– How’s the bike feeling?
“My bike feels damn good. I built this from scratch with all new everything and it’s so solid. This bike feels like its ready to be put through hell haha.”
– How do you personally like it set up?
“Tall and long. When I got my signature colorway in the Kink Titan frame I wanted a bigger size and it was the first time I ever rode a 21.25 and I will definitely never go back down to a shorter toptube.
I also run 9.5 rise bars and a high rise stem to keep it feeling tall so I don’t feel bent over when I’m riding. I’m somewhere between 6’1 and 6’2 so I’m going to do what I can to keep my back from hating me!”
– You were set on the dark trans red frame for a while. How do you like the black and gum now?
“Man I love that dark trans red. I worked closely with the Kink art director to get the exact shade and finish and it was exactly what I wanted.
“Being stoked on the look of my bike is really
motivating to go ride every day.”
I really went back to black because they sold out of the trans red! But changing it up makes me even more stoked on my bike. I’ve never been a huge fan of colored tires for myself but when I saw the Éclat Predator tires came in that sick sand color I knew I wanted a pair.
I’ve only been on this bike for a couple weeks but actually being stoked on the look of my bike is really motivating to go ride every day.”
