My question is did you ever ride pegs or ever think of riding pegs? I understand there is no real reason to have them on the dew tour but say when you are out riding street you ever feel like hitting up a rail?
When I was younger I had pegs maybe for a week or two, I was never into it and also when ever I did a grind it would break my bike and I was working when I was younger so it wasnt worth grinding breaking a bike part then costing a ton to buy like an axle or something... when I ride street my fav thing to do is just backwards manuels and halfcabs, never really into grinding.

I rode with you at Woodward early last summer. I had purple bars and forks and no brakes. I was trying to learn 3s, and you helped me by telling me to alley-oop a bit at the top. I haven't tried one in a while, but that tip really helped, and I can get pretty close on them. To be honest, I was pretty embarassed beacuse I was killing myself trying to land a 3 in front of someone like you, hahaha.

My question is, out of everything you can do, which was the hardest to learn. Oh, and what does it feel like when you're doing a 1080?

I Would say a good way to learn 3s is do a bunch of 180s like a ton of them and try to pop them as high as you can, then you dont even try to spin you just try to bunnyhop higher then from there just go like your gonna so a 180 but then spin harder thats what i did. hope that makes since
