How much does a new bike motivate you at the start of each season?
Joshua McLean: A new bike is always good but I wouldn’t use the word motivate. It makes me excited, like when little Johnny gets a new toy for his birthday.
Do you have a spare bike as a back up?
Joshua McLean: I don’t have a spare bike but planning on getting one when I’m back in the States.
Who are some of the people who hook you up with parts when you need them?
Joshua McLean: Full Tilt pro shop do.
Are you on the disc brake yet?
Joshua McLean: I am not.
What are your thoughts on carbon?
Joshua McLean: I’m not a big fan of carbon, just because a few years ago I got injured from a set of forks snapping. I’m not against it either as, I should’ve replaced them a few months beforehand.
Who do you trust working on your bike to get it ready for the race?
Joshua McLean: I’ve never had anyone work on my bike besides my dad when I was younger. Then I got older and started to do it myself.
