What’s different since your last bike check? New back pegs, tires, pedals, hub guard and seat; that’s it.
What prototype action are you running? My frame is the same prototype that I’ve been running for a few years. No dents, it’s solid.
Why a 20.75” top tube? Because there were a bunch of frames sitting there, I grabbed one and tried to eye up which size was larger; it didn’t work.
Favorite part: Frame, because it’s my frame.
Newest part: I got two new back pegs and two new tires.
Last time your bike saw the rain: It sees it every time it does rain; it sits in the backyard. My girlfriend bitches about it being in the kitchen and I’m too lazy to bring it in the basement.
Last time your pegs experienced a grind: Every time I go out. 90% of the time I’m grinding something.
Last time you cleaned your bike: Never. Some kid on my block asked me if he could clean it, and I said hell no. Keep it dirty; I want it to look like a shit-box.
Farthest place this bike has been to: Japan.
Best spot this bike has been ridden on? This bank spot in Tokyo. It’s so unique.
Most notorious scratch/ dent? I’ve had a horrible flat spot in my back wheel for three years. Most people would get a back wheel, but it doesn’t affect me since I can’t manual.
Tom filmed his whole part in QSS 5 on this bike. New joints from Tom coming soon in QSS 6…
