Which parts do you go through the most?
Grips, pedals, and seats.
Describe your bike setup and how you like your bike to feel…
My handlebars have to be slightly more forward than the angle of my forks, and my tires always have to have high air pressure.
What part are you most particular about or do you feel makes the biggest difference on your bike?
Handlebars and grips. I am not a fan of thick and flangeless grips. Also, my handlebars only have one degree up sweep and 11 back. Anything less then 11 is awkward for me.
Do you remember your first “real” BMX bike?
Although this question has double meaning for me, my first real BMX was a Caloi “Pro-Light” when I was six years old. It was a pretty legit complete bike sold in Brasil with all the good parts, and since then I never had another bike that wasn’t a BMX.
