Which parts do you go through the most?
Tires, pegs, and I like to switch colors a lot, so mainly rims, hubs, and stem.
Describe your bike setup and how you like your bike to feel…
Not too light. Sturdy, noiseless, and looking nice!
What part are you most particular about or do you feel makes the biggest difference on your bike?
I love new grips, and there’s nothing better than a completely new bike!
Do you remember your first “real” BMX bike?
Haha yeah. A Haro Backtrail Nyquist x2 in blue.
Do you normally build up a whole new bike from the ground up, or do you just replace parts as needed?
Usually it’s parts as I go, but Volume and Demolition are awesome and let me get a whole new kit every once in a while and there’s nothing better!
Are you particular about how much PSI you run in your tires?
Ummm, I like to ride a minimum of 70 for street, and 80-90 for park.
