2014 NS Decade

Why do you ride that particular frame?
Super light, snappy aluminum feel, great geometry for lots of tricks.

Your impressions on your new ride?
Really liking it, super balanced front to back, nice and light, nice stiff front end.

Concerned about your bike weight? You know how much it weighs?
I like to have a lighter set up, around 24 lbs.

We all know Canada doesn’t see the best weather this time of year... How have you been passing the winter months? Where have you been getting most of your sessions in?
I do a lot of snowboarding during the winter, had a great season. Just recently got my bike all built up so I’ve been able to ride a few times at the river jumps here in whistler.

What are your plans once the weather warms up? Any trips you’re trying to make happen?
Whistler bike park is opening soon so stoked for that, and the Airdome is set open soon here as well. Hopefully make it out to Silver star for the Freeride festival, and Fernie for Wam Bam Dirt Jam.

Do you have any shout outs or thanks?
Thanks Jonah at Icycle for building my bike up perfect and everything over the years. Thanks again the guys at Lama Cycles for this opportunity and to be able to ride the sickest dirt jump bike. Shout out to both my parents for supporting me in this ridiculous sport.

 I've got the same frame and bought the same headset for tapered forks and did you come across the problem that the bottom cup didn't fit fully into the frame meaning you would need a spacer and if so what did you use as a spacer? cheers
