Why did you change back from a 21" TT to a shorter frame?
Kevin: I had 20,8 for a while and then a 21tt when I got on Subrosa but I changed it because I was having pain in my back with the longer tt... Especially while riding street so I just went back to 20,8 and it's much better. I love it like that.
Does the bike work for all riding you do?
Kevin: Yeah I think so with the 20,8. I was having trouble riding street with the 21. 20,8 makes it perfect for everything... Bowls, trails, street, park!
What bike part has been on your bike the longest?
Kevin: All my sponsors, Andy at Vans, Raph and Tom at Monster, all the crew at Shadow and Subrosa, The twins at Sparkys France, Pure Bmx shop, The roster, Alex V at MJ.
