it your bike?
I was already riding the SOS so I just want stayed with the same geometry. I choose to make the frame graphic of my hometown Santa Ana. I’m so hyped on everything from the awesome color to the geometry—it’s perfect.

What about the Cult / The Trip collab part? How did that come about?
It was just something I wanted to do since The Trip is something I believe in and lucky both Ty Morrow and Robbie [Morales] were down with the idea.

Describe this bike for us… What makes it your ride?
It's probably the 170mm cranks and a shorter back end. My tires also have to be a little squishy.

Setup or part wise, what was the last major game changer for you?
Probably the freecoaster, it’s so much more fun.

How long do you typically ride a bike before building a new one?
I ride all my parts until they get close to the end. They all hold up so well so I don’t change parts out too often. I’ll normally switch out parts as they go.

What parts do you change out the most often?
My tires and grips are the parts that normally go first. It always feels good when I put on the new tires.

What are you most particular about on your bike?
I’m not too picky about my bike. I ride the parts as they come so it’s pretty easy to stay consist with my bike. My bars being in the right position is pretty important.

Are you willing to experiment with new parts and mix things up, or do you prefer to stick to tried and true?
Yeah, I’m always willing to mess around with anything Cult or Primo want me to test. I know they put time and effort into everything they make so everything typically proves to be strong.
