Which parts do you go through the most?
Brake cables, tires, and pedals.
Describe your bike setup and how you like your bike to feel…
I like my bike with a shorter back end and about 25 to 26 lbs. Haha its set up to go fast!
Do you remember your first “real” BMX bike?
Yes, it was a GT Fueler. I got it for my 12th birthdy, haha. But I had a little red 14″ Huffy when I was little.
What’s up with the purple and pink paint on your bike?
Haha, my last night in Australia I covered my buddy’s bike in Redline stickers. He runs his bike raw—no paint and a bunch of rust. After I was done with it you couldn’t see his frame, cranks or forks. His Fit turned into a Redline with purple hubs and pedals, and pink rims. So the next morning he woke up before me and painted one side of my bike pink with purple polka dots.
Why is your brake lever on upside down?
Haha, it was the only Dirty Harry lever they had left so I just ran it.
