Modifications/Other/Extras:
None that I can think of.

Which parts do you go through the most?
Grips...I have sand paper hands!

Describe your bike setup and how you like your bike to feel…
My bike always looks kinda beat...but that's the way I like it. If it's too nice I cant even ride it. It makes me want to ride a Dew Tour or something. Weird, huh?!

What part are you most particular about or do you feel makes the biggest difference on your bike?
Grips! You know, like when you look in someone's eyes and you get that uneasy feeling? Ya...gotta feel at ease when you hold on to them bars!

Do you remember your first “real” BMX bike?
Yes! It was a Murry with purple wheel covers and a headlight. Wait is that a real BMX bike? I broke it in half riding a wheelie, if that helps.

How long have you been riding a freecoaster hub?
I have been on the coaster solid for like two years, thanks to Bruce Crisman!

What’s it like having a whole signature line of part?
It's cool...It's still kinda weird when I think about it, really. With the Bama stuff I get full say on what I want done. There hasn't been really any changes on the frame from 2010 to 2011 because I love the look, feel, and weight. The forks and bars have been going through a few changes though. Things seem to only be getting better and better. As for Shadow, we all get a lot of input in the parts as well. I have been working on a signature aluminum crank, and have been able to put all my ideas in. Really stoked on all my sponsors right now. They're all great friends as well as great people to work with.
