Are there any parts or setup that you are extra picky about?
Ohh, I’m somewhat picky about my bars and stem combo. Changing anything in the front end feels really weird to me.
What parts do you ride the longest?
Frame or forks I’d say.
You have been on Kink now for over a year, how does it feel to have you’re own signature frame? Were there any features you had to have when working on your frame with Kink?
Feels great! The only two things I wanted to make sure about was the shorter back end and the little bit steeper head tube. Other than that I wasn’t too picky.
How’d you go about picking the colorway for your signature frame?
The yellow one was just cause I wanted to emulate the Coors original can as close as possible haha, and then the trans blue just felt good because I hadn’t been on a blue bike in a long time. Then you gotta have the standard black frame.
Any special mods or things you do when building up a new setup?
Nah nothing too crazy, other then just cutting my bars and fork steerer tube a little bit. It's nice to have everything pretty much exactly how I like it straight out of the packaging.
What’s all currently in the works for you in 2020? Any new signature product or parts dropping?
Well as far as parts there will be two new colors of my frame dropping in spring, and then I’ll have an X Games part dropping as well as the video part I’ve been working on with Christian Rigal. And then a few Kink, Etnies and Cinema trips as well throughout the year. So should be busy one!
