We are back again with another Bike Check Wednesday. This weeks Hoffman rider and Birthday Boy Dylan Sparkman. Mid Last year Dylan suffered a major injury that keep him off his bike for over 6 months, with him fresh back on his bike we figured what better way to celebrate is Birthday. Enjoy this weeks Bike Check Wednesday with Dylan Sparkeman.
What is the one part you find yourself having to replace on a regular basis? And why?
Grips or tires always mobbin thro the cities and holdin on tight.
What part do you spend the most time on to make sure it’s dialed in?
Keepin that chain tight from all the peg slappin haha.
Goodsbmx bike shop and Shad your thoughts.
Shad is a badass been supporting him for years, go check em out if your ever in the area.
You pretty much call Portland, Oregon home. Who do you ride with and what bike shop would you call home?
yea moved up here about 2 yrs ago it’s been good kinda hard at first. Adjusting 2 the weather coming from the bay always having nice weather. For the most part PDX had a lot of rain, but it’s good heavy scene up here just not a lot of coverage so ppl stay on the under. Always down 2 cruise with whoever is riding everyone’s got mixed schedules
Last year you were faced with a brutal injury. what happen and how log where you off your bike?
yea was just messing around ice picking down this rail and planted my foot funny laid there just thinking I twisted it good till I looked at my leg was all off 2 the side mangled looking… I exploded my leg from what the doc told me. haha.. It was crazy, didn’t think it was as bad since I never ever had broken anything before (except for a few bones in my face ha). I snapped my tibia and fibula in a few spots ended up having getting 2 plates 13 screws and 6 months later I’m cruising again couldn’t be happier and more motivated than ever. Huge shout out 2 everyone who was there when I was down means the world 2015 DODAMOS
