Do you know the geometry and length of your frame?
Mitchel Schotman: It’s a Meybo XXXL (22,5) frame. The top tube length is 22,44” and the chainstay length is 15,47”.
Do you experiment much with sizes of your frame, stem, bars to find the right set-up?
Mitchel Schotman: No not that much. I think I ride for almost 2 years with this set-up. The only thing we change is like the chainrings for some sessions.
Do you have something customized to make your bike more personal and perfect for you?
Mitchel Schotman: The only thing people can't buy is the stem. It's a special made stem for the team. So yeah that's a customized thing. The rest of my bike is all "standard" and everyone can buy it.
Do you have a spare bike for the rainy training sessions?
Mitchel Schotman: Yes I have an extra Meybo bike. My old one from season 2018
How much do you think your bike is worth the way it's set up?
Mitchel Schotman: Well, I checked the webshop of bmx24seven and came out of +/- €3000,-
When's your next race going to be?
Mitchel Schotman: My next race will be the Dutch national championship. And maybe the European Championships if they find an organizer.
