How would you describe your personal bike setup?
Which parts of your bikes are extra picky about?
Tubes, chain, and seat.
What parts do you ride the longest?
How does it feel to have your own signature frame? Were there any features that were ‘must haves' when working on your frame?
It's super motivating and still does not feel real, The tapers on the tubes and all the dimensions were must haves.
Any special mods or things you do when building up a new setup?
I cut my Bars & Seat post, Put some Lightweight tubes in.
How come you run 1 CrMo peg on the front wheel and not plastic?
The CrMo peg is for toothpicks stalls, it helps grip on the coping.
How have the Covid restrictions affected your riding this past 18 months?
it's been good to Go a bit deeper into filming video parts, and explore some Techniques I had always put off because I didn't really put the time into learning it, which now I can Fully focus on.
What else have you got planned for this year riding wise? What’s next?
Finishing a Video part for Vans then I plan to Ride bikes and have fun.

Beenleigh is great for big ramps, going high and fast and Coorparoo is a dope street style park in Brisbane I have been loving, heaps of skaters and the energy is good.
Outside of riding, what have you been up to of late?
Laying low to be honest... Yoga, meditation, exercising, swimming, listening to audio books, journaling and Drawing as of late!
