I wanted to share an inside look of my race bike for the year.
Cranks – Box Two M30-P
- Size – 175mm
- Color – Black
I have been running Box cranks on my bike since 2017. I enjoy the simple design and sleek look. These cranks have a matte
black finish that wears well over time.Additionally these cranks have a single side load on the non drive side which offer a
great minimalist look. Although these cranks do not have pinch bolts on the non drive crank arm, I do not have to retighten the
side bolt which is a major plus.
Frame – CITIZEN CARBON FRAME
- Color – Carbon Blue
- Size – 21″ Toptube
After 17 BMX season and countless frames over the years this is first I have owned a carbon frame. I have been on the bike for
afew weeks and have been adjusting well. In the opinion the main difference between alloy frames is the black and white
balance point when manualing. I find myself needing to more precise with longer manuals. The rear end is just as stiff as
other alloy frames which is a plus. I am excited to see how the carbon frame develops over the year.
Handlebars – ELEVN FLAT 22.2 BAR
- Color – Black/ Neon
- Size – 7.5″
I have made the switch back to 22.2mm clamp size handlebars. I have typically ran an 8″ inch handlebar, but decided to test a
lower bar to help my gates and sprint position down the first straight. So far, I have been loving the 7.5″ bars compared to the
8″ inch bars. These bars also come in a narrow width of 27″ in. I normally have to trim my bars down to this width, but I was
able to slap them on the bike without have to pull out the metal saw.
- Color – YOSHIKOTE/ Blue
I was introduced to these pedals last year by a friend and he went on to rave about how they were his favorite pedal of all time.
Although these come with a high end price tag they truly outperform other flat pedals. The face of the pedal has a concave from
the interior and exterior edge to better accommodate your foot. This concave adds a considerable degree of foundation
between you and bike. The blue pins add a additional degree of “glue” to the pedals giving me confidence to push 110%.
