Which do enjoy working on more, your bike or your yard?
The yard is always a project, but I go through phases of doing different things, street lately.
What parts do you go through the fastest?
Grips, pedals, pegs, gyro cables… I guess it depends on if I’m riding parks, the yard, or street.
Which part on your current bike have you had the longest?
I have a titanium back axle that I’ve had for years.
What’s up the sprocket and hub guard?
I had an Odyssey MDS that I cut half of the inside guard off, but my driver went bad so I’ve been running the little tiny gear for a little while. I need to go back to the 28 with a guard because I keep breaking chains. I made my hubguard on the lathe in my basement that my dad gave me.
When are you going to license your ski bike designs and become rich?
I’m working on it.
You’ve had a lot of people passing through your house lately. Who has come through and how crazy has it really been?
Damn… most of the Sunday guys came for a day, Stew Johnson, Dirt Ron, Dave Thompson, Garrett Reynolds, Dennis Enerson, Catfish, Drew Bezanson, Brian Yeagle, Clint Reynolds, Uhhhhhhhhh, I don’t know… a bunch of people, I can’t think of them all, it’s been fun… Oh yeah Big Daddy was there!
