How would you describe your personal bike setup?

Clean, quick and responsive

Which parts of your bikes are extra picky about?

I don't like too much tire pressure and I haaaate fucked up pedals, nobody needs these unnecessary shinners haha.

What parts do you ride the longest?

KINK cranks are definitely indestructible, rode my first pair for two years and they were still running! Just wanted to try some shorter ones.

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

I cut my bars to 27,5" and mark my pedals on the top side.

How have the Covid restrictions affected your riding this year?

Not too much to be honest... went to BCN for the dub jam in February before everything started. Rode a lot of street with my boys at home, visited the homies in Stuttgart and Cologne a couple times, filmed a part for Freedombmx's bangers 2020 video contest and was lucky enough to get involved in the Vans 'The Circle' contest -- shout out Kunstform bmx shop!

What’s next?

I had a lot of spare time this year and worked on a new project called Laterr. You can get a sneak peak of the first pieces in my current instagram clips and I'm really hyped on it. I'm still working on a couple details, but I would appreciate a follow @laterr_threads. Promo video very soonish. More information laterr..
