Which parts do you go through the most?
Probably grips or tires.
Describe your bike setup and how you like your bike to feel…
I like my bike to feel as solid as possible. I just make sure if my bike hits the ground there is nothing rattling around.
What part are you most particular about or do you feel makes the biggest difference on your bike?
Does frame count as a “part,” ’cause if so, the frame because it’s the main thing holdin’ everything together. Other than that I would say the wheels. Fast and smooth rollin’ wheels can really improve any shred sled!
Do you remember your first “real” BMX bike?
S&M Warpig! Frame was like nine pounds of destruction, glory, and fun!
