"To be honest I have no idea how much my bike weighs. I used to weigh my bike all of the time, but over the past couple of months I've changed out pretty much everything on it. As long as its rolls I'm good to go," says Warden amid practice at Woodward West.
"I have the Maxxis "Grifter" tires on right now, I'm not usually too picky about tires though," says Warden.
"I have a low front end and a weird back end setup. I have a weird bike but I like it. It's pretty much the same setup that I've been riding for about five years now," says Warden.
"I've always been a big fan of the Tree sprockets, they always seem to last. Right now I've got Kink Pillar cranks on. I love the hollow 22mm spindle with the one-piece forged back plate down the crank arm."
"I had a spring break mid-session on my old Fly brakes so I just did an old Andy Chapman trick and used a hair tie to rig them up."
"The Tree hubs are super rad. They last a long time and they always roll smooth. I run the Tree hubs laced up to a G-Sport Birdcage rims."
"I've ridden a Hoffman Bikes stem for a while now. I like the lower front end. I'm also a big fan of the Odyssey "R32" forks."
Just rolling in on the MegaRamp requires complete trust in one's bike. Zack's cassette hub of choice is Tree's direct pull cassette hub.
"I run Fly Ruben metal pedals, which are the best pedal on the market. Nothing else grips as good!"
"I've been running the Tree Branch bars, with Hoffman Bikes grips. I'm also a big fan of Odyssey Trigger brake lever."
