If there’s one thing we know about Sean Ricany, it’s that he likes to keep his bike as dialed as his riding. Recently, Sean built up an all new Premium CK setup and the bike turned out so good there was no way we couldn’t get a bike check with him!

You’ve been a freecoaster for a while now, how do you like it?
I love it, everyone’s main concern is usually the slack but once you get used to it I almost think it makes you ride and feel smoother because you don’t catch yourself “Bitch cranking”, haha. Freecoasters open up so much more you can do on your bike, I can seriously go out front of my house and ride for an hour just rolling around with it having so much fun.
Do you typically work on your own bike or have a shop do it for you?
Um, when I’m fixing something basic I usually do it myself, but when it comes to building wheels and a whole new bike I usually head to Belmar bike shop.
Do you run Plastic pegs all the time or just put them on when you feel they are needed?
For a while I was running metal pegs and carrying plastics around but recently put plastics on full time and I’m pretty sure they will be staying on.
You were recently out at Texas toast, how was that?
Texas toast was awesome; I hurt my knee a bit on my first trick so I ended up not really riding the contest. I’ve never been to Texas before so I kinda didn’t know what to expect, I’ve also never been to a Nora Cup and I must say that was the highlight of my weekend. So sick to get to hangout with everyone.
Is there any more traveling on your schedule for the rest of 2013?
I’m headed out to Cali to escape the cold east coast weather that’s for sure.
Any last words?
Thanks to everyone that keeps me rolling.
