Back again with another great Bike Check Wednesday with Trent McDaniel. It has been a long hard winter this year for many of us. Trent lives in Chicago and with the frigid temperatures and massive amounts of snow have kept Trent’s riding to a minimum. Between snow storms and slightly warmer temperatures Trent has been able to hook up with locals like Brian Kachinsky and photographer Timothy Burkhart to grab some video and photos. Between filming and photo shots we asked Trent several questions and garbed a bike check. enjoy
What is the one part you find yourself having to replace on a regular basis? And why? Tires for sure. Fresh set of tires always makes the whip feel dialed.
What part do you spend the most time on to make sure it’s dialed in? Probably my chain tension. Lots of grinding.
This has been a hard winter, how have you been able to keep yourself motivated? Not being able to ride actually motivates me than most things do. Not being able to ride or cruise drives me insane. Lots of spot searching.
If your bike could talk what would it say to you? Keep shreddin!
