FATBMX: Any specific reason for the low frame?
Irek Rizaev: At the first it’s not that low nowadays, it’s pretty usual height ; ). And for sure for any kind of whips. Because it’s easier to do it, as you don’t have to pull up the legs too high.
FATBMX: Do you ever miss having a brake?
Irek Rizaev: Maybe only for some fun stuff like a fufanu. And I really want to try front brakes, I think it's so fun!
FATBMX: How hard is it to get good BMX Freestyle products in Russia?
Irek Rizaev: I think it’s the same problem like everywhere, nothing special. The most important thing is to understand what you're doing and love it. I’m so into it and really enjoying it!
FATBMX: What parts do you go through the quickest?
Irek Rizaev: Grips and tires every 1-2 months.
FATBMX: What tire pressure do you run?
Irek Rizaev: Tryin' to keep it on 85-90 psi
FATBMX: Where can people find more information on RedBMX?
Irek Rizaev: On the redbmxco.com website. And instagram @redbmxco
