You're getting a signature frame soon, what can we expect from it? 

Integrated chain tensioners, power tool inspired graphics, basically an overhauled version of the current Monash frame. 

You recently moved your bars forward, why did you do that and has it helped? 

It helps with stability on nose manuals and changes the balance point and I like the feel of them further forward for barspins.

You do a lot of crankarm grinds but you don't really mess with them on square rails, what do you find different compared to round? 

I feel like they lock in a lot better on round rails compared to square.

You run plastic pegs and have done for a couple years now, would you ever go back to metal pegs?

Nah, plastics pegs have opened up so many more options grind wise, like stainless steel rails and really rough ledges.

Do you run maximum slack in your freecoaster?

Yeah maximum slack for minimum chance of engagement when travelling backwards.
