Bar position, PSI, chain tension, etc… How do you prefer to have your bike setup?
My bars position is always straight. Chain at the intermediate point of tense and loose.
Is there anything specific about how your bike is setup to help with nosemanuals?Not really, but I guess the combination of my bars with my stem and ring, are pretty comfortable for me.
What is your favorite Fly Bikes part?
I guess my frame, because it is the most important part of my bike.
Tell us about your signature Savanna frame…
My Savanna frame basically is a normal BMX frame, but my favorite parts are the top tube, which is 21’’ (I’m currently using) but also you can get it in 20.7”, head tube is 75.5°, seat tube—super important part—which is 71 °, and the most important part for me is the rear end, which is 13”—it’s the perfect size for me.
The pattern on your signature seat looks awesome. How did that pattern come about?
I wanted to do something similar to the logo and Noe (the graphic designer of Flybikes) helped me create similar drawings. I really love the result, apart from how wide and comfortable it is.
How often do you build up a new bike? Do you ever swap
out parts as needed, or usually just build up a fresh new ride top to bottom?
I don’t usually build fresh new bike, because new bikes always feel weird the first days until you get used to them. Even when they are the same measures…. I really prefer changing parts as much needed.
Do you like to try out new/different parts, or do you
prefer to stick to what you know?
I prefer to use what I already know, but I think it’s necessary to try new stuff. Because a small or a big change, could influence and improve your riding.
