What custom mods have you made to your bike?

I always cut my bars down a little bit, cut the seatpost, that’s pretty much it.

What’s the newest part on your bike?

I think it’s pegs and hubguards.

What’s the oldest part on your bike – any part you just won’t change?

My Awake frame is the oldest part on this bike so far, it’s a prototype and I’ve had it for more than eight months now! Still perfect.

How often do you put together a new set-up?

I try not to do that very often! I usually paint my bike, I get tired of colours fast, that’s why and how I’m trying to switch it up a bit! I feel like when you change parts a lot it’s harder to get used to your bike again if the parts aren’t the same a you rode before…

How good are you at keeping the thing dialled?

It’s mostly pretty dialed, but there also days when the bike just gets tired, would say mostly on trips. If you’re on the road all the time, it’s just the way it is!
