What custom mods have you made to your bike?
Apart from taking the pins out of one side of my pedals, I can’t say I have done any modifications to my bike.

What’s the newest part on your bike?
Just about to head out to pick up some new handlebars from The Boarding House, which have been sent out from CSG. Thanks Mark.

What’s the oldest part on your bike – any part you just won’t change?
Probably my back wheel – that’s been going strong for a good year or so now.

How often do you put together a new set-up?
Maybe once or twice a year, depending on what’s worn out or what parts need replacing.

How good are you at keeping the thing dialled?
I try to keep on top of the maintenance, I’d like to say at least once a week I’ll be tightening or adjusting something.

What else is new – what are you planning next?
I’ve just gotten back from a trip to Barcelona, so hopefully along with a few other clips I’ll have a web edit out in the following months. Thinking about doing a trip to somewhere a little warmer over the winter months, but nothing for definite just yet!
