Which parts do you go through the most?
I’d have to say grips.

Describe your bike setup and how you like your bike to feel…
I like everything super tight and snug with high tire pressure.

What part are you most particular about or do you feel makes the biggest difference on your bike?
I’d have to say wheel sets. I’m not sure how I would do with someone else’s front tire.

Do you remember your first “real” BMX bike?
Not really.

Do you work on your own bike, or do have other people do it for you?
I do sometimes. When I’m in a rush I’ll have someone else do it.
