Doan Setups 2020 Johnson 10

Words and photos by Rob Dolecki; bike photos by Shad Johnson.

Hobie Doan and Nathan Williams recently took a trip to upstate New York for a soon-to-be released Kink project. In between destroying spot after spot around Rochester and beyond, and rolling spliffs blindfolded, Hobie took a break and gave us the lowdown on his latest Williams build, as well as a few other topics like the 'Rona situation, DIG House NYC, and plans for what's left of 2020.

Modifications: I cut a 1/4" off each side of the bars.Everything else is straight out the box.

Why crank length? To prevent hitting my heels on my back pegs.

Why top tube length? I don't know; I always rocked the 21.

Oldest part: The sprocket guard.

Newest part: Frame, forks, bars.

Describe your personal bike setup. Rough.I don't like things being too nice and clean.

Describe the contents of your personal bike tool bag. Weed, grinder, 17 and a 6.

What part do you wear through the quickest? Tires and pegs.

Would you ever run free-coaster?

I did have a free-coaster once, way longer than I wanted to, which was like a day.

How long do you usually have a bike for?

I usually have a bike about 4, 5 months. I try to ride every single day, so it gets beat up.

Where do you like riding these days?

I just moved to Portland a year ago, so I open the front door to my apartment, pick a direction, and that's my favorite. Just being able to cruise, not look, just find things naturally.

How’s the COVID situation been for you?

COVID's been a total bummer for me because, I hate all these people getting hurt, I miss my friends. But I'm trying to take advantage of it and see all the schools that are usually popping with security and travel more locally.

How was the DIG HOUSE trip to New York last November?

It was exceptional. Super fun to be able to see friends who ride for different companies all come together for the love of BMX and ride bikes. It was one of my favorite trips.

Plans for the rest of 2020?

Try to stay healthy, continue to be happy in myself and surroundings, and challenge myself both in riding and living happily.
