What custom mods have you made to your bike?
No custom mods, fresh out the box and good to go!
What’s the newest part on your bike?
The Awake frame and Sterling forks…
What’s the oldest part on your bike – any part you just won’t change?
The stem I have I’ve had for a lonnnnng time! I used to go through stems for some reason, but this one has lasted really well so I’ve stuck with it!
How often do you put together a new set-up?
When I need to, about seven months I think, but that’s normally because it’s all scratched up and rugged – not due to being broken.
How good are you at keeping the thing dialled?
I’d say I’m quite on top of it, I hate riding a shitty feeling bike so everything needs to be tight and smooth!
What else is new – what are you planning next?
I have a fairly busy schedule that’s coming up which I’m excited about! I go to Krakow, not a BMX trip, then get back for a day before travelling to Scotland to shoot some things and party then I am currently working out a trip for an up and coming Endless mag feature and after that ill be going to Barcelona again, then it’ll be a case of anything in between I can go on I’ll go!

For more about Jason, here’s an interview we did with him about riding, team trips, BMX photography and Endless Magazine, here.
