Bike check Q & A – Kyle Ralston
Kyle stopped by the shop last week and grabbed a few things to freshen up his bike. It was looking good so we snapped some pics and then Zen went with Kyle down to Munchies and snapped a few riding pics, enjoy!

Your bike has a Midschool vibe even though you aren’t old enough to have experienced that era of BMX, whats up with that? I like the videos and riders from that time, the bikes look sick!
Oldest part? Probably the pegs, Maybe a year and a half, but I got em second hand anyway.
Newest part? Cranks, Sprocket, Tyres all brand new today.
How long do you run parts for usually? Normally until they break.
What parts do you go through the fastest? Tyres, Grips and pedals. I like new grippy tyres. I hate it when they are old and slippery, like when you are rolling around a bowl and worried about slipping out and dying.
Bank hip whip.
What about you most particular about with your bike? Almost everything, I care about what brands parts I ride and how they feel. I like everything to be exactly how I want it, every little bit matters.
Tyre Pressure? Like 50.
