Came back with my old 2011 Majesty Park frame this year, best frame I've ever had so I had to get my hands back on it, I now ride a big Fox Float 36 up front too!
Why do you ride that particular frame?
I ride the Majesty Park for many reasons, I personally think it's the best Park/Street frame you can get. It's the lightest frame around, it's really strong, mine is a 2011 and still going strong! it's so easy to move around and to spin and hop! It's the perfect frame for me.
Your impressions on your new ride?
It's seriously just perfect, makes riding so easy and enjoyable!
Concerned about your bike weight? You know how much it weighs?
OF COURSE I AM. My bike currently sits at 24.8lbs, a while back it was 22.3lbs so you can say I'm a weight weenie.
We all know Canada doesn't see the best weather this time of year... How have you been passing the winter months? Where have you been getting most of your sessions in?
Yeah this winter has been brutal so I had to escape and get to Montreal for a week to ride Le Taz indoor park with other Lama buddies!! Other than that I still have to wait for Summer to arrive if I wanna ride my bike.
What are your plans once the weather warms up? Any trips you're trying to make happen?
So many plans for this riding season, Highland, Montreal, BC trip, Halifax trip! gonna be insane!
How can people keep up with you these days?
