9Q:What were some key features for you when designing your signature frame? And what are the specs?

A:Having ridden so many different frame dimensions over the years I have found what I like best. This frame is a combination of everything I love for a stable, strong and comfortable frame while also integrating some newer features that I have come to enjoy. The back end is the perfect balance between stability and pop. It also has a 75.5 degree headtube, which makes it responsive. The current color I have is a trans copper, which was a gamble, but came out amazing. It ended up being a better color than I imagined. It will also be available in a couple other colors. The 9.06” standover height is also something that feels very comfortable and allows it took and feel the way I wanted.

问:在你的签名款车架生产过程中,你赋予了它一些什么样的特点?车架数据是怎样的?

答:在过去几年里,我已经参与了不少的车架设计;但这一款车架是迄今为止我最满意的。它足够强壮,稳定,并且舒服。这款车架集成了一些我所期望的功能组合,后三角反应灵敏并且平稳。它的头管角度为75.5°,这使得车架的前三角灵活性也相当大。目前这款车架定位的颜色是古铜色,尽管这是一个冒险的决定,但我觉得这是很棒的。至少当我把它拿在手里的时候,我觉得它相当完美。当然,成品上市的时候也会有其他颜色可供选择。车架的座管高度是9.06″,它非常舒服,这一切都是我想要的。2223

Q:When will they be available?
A:I am still testing the prototype to make sure everything is on point, but I’m hoping we can have some production versions later this year. I want to make sure everything is perfect before we release it, but so far so good!

问:这款车架什么时候上市呢?

答:我仍然在测试这款车架,但我希望他能开始量产并在今年晚些时候上市。我必须确保它足够完美,这样才能体现出什么才是我想要的。

Q:And your stem… what are the features on that?
A:The stem is called the “El” which is the nickname for the elevated CTA trains that run through Chicago. This stem is a top load that’s a bit taller than most stems out there so you can run less spacers, but still feel like you aren’t hunched over when you’re riding. We also made the newer prototype a bit wider to provide more clamping space on the bars to avoid slipping. It’s strong, solid and still has a classic top load look. I love it.

问:关于你的签名款把立,有些什么样的特点?

答:这款把立被命名为”EI”,这个灵感是来源于是芝加哥的CTA城际列车的昵称。这款把立的上翘角度相当大,这样可以确保你在完成动作的过程中更为省力;你可以用较小的发力去完成一些大幅度的动作,并且它还可以确保你在骑行的过程中不必驼背。把立的样品设计得比较宽,这使得把立在锁紧过程中能够有更大的空间。我相信这款把立足够强壮和稳定,并且它还有一个非常经典的上盖把立的造型,我非常喜欢。

Q:Your frame comes with integrated chain tensioners, but you aren’t you using them. Why not?
A:I might use the tensioners in the future, but I have never had too much of a problem with my wheel moving so I usually leave them out. I like having the option of them in case other riders prefer tensioners. It’s nice to know that if I have a problem with my wheel slipping I can thread those in to take care of the problem. I’m usually good about keeping my pegs nice and tight to avoid it though.

问:我看到你的车架尾叉上有顶链器,但是你似乎并没有使用它,这是为什么?

答:可能以后我会用到它,但事实上我在骑车的过程中很少遇到后轮移位的情况发生,所在大多数情况下我不太习惯去使用顶链器。但如果在特殊情况下,我的后轮出现移位的情况,我一定会在第一时间解决这个问题,装上顶链器并锁紧后轮组。

Q:How long have you been on the Original 4-piece and what are your thoughts?
A:This is one of the things I’m most excited about on my bike. I made the switch to the GT 4pc in the middle of last year and immediately loved them. I like the look and feel. We have gone through some prototypes to make sure they are perfect before we put them out there, but everyone who has ridden my bike immediately became a fan of them. They will come in two sizes and a couple different colors to suit people’s preferences. These updated versions of the original GT 4 pc bars feel new, but also have that classic nostalgic look. I’m excited for them to be available this year.

问:这款GT的原型四段把你使用了多长时间了?你怎么看待这款经典的车把?

答:这是我对我这台车最满意和最骄傲的一个部分。我从去年年中的时候开始使用这款车把,并且非常适应和喜欢它。我喜欢它的外形和感觉,我把它一直装在我的车上,让每一个骑过我的车的人都能立刻爱上这款车把。这款车把将有两个不同的尺寸和两种颜色,以满足不同车友的喜好。我希望这款四段把的鼻祖能够在新的BMX时代里有一个新的选择给大家新的感受,但又能保有原来的经典造型。这款车把将在今年上市。

Q:You had plastic pegs on when we shot your bike, but do you still travel with an arsenal of eight?

A:Yeah, the mantra of “use the right too for the right job” doesn’t just stop at the work bench. I travel with a set of four plastics and a set of four steel pegs just in case I come across something that might be better for either style of peg. For rough grinds or steel rails I still prefer metal, but obviously plastics are better for riding plaza spots, smooth ledges, aluminum rails, etc. I also always have wax on deck in case that’s needed to get the job done. Carrying that many pegs seems silly, but I just always want to be prepared. It leaves you with no excuses to why you can’t get something done.

