What are some specifics of how you like to have your bike setup… PSI, bar position, etc…
I generally try to keep my bike setup as simple as possible and to do as little maintenance as possible to it. I cut the bars down an inch each side. My psi is about 60 in both tires.

Are you willing to experiment and try out new stuff? Or do you prefer to stuck to tired and true?
I'm for trying new stuff, although I have never been able to change my grips—I'v been riding ODI Longnecks for years now.

You're running a guard up front on your non-peg side. Where you running a third peg for a bit?
I was running four pegs a while back and felt like a bit of change so I took two off. The front hub just happens to come with guards built into it.
