I like to hose clamp a chunk of tube around my non drive side crank to keep the cranks from spinning in the air.
Why do you ride that particular frame?
The majesty is simply the sickest steel dirt jump/park frame out there. It's light but also easily the strongest frame I've ever owned. I've ridden it in everything from skate parks to slopestyle courses, the geometry is dialed
Your impressions on your new ride?
Black looks tight
Concerned about your bike weight? You know how much it weighs?
Meh, I've never been one for the lightest bikes, I like to keep them strong. Currently running at about 27 pounds.
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?
I have been trying to stay on my bike as much as possible this winter. There is a ghetto but rad little skatepark setup in an abandoned warehouse where I have been riding a fair bit lately. Recently some big sand hills above the river have become rideable, tons of super steep, tech lines that all lead into a big sand face, super fun on the Soda FR.
What are your plans once the weather warms up? Any trips you're trying to make happen?
Hoping to make some trips to Kamloops BC this spring/summer, so much good riding there its crazy. Going to try to make it to most of the dirt jump/slope contests in BC also, really stoked to go to Silver Style again.
How can people keep up with you these days?
Do you have any shout outs or thanks?
Shout out to my parents for letting me build jumps in their yard and thanks to NS for making the best bikes around!
