When I think of Brady Tweedy, the first thing that comes to my mind is his amazing opening section in Volume’s Volume 2. Brady Tweedy is the truth on the streets. Go ahead and watch that amazing example of street riding again, then check out his Volume Vessel that he gets all that wild shit done with…

Why do you run plastic pegs up front and metal in the rear?
I just got sick of exploding plastics pegs on the back and kinda just kept the plastics up front. Works out sick for gritty stuff.
You grind the pedals and cranks on both sides of your bike, as well the guard sprocket. Which goes through the most abuse?
Definitely my pedals. I go through those like crazy. My sprocket is looking nice and chunky nowadays too…
What is the significance of the tennis ball in your back wheel?
Street cred [laughs] just kidding. Watching old BMX videos I always saw the OG dudes doing it and so I have always had one in—and it keeps my spokes tight.
Describe your bike for us… What makes it your ride?
Bars aligned with the forks, low PSI, I don’t mind my chain being sloppy. I like my bike tall, long, and low PSI.
What are you most particular about on your bike?
Seat height and probably bar position.
