Back wheel is slammed—makes it easier for nose wheelie tricks and hops.
Which parts do you go through the most?
Tubes, pedals, and cranks .
Describe your bike setup and how you like your bike to feel…
Usually small, it feels better to maneuver.
Do you remember your first “real” BMX bike?
20-inch chrome Mongoose, plastic rims, and V cut bars. EPIC!
How did your gig with Sunday come about? Who hooked you up with the flow deal?
Brian Osborne and Chris Mahaffey kind of got me the gig.They drop my name by Jim Cielincki and I guess he decided to help me out on some parts.
Why do you have holes drilled in your stem?
No reason really…got bored and decided to shave a couple pounds off the front end, haha.
Would you say Aaron Ross’ bikes were an inspiration for your current setup? Or does it just look that way because of the colors Sunday bikes and Odyssey parts come in?
Well, Jim asked me if I would like to to try out Aaron’s new frame. It sounded like a cool setup and color scheme, so it kinda worked out like that, but I’m definately satisfied on the frame.
