How would you describe your personal bike setup?

Simple, strong, light and pretty.

Which parts of your bikes are extra picky about?

Definitely tyres... Touchy and feely.

What parts do you ride the longest?

Usually my frame, the way I see it, the more dings, scratches and wear on it, the more character and memories.

How does it feel to have your own signature frame? Were there any features that were ‘must haves' when working on your frame?

It feels crazy to be honest , No other feeling compares to seeing another rider rocking your signature frame.

How’d you go about picking the colorways for your signature frame?

I seem to be drawn to certain colours right as the time comes down to pick .. Based off the energy the colour puts off... According to google, Purple ( my current colour) combines the calm stability of blue and the fierce energy of red. The color purple is often associated with royalty, nobility, luxury, power, and ambition.

Any special mods or things you do when building up a new setup?

I cut my bars down One inch and aways put lots of grease on all bolts and nuts before tightening.. That's about it.

Do you have any new signature product or parts dropping this year?

Yes stoked for the opportunity to create again, I can't say much about them... but keep your eye out as we're always working on new stuff!

What have you got planned for 2020 riding wise? What’s next?

I will be competing in the Vans BMX Pro cup and X-games events, in-between that, Filming for a part in the new COLONY video we have been working on, filming as much as I can for anything else that comes my way and continuing to stay healthy, Meet new people and have fun riding bikes...
