How long does it take you to build a complete bike from scratch?
From scratch, about half an hour.
Can you remember how hard it used to put a bike together? How grateful are you that bikes are so well built today, what issues did you used to have?
Yes, I remember perfectly haha... I always had problems with my wheels, especially with the back hub.
How do you feel your riding has evolved now that bikes are so well built? Were there any limitations to your riding because bikes used to be built so badly or geometry was so off?
I feel great because everything is so much easier now. Not really.
Do you still get the same excitement from building a new bike?
Of course yes because I feel motivated.
Do you make any personal modifications to your bike or are there any custom one off parts?
No, I don't have any personal modifications.
Is there a feature or part on your bike that has to always remain the same from each bike to the next?
Yeah the height of the bars, if it’s not in the perfect position and height I can't ride comfortably.
What's been your favorite color combination on any of your bikes so far?
My favorite color setup is Black on Black.
Do you think you'll ever cross over to using a freecoaster and could you see more ramp riders using freecoasters in the future?
I think no, because I already tried it and it’s not for me! Yeah why not, in the future I see more ramp riders with freecoasters.
What's your riding scene like right now, who do you ride with etc?
I ride with all my friends here in Pamplona Spain and we enjoy everyday
What's your daily routine when you're not traveling?
Study in the morning, in the afternoon I ride and at night chill cruising around with friends.
What are your plans for 2016, any videos planned, trips or other projects?
Yeah I have some videos planned with Fly Bikes and trips with Vans so I'm really happy with everything.
What do you get up to when you're not riding or traveling?
Time to spend with my family and take a rest, but also I like to ride at my home spots.
Get out of your comfort zone and shred everything.
