Modifications/Other/Extras:
Cut bars an inch and a quarter. Pretty much it… I like it simple.

Which parts do you go through the most?
Rear wheels.

Describe your bike setup and how you like your bike to feel…
Long top tube, and tall frame. I’m a tall, lanky dude so I need a big bike to fit me.

What part are you most particular about or do you feel makes the biggest difference on your bike?
Big bars and a long frame and I am good. I just need something that’s comfortable.

Do you remember your first “real” BMX bike?
Yeah, haha. It was a Dyno VFR.

Explain your custom frames that Premium makes for you…
It’s just a Garrett frame with a taller stand over height and a longer top tube to fit my tall, lanky figure.
