Describe your bike for us… What are some preferences for your bike set up?
I ride a T1- Barcode littered in Profile components with a splash of bicycle union Peppering. Its classic geometry on a classic bike, built to go really fast and really high. Nothing Twitchy or gimmicky about it. Its the sort of bike that you can roll up to any session on and tell people to Shut up and sit down!
Are there any specifics to your bike setup that are dictated to how or what you ride?
As I said before, classic geometry. Nothing Nibbly, Just a bike made for roasting!
Are you the kinda person that works on their bike a lot, keeping it tight and running dialled?
Not really, Its generally pretty dialled. Try to keep the brakes and wheels as dialled as possible.
How long do you typically ride a bike before building a new one? Do you switch out parts as they go?
Until the wheels fall of man! Keep a frame as long as possible. Update everything else usually after about a year or so.
What are you most particular about on your bike?
What do you love most about your current ride?
Apart from how sick it rides, All the companies that make up this bike are 100% BMX! They support it in the right ways and have never deviated to flavour of the moment gimmicks. Everything on my bike has history and legitimacy behind it!
Anything else you would like to add?
Huge thanks to Matt Coplon and the whole team at Profile racing for setting such a high standard in the industry and for keeping such a innovative burning passion alive in BMX. Thanks to Joe Rich at TerribleOne For making such a sick bike and setting the tone for style and aggression in BMX over the years. Thanks to John Dye at Bicycle Union for his total disregard of anything jabroni associated (which is a lot) within the BMX industry and maintaining a no bullshit core to the bone brand! Keep BMX in the hands of BMXers!
