What are you really picky about with your bike setup? I like a high bb and short frame with good stand-over height! It makes the bike fast to pump but easy to spin and trick.

Describe your current suspension setup.

On my hardtail, I have it setup really stiff. I'm generally riding smooth jumps and a bit of skate park as we get into winter.

Do you like to alter your setup a lot or do you "set it and forget it?"

I set it up and forget it lol. I put a lot of thought into what will feel best but when I'm having a fun session, so i notice nothing.
