Q&A with Louis Otto
– Tell us about this bike. What are you most stoked on?
I’m stoked on the whole thing, always sorting me out with a solid bike. Massive fan of the frame graphics and the short back end makes it perfect.
– Is it all fresh or are there some older bits on here?
All fresh except the seat because I was a big fan of the graphics and it lasts a long time.
– How old is this bike now?
The whole bike’s about 2 months old now, still a solid build.
– Where have you been riding on it so far?
So far… Been to a lot of London, Paris, Dusseldorf and Cologne on the bike, and I’m in Barca with it now!
– What’s been your fav spot to ride on this bike?
This bike’s been killing it off some big drops so far, holding up solid, but still perfect for a lot of transition, I’ve been loving riding the transition street spots in Dusseldorf.
– Where else are you going on your trip?
I’m off to Barcelona for a month, then couple weeks in Valencia, week in Lisbon, then hoping to finish back in France for some other cities.
– Any shoutouts?
Major shoutout to Shadow and Subrosa giving me the best parts, all coming from the hands of Seventies, keeping me riding.
