Are you picky on bike parts, geometry, handling, tire pressure?
Eddy Clerté: I get used to any bike pretty quickly but I really like details like " straight bars 3 degree backsweep, 60mm stem, 177,5 crank, running the tire pressure as much as I can, special Izumi chain"
Do you have a second bike set-up as a back-up or to go to the trails with?
Eddy Clerté: I do have 3 bikes but they're the same settings, I love to go to the trails with carbon rims lol
How important is bike weight to you?
Eddy Clerté: I never weigh my bikes because I don't really feel like I have to do it. It's not like I could make a huge difference trying to make everything lighter...
Do you like bike maintenance including the cleaning?
Eddy Clerté: I love to clean my bike and listen to some good tunes at the same time, definitely taking care of my most recent bikes and kinda let go the old ones.
What bike part do you change the most?
Eddy Clerté: Bars and tires. I like to not ride over 4 months with the same bars just because it mostly gets rusty from the inside and it's not as strong as when it's not, and for the tires, I just like to have my tires black and brand new.
Best bike maintenance advice your dad has given you?
Eddy Clerté: He showed me how to take out tires without tools, really helpful and a lot faster!
