Which part are you the most particular about?
Bar angle for sure. If it moves even a millimetre I feel so messed up. I spend so much time adjusting the angle until it’s perfect
What part on your bike has changed the least since you started riding?
This ones tough. I’ve switched things up quite a bit over the years. But one thing I’ve always done over the years is painting one side of my front pedal so I know which side to grind on so I always have a bit of grip.
Favorite part of the new bike?
Gotta be the new Neptune tire. These things are hella grippy and since I put tires on rails quiet a bit. I am loving the tacky feel of these tires.
Why did you choose the Bruno V3 frame for this latest build?
I was riding a super short back end for a while now and was having a hard time getting used to how twitchy it was. Wanted something a little more stable riding bigger setups and since I’m a taller guy, it feels amazing!
