— What type of setup do you ride now? Have you gone modern or do you still like the classic vert setup?
I used to break bikes constantly back in the day, every week I’d break something. The old school bikes are nice to look at, but I’m all about new technology. I’m building up a Verde Cartel right now which I’m super excited about, but even the stock Verde Spectrum that I’ve been riding is way better that any bike I’ve previously owned.
— What else do you do with your free time?
Mostly just hanging out with my friends, family and pets (we have 2 dogs and 2 cats), playing games, normal stuff. I throw a couple of monthly parties that I also DJ at, plus I play at other peoples events. So, I spend a lot of time collecting and listening to music. I’ve finally gone digital after the last time I had to move all my records!
— Any last words or thanks?
Big thanks to my amazing family, and to all the awesome riders that encouraged and inspired me.
Special thanks to Nick Elkan, Greg Guillotte, Andy Brown, Mike Canning, Jason Ellis, Kevin Martin, Chris Potts, Joe Johnson and Rick Moliterno.
