1. What modifications have you made to your bike?
Nothing special to be honest. Just tried to keep it light and as strong as possible. So far, I've never really broken anything on there during comps or other riding.
2. Which is your favorite bike compontent on the bike and why?
Surely the carbon Truvativ X0 cranks. They are so light but strong as hell.
3. Is there anything about your set up?
Hmm nothing really weird on, hehe.
