Built to resist the elements...

What parts do you trash the most? I’m wearing through grips a lot and I’ve already broke a few crank sets whilst riding.

Who supports you? Dartmoor Bikes.

Any modifications, etc? Yeah. I’m a fan of  cutting-down, so I always cut hub’s axles and nuts and I also the bars, seat-post the fork’s steerer tube and grip flanges. Except for those I’ve got a nice upper cable modification installed for the gyro. It’s greatly improved (less resistant) than the regular gyro cables…

Are you very selective on how rolls? I think the answer is preety much yes – I hate to have anything loose when riding, everything must be properly tightened.

Check the t.t height in relation to Maciej's knee!
