Colt is currently working on a Sturdy Wrists to be featured in a future issue of Dig. As you can see from this sequence and his Banned video parts, it won’t be a let down.
I grinded the dropouts in to make it 13.75 and gummy guys strapped in.
Describe your personal bike setup:
Gotta be tight but not too tight. Some broken in looseness is good. Light, but sturdy where it needs to be so no need to worry about gettin’ hurt from failed bike parts. Gots to have fun decorations ‘n’ shit.
Describe the contents of your personal bike tool bag.
Don’t have one. Not even at home, I lose all my tools.
What part do you wear through the quickest?
Brake cables are always gettin’ kinked on me, spokes ‘n’ rims, then spindles.
Do you patch flat tyres or get new tubes?
Which parts are you paranoid about breaking?
Crank arms because I seen it happen to friends doing big things and looks like it hurts a lot. I’m fairly light ‘n’ small so im not that worried about it
Where do your parts go when you’re done with them?
Garage or garbage.
Who builds your wheels? Anything special about them?
James Covington at Mesh Skatepark is real good at building wheels.
Cassette or freecoaster?
Cassette, I don’t like to play.
Kevlar bead or regular bead?
Regular. Kevlar blows out.
Plastic pedals or metal?
Metal grips last way long. I did make metal pins for plastic pedals once but they’re gay.
What’s your relationship with the lion king?
I look like moofassa and I like to moovefasta? It’s why you guys started calling me that, haha.
