Cut my bars down about 3/4″ on each side. OMP 40s.

How often do you put a new bike together?
It all depends…sometime a couple a year. It’s always hard to get used to the way a new bike feels though.

Tell us a little more about your stem.
It’s a prototype signature stem that I’m doing with Odyssey. I’m really psyched on it, and it should hopefully be out soon.

You run a pretty hard gear ratio, how has that been working out for you?
Yeah I run a 30-9…I like it a lot. It feels really good with 180s because you have so much torque.

What part are you most particular about or do you feel makes the biggest difference on your bike?
I’d say probably the bars. I’m pretty specific with how much I cut ’em down and the placement.
