Paul tells us why he rides what he rides…
I like to have a bike that can cope anywhere. I like to ride things are really difficult and challenging. Not just in flatland, but any terrain that I come across in the concrete jungle of Sydney. I really dig the original G-Sport hub guards because they’re the lightest and the longest lasting and still the only hub guard that actually protects your spokes as well.

I have a brakeless setup as it helps my tricks flow better and gives my bike a nice feeling of simplicity. I rode a lot of street and park before flatland so I like my bike to reflect what I see as BMX. Nostalgia is also an important reason, hence why I run two-piece bars. So in a lot of ways my bike reflects where I can from, even if these things hinder my progression as a flatlander.

I rode from December 2010 to until June 2011 I only used 2 street pegs on one side and now I’ve gone to 3 pegs but find I’m still using the same mental approach. I have to think a lot more creatively about how I do my tricks. I really want to do a lot more flatland style tricks that I can use on street or at skateparks.

I’ve gone back to metal pedals because they feel really solid and they last for ages. My bike isn’t the lightest out there for these reasons, but from my experience of breaking plastic pedals in the past, I’d rather have the durability that metal offers.

I run a 110 psi in big tyres. When I run skinnier tyres, I usually run about 120psi. I also like a long stem because I find it easier to do nose manuals and combined with full offset forks I find there is a lot of difference when the bars are crossed which I find is really interesting.

My bike has a lot of really old parts on it and I really like that. My Tuffneck cranks I’ve since about 2008 and I’m stoked that they’ve lasted this long. I’ve also had my Redneck stem since about 2007 and it’s not going anywhere either.
