Modifications/Other/Extras:
Cut bars and forks.

Which parts do you go through the most?
Pegs, pedals, and grips.

Describe your bike setup and how you like your bike to feel…
Long and low, but still responsive.

What part are you most particular about or do you feel makes the biggest difference on your bike?
The bike as a whole. If I’m psyched on how it feels, I’m happy to ride it.

Do you remember your first “real” BMX bike?
Yeah, it was a Gary Fisher Pure Bender Kick--the one below the Air Bob. I loved that thing, and I still have it.

Do you normally build up a whole new bike from the ground up, or do you just replace parts as needed?
I try to keep my bike as long as possible. I usually just replace the frame, bars, and forks.

Are you particular about how much PSI you run in your tires?
Kind of. I run them at about 50psi...saves the wrists.

I hear you are on a brand new signature Fly frame...what’s the specs and info on that bad boy?
Yeah I’m so psyched on it. It feels exactly how I wanted it to. I couldn't be happier.
