I modify my brake levers slightlly flat for easy reach in attack position. I also adjust them in towards the center of the bars so my index finger is aligned with the end of the lever. I tilt my seat a little bit forward for days with lots of climbing so when the bike is angled I am sitting on a flat seat. (For more DH oriented days I tilt the seat back a bit so I can slide more easily off the back a bit.) I roll my bars back from the center a few degrees for stability...and also because that's what feels good to me. I never put any stickers on my frames, so they stay looking clean and mean-I clean my bike religiously! I stare at my bikes excessively when I'm not riding and admire their beauty. I sometimes name my bikes when they make a big impression on me. I ride a custom build with my long time sponsors: My forks are SRSuntour Durolux 180mm with a 20mm axle (85psi with 15 to 20% sag) and my rear shock is a SR Suntour Tri-Air 170mm (200psi with 20% sag). I run my fork fairly stiff to eliminate diving in steep terrain. I also typically set my rebound to medium fast but will slow it down for bigger hucks so I don't get bucked.

I am very proud to represent them and they truly do bring the good times!
