Modifications/Other/Extras:
I don’t have back pegs ’cause I don’t need ’em. I love matte black, so I always spray paint my bike matte black, but since I’m not a painter it looks ugly.

Which parts do you go through the most?
Spokes, tires, and grips.

Describe your bike setup and how you like your bike to feel…
I have pretty much a street bike: Two-piece bars, straight tubes, and 20.5″ top tube because I like how it looks and the way it feels. I’m tall…

What part are you most particular about or do you feel makes the biggest difference on your bike?
I like to have a long stem and a zero offset fork…so good for nose wheelies.

Do you remember your first “real” BMX bike?
Yes! I was 14, it was a twenty parking!

When did you decide to take off your back pegs, and why?
A couple months ago because I wasn't doing anything with them, and the only original trick I did on the back wheel is that G-turn manual stuff, and I don’t need pegs for it.

How has the lack of back pegs affected your riding?
My riding is not affected on the lack of pegs. I just don’t do back wheel upside down tricks anymore, which I find too flatland for me.

How would you describe your current riding style?
A mix between street and flat.
