Christian needs a bike that can handle a beating. Setup strong and with dimensions suited for a bigger rider, Christian’s United can send him bombing down massive rails all over the world. We caught up with Christian while in California filming for the new United  full length DVD , Still United, and got a look at his current setup. Oh and by the way, his new upcoming United part might just be the burliest section we've we've seen...

Favorite part: I'd have to say the Demolition Bipolar pegs. Without the plastics there’s no way I could be grinding all the stuff that I find.

Mods? I grind down the nuts that tighten down my back hub so my 2 hub guards fit nicely, if not you have to pull the back end apart to get your wheel in. I also cut my bars down 2 inches and interlace my front wheel.

Tell me about your favorite all time bike? It would have to be the first sample I got of my United frame. It'll be hard to beat that feeling!

What do you like riding these days? I've been having a lot more fun riding bowls and weird street transitions, but I still love grinding as much as I can throughout the day.

Plans for 2016? Riding, filming, taking photos, traveling, hanging out with my friends, all that good stuff! Each year gets better and better so I'm trying to keep that going!
