I first met Vasya Lukyanenko about a year and a half ago, while on a trip with Carhartt to Essen, Germany for the Apartment project. Vasya is a very chill guy, but when it comes to riding bikes, he kills pretty much every single spot, or just every obstacle you place in front of him. If you scroll down (or just click here) you will also see that Vasya likes riding wild and not meant-to-be-ridable setups. Now click read more and read this quick interview Vasya did for us.
