helped me assemble the bike.
Can you explain why you ride the size frame that you ride and why you like the geometry of the frame?
George Davoutian: I use this frame because it's perfect for street riding with that 13” rear end, the standover is not too high like other street frames which feels like riding a park frame and the overall setup is very stable for high speed and jumps. I would say it is an all around frame. I use a 20.75 size since I'm not the tallest guy out there (174cm) and it fits me well!
Are the right tires important to you? What's the size and what's the pressure you put into the tires?
George Davoutian: I don't really mind having the right tires on but most of the time I use 2.40size or sometimes 2.35. I prefer 2.40 because of how they look and feel. I'm sure that thinner tires makes you go faster but big ones hold well on gaps or mistakes.
What is your favourite BMX shop?
George Davoutian: My favorite shop in my country is Rideon Bike shop. They support me since I started riding.
You have done some amazing BMX moves, how did it feel to complete the full pipe rotation?
George Davoutian: Unreal, it’s very similar to the open loop I have at home so I'm used to that flip but the feeling of my wheels riding all around was mind blowing. Definitely gonna do more full loops in the future!
Do you like to give product feedback to your sponsors?
George Davoutian: I haven’t done that yet but I would love to give a feedback! I believe that riders and companies should have that kind of relationship.
Happy 2023. What are your plans for this year?
George Davoutian: Going to San Diego California is my main plan, therefore travel as much as possible, Film project for Redbull. Ride as many contests as possible.
