This weeks Bike Check Wednesday features Hoffman Team rider Jeremy Hrabal. Jeremy Hrabal is known for having a “hit it with all you got” riding attitude. Late 2014 Jeremy Hrabal found himself back on the operating table to fix a bad knee. With is recovery almost over we decided to catch up with him, check out his new ride and what he has been doing since his surgery, enjoy!
What is the one part you find yourself having to replace on a regular basis? And why?
I don’t really find myself breaking any parts, but I guess the one thing that I seem to replace on a regular basis is grips. Probably just because I like to grip the shit out of my bars and hold on tight!
What part do you spend the most time on to make sure it’s dialed in?
Always gotta keep the brakes dialed, that and keeping my wheels tru.
How would you describe your riding style?
It honestly changes every year depending on how my body is feeling. I enjoy riding street and trails, anything I can really send myself on. I’m by no means a technical rider, I really just stay to my roots. When I first started riding it wasn’t about being a street rider, or a trail rider, or park rat. Just ride what you can, and have fun doing it. So that’s what I try to do.
Your currently recovery from knee surgery? What have you been doing to keep yourself motivated?
I’ve actually just been playing a lot of music. We’ve been recording a full length album for the last six months so that really has made the healing process go by a little quicker. I’ve also just been working a ton.
Your in a band called DSGNS. How long have you been in DSGNS and what instrument do you play.
We’ve been a band for about 4 years now, I was in a previous band with one of the guitar players and we just kind of progressed into what DSGNS is now. And I play bass
