How is this set up specific to your riding needs? 

Specific needs lol, I don't know what my needs are but it's very comfortable and responds fast to my neeeeddssss

Special mods? What’s with the string?

String is more of a bow to times gone by, tying things to bikes was a thing in the late 90's early 00's. I don't run pins on my pedals, hate the locked in feeling, cut flanges and rings off grips, and about 60 psi that'll do it!

What are you most particular about on your bike?

Pedals! I have to sand them down in a curb before riding, weird I know 

Parts you go through the most?

Pedals tyres and headsets, bike goes flying a lot always flipping out! 

How often do you work on your bike, are you a bike maintenance type of guy?

Not really I much rather my bike to feel beaten up, my bikes always feel best when I need a new one. I like the worn in feel!