问:我看到你车上装着四个塑炮,但按你的描述,你会通常带着8个火箭炮伴随你的旅行?

答:是的,我的口头禅是“用正确的方式完成正确的工作”,我习惯多带四个炮以防万一。我通常会安装四个塑炮,并带着四个钢炮去完成我的旅行。这将有助于我应对不同地形。对于呲一些粗糙的台子我还是更喜欢使用钢炮。如你所知,可能在应对栏杆,或者道具场的时候塑炮的表现会更好,但是我依然还是会更喜欢去感受钢炮带给我的那种更为纯粹的体验。这就是我为什么通常会带着8个火箭炮到处跑的原因,除了以防万一,更多的是为了满足我在面对不同地形时的需要。

Q:What are some preferences for your bike set up? What makes it your ride?
A:I recently have been cutting my bars down to 27” wide. The GT bars come stock at about 29” wide, but I like a smaller width for barspins. I wouldn’t want them much more narrow than 27”, but I think that’s a perfect width for me. They still feel wide enough, but aren’t sluggish when you spin them. I usually run my bars just a tiny bit forward from the fork. Having my forks straight up and down like this allow for an easy pull-up, but also don’t make me feel too cramped.

问:你的车子有些什么特别的偏好和设置吗?

答:我最近一直在调整我的车把宽度,直到我把它切到了27″。GT原型四段把的宽度是29″,但我习惯让它窄一点,这将有助于我轻松的完成转把之类的动作。我不希望他们比27″更窄,我认为现在的宽度是非常适合我的。尽管大多数人觉得车把太窄看起来怪怪的,但是我觉得这种感觉刚刚好,让我的车把略微前倾,与前叉尽可能保持平行的角度我认为使用起来会更舒服。

Q:What parts do you change out the most often and why?
A:I change grips quite often and peg sleeves on plastic pegs. I grind a lot so having a couple extra plastic sleeves along with me helps a lot. Plastic hub guards need changing sometimes, but I usually ride those until the very end of their life. Tires and tubes are also things that wear out from time to time, but that just depends on luck usually. I do rotate my tires before replacing them since my back tire always wears out before my front does. Rotating them helps them wear correctly but saves me from having to get a new set.

问:你车上的什么零件更换得最勤?为什么?

答:通常情况下,我最常更换的配件是把套和塑炮的修补壳。我做滑竿的动作很多,所以一对额外的塑炮修补壳对我来说是相当重要和有帮助的。塑料花鼓盖我也常换,但大多数时候我会把他们用到不能再用位置。车胎和内胎也是常换的零件之一。但大多数时候这两个零件的更换频率是要看运气的。我常常会把我的前轮换到后轮去继续使用,这样可以有助于减少磨合时间,并且节约一些零件成本。

Q:What are you most particular about on your bike?
A:You know that sound a basketball makes when you bounce it on the ground? I like my bike to make the same sound. I love when everything is tight, quiet and no rattling. This means I keep everything pretty tight including my chain, headset, spokes, etc. I don’t do many crankflips these days, but if I start to do those again I might have to loosen up my chain, but for now I like it snug. I also like everything on my bike to be a 6mm Allen key or 17mm socket. I can fix almost everything on my bike with minimal tools and I love that simplicity.
I’m also particular about shoes I ride in. I like Vans TNT, Crocketts, Old Skools, Chukka Mids, Half Cabs and any other Vans shoe that’s grippy and has protection while also being able to feel your pedal. The waffle sole and the pedal pins go together like PB&J.

Last but not lease I like to be the only one who works on my bike. After many years of working at a bike shop and working on my own bikes I just know how I like everything to run. I keep it clean, tight and ready for the inevitable abuse I’m going to put it through.

问:关于你的车子,哪些方面是你个人最为讲究的?

答:你知道篮球拍在地上的那种清脆的声音吗?我喜欢我的车子能够一直保持在那样的状态,没有其他任何的杂音。我习惯把每一颗螺钉拧紧,比如链条,辐条,以及其他的部件。我最近不怎么做Crankflip之类的动作,但一旦我重新开始去做这些,我会去调整我的链条的松紧程度。我现在的车子保持着我认为舒服的状态。我习惯用一套6MM内六角和一支17MM套筒去搞定我的车子,让我能随时随地的去调整和维修它。

除此之外,我也很在意我的车鞋。我喜欢Vans的TNT, Crocketts, Old Schools, Chukka Mids, Half Cabs以及所有一切Vans的系列。它们可以让你清晰地感受你的脚踏,给你带来更为直观的触感。华夫底和脚踏接触的感觉才是最美妙的。

最后我想说的是,骑车这么多年来,我最大的习惯就是保持我的车子尽可能的干净整洁,让它一直保持在最佳状态。
