If you could describe your bike in three words, what would they be?

I would say my bike is planted, smooth, and responsive.

Which parts on your bike are you most specific about?

Probably grips, there is only a handful of grips that I can run without my hands slipping when they sweat. Especially in humid conditions.

What is one thing you do to set up a bike which you have to do on every bike?

It sounds silly but I like having valve caps on my bikes, because the black just smooths the look out and you don’t have to see the copper color of the threads on the stem. I also try to keep most logos together, for example having the tire logo lined up with the rim sticker.


What part do you wear through the quickest?

Honestly, I wouldn’t know, I rotate my pegs and don’t do many pedal grinds. But if I had to choose something to replace first it would be my pedals, I can’t stand a pair of worn out pedals with no grip.

If you were dropped on a desert island and you could only take three bike parts with you to survive, what would you take and how would you use them?

I mean I probably wouldn’t need any - I could just eat dirt the whole time since I already thrive in the desert. Just kidding, first I’d take a set of steel pegs, because I feel like you could use them as a spark if you hit them together. Second I’d choose a chain because maybe you could use it as a hand driven chain saw to cut smaller trees town for shelter. And third it would be a fork, id sharpen them on the drop out with a rock or something and use it as a spear to hunt and catch food with. I chose these because they are more or less smaller and would be easy to travel with.
