Arthur Pilard: Yes, when you ride with PRIDE carbon wheels the disc is essential, I didn't find any difference with a V-Brake, you just have to choose your brake.
Do you like bike maintenance including the cleaning?
Arthur Pilard: No, it's absolutely not my strong point but with time we progress, we discover new methods and if I can't, I ask my friends from SQY to help me, especially Simba hahah.
What's the bike part that you change most often?
Arthur Pilard: My gear ratio, I change it a lot depending on the tracks.If I don't feel good on a track, I'll do everything I can to find the ideal gear ratio. I sometimes change between two days of racing or even between two laps in the day.
You've got five minutes to put your bike in the bag to fly to the next race. Could you do it?
Arthur Pilard: Yes, easy hahah.
When something is loose on your bike, do you fix it straight away?
Arthur Pilard: Yes, when something moves on my bike I feel it directly. I don't take any risks and I try to ride as safe as possible.
