If you were to give advice to someone what would be your best advice to give?

When it comes to fear how do YOU cope with it? How would you tell someone else to cope with fear?

Anything philosophical you'd like to say?

Anything you'd like to mention to any of us? =)

Are you happy with your life? (I know people define success as being wealthy but to each his own. Success is what one believes it to be)

Would you still be riding bmx if you hadn't made it "pro"?

Srry for all the personal questions.... well who am I kidding I wouldn't be asking them If I were truly sorry =) You don't have to answer them though. Thanks for your input and taking the time to answer some questions.

How do you feel about bike weight, do you like your shit on the lighter side or prefer a beefy setup?
Do you ever lift weights specifically for bmx or do you get your workout mostly from riding?
How tall are you and how do top tube sizes affect your particular riding style?
What's your take on 48h wheels? Ever bust enough rims to the point of considering a 48?

FREE not under the control or in the power of another; able to act or be done as one wishes
STYLE a particular, distinctive, or characteristic mode of action or manner of acting

I think female riders are rad we need more females in bmx! The parts I break the most would be axles ! I think all riders are dope heavy set or skinny as long as there having fun. When I ride I try to have the most fun with it usually if its scary I wouldn't really mess with certain tricks or setups . Girls usually find the pro bmxer pick up lines corny haha!

I like my bikes to feel solid at least 26 lbs ,I don't really lift weights grinding some rails and ledges is a good upper body workout! I use any 20" inch tube there all the same. 48 wheels are cool whatever your into !

When I first started riding 4 pegs I had to get used to my back foot hitting the back peg but after a week of trying different grinds I became more natural !

My fav trick would be barspins you could do them in combos,grinds,or bunnyhop cruising around! My least favorite trick would be back flips I'm not very comfortable upside down.its a bummer what happened to Brett it's always hard to see fellow riders take bad falls ! My fav colony part would be the Teddy v2 frame and odi longneck grips would be my fav part that's not colony!
