Do you experiment much with geometry/size of your frame, stem, bars?
Niek Kimmann: I’ve done that in the past. I found something that works for me now, so I pretty much keep it the same all the time. My frame was custom made for me in 2015. After I liked it more people started to ride it, and nowadays the xxxxl is available for everyone!
Do you have something customized to make your bike more personal and perfect for you?
Niek Kimmann: No custom parts at the moment. Everything I’m riding with is available in most BMX shops.
Did you get to pick the colour of your frame and the parts?
Niek Kimmann: I’m riding for the National Team, so I’m riding with the colors of the team.
