Congrats on the new signature frame! What were some key features you looked for when designing it?
Thanks man, I can’t believe I actually have a Haro frame with my name on it. That’s a perfect example of somebody’s dreams becoming a reality. Basically I wanted to make it really clean looking. You’ll notice the headtube, top and down tubes all flow together really well. No edges. I also shortened the back end just a tad to 13.5 and tall 9″ standover. I’m loving it!

How long have you been testing it, and how’s it been holding up.
I’m on my second prototype now and it’s feeling amazing. I think the sizing fits somebody my height perfectly.

You pretty much always run a solid black kit. We gonna see your frame come in different colors and see you rocking a new colorway soon?
Originally we were gonna do another color but it’s just gonna be black for the first run. I’d love to do a raw frame next. I’m just not much of a color guy haha.

We all know you ride like it’s your last days on earth, what would you say is the part that you change out the most and why?
Thanks for that. It makes me happy people realize that’s my mentality hahaha. Just trying to have the most fun. I would say I go through pedals and tires the most. I just really like them feeling grippy haha.

With that said, what part on your bike lasts the longest for you?
I’m not just saying this because they are my signature parts but I honestly feel like I NEVER need to change my bars or stem. They are just holding so well.

Your Demolition Paradise line has been going good, you have any new ideas or new products you’d want to do next?
I was thinking of a sprocket but since Demolition hooked me up with that new prototype guard sprocket I’m pretty stoked on it. I’d love to do another design on my seat eventually!!

You’re now on the Dennis Enarson regimen of eating healthy and hitting the gym, what made you make these changes to your routine?
Basically, my back injury completely changed my life for the better. For how bad it was and how long it took to heal, everything is better. My mentality and and motivation is amazing. Also, thank you Dennis for motivating me everyday. Love ya big bro 🙏🏼

Do you have any other filming projects in the works or that you’d like to start?
As of right now, I just really want to continue focusing on my physical and mental health. I’m gonna start filming when I’m 110% so I can try to produce some fire for everybody haha.

Congrats again on your latest Haro video, it came out seriously amazing.  With all the burly stuff you did in it, do you have a process to get that “scare factor” out of your mind and get what you want to do done?
Thanks brother. I’m happy to get something out, since it’s been so long. I felt like I wasn’t doing my job but injuries happen to everybody. As far as scare factor, I don’t know. I feel like I kind of black out in a way and just have this insane confidence knowing I’m gonna do whatever it is I have in mind. Try not to think so much…
