Q&A with Jakub K
– How long have you had this set up?
I’ve had a Doomsayer for about a year now, the rest of the parts I’ve been riding for about 4 months.
– What’s your favourite part about it?
My favourite part on this set up is the pedals because they go all the way to the crank arm, feels perfect to me.
– Any plans to change it up?
Yeah I’m going to be changing almost all the parts, haha, just waiting on stock at the moment. I’ll be mixing it up next time though with 4 piece bars and a front load stem… I’m just into how it looks.
– Why plastics and not metal pegs?
I’ve always rode plastic pegs, most people seem to like the noise of metals but i just find it distracting.

– Have you modified your bike in any way?
I haven’t modified much, recently I’ve just been putting parts on as they come. I always mark a grind side on my pedals with a paint pen.
– Will you ever not run a coaster?
I’ve been riding a coaster almost the whole time I’ve ridden BMX but I do want to change it up fairly soon to a cassette.
– Any events upcoming?
Next event is NASS for me, first time going should be hectic!
