When did you build this bike up?

About a month ago.

What version of the Fuego frame is this?

I think we are on the version five or six. 

I’m at the point where we haven’t been changing much with it the past couple of years because I’m loving the current geometry.

Tell us about that new seat...

Still a tripod seat, but with slightly different materials. It's a bit grippier and also a lot softer than the previous ones.

How often do you build up a new bike?

Not too often. Maybe once a year? I like riding the same bike and putting some abuse on it to make sure all of the parts are well tested.

How much PSI do you usually ride in your tires?

With the non-folding tires, I was running 15-20psi, but the folding ones have a bit thinner sidewalls so I’ve bumped it up to 30 recently.

Any other special modifications to your bike?

Bars are cut down to 28”, rear tire is on backwards, plus my Gipsy bag - haha. Other than that, it’s all perfect how it comes.

Do you have any other signature parts in the works you can tell us about?

I think we might start working on something new for Eclat. not much info on it yet to give out...

What's the best thing about your bike?

How it feels. This is the best my bike has ever felt. I love the small, compact geometry for my style of riding. I’m very fortunate to have a company like Fly that works with me on making a product perfectly suited for me.
