What did you have to readjust after the first session?
Arjan Ellens: Maityn from BMX Amsterdam knows what I like, so absolutely nothing!
What did you change compared to your previous set-up?
Arjan Ellens: I changed up the Tall order 215 for a slightly bigger 315 frame that fits my riding style well, so far I really like it and also the Tall Order drone hubs sound awesome.
Why the brake lever on the left hand side?
Arjan Ellens: When I was still in racing I liked to do stuff differently to my bike, I found out that I liked to do my first tricks with my right hand more than left. That made me switch the brake to the left on my freestyle bike and later also on my race bike, now I’m used to it and it also feels really good for my way of barspins.
FAT tires front and rear. Do you like the "suspension" of it?
Arjan Ellens: I like the look and feel of it, also for foot jams it’s nice to have a fat tire in the front. I prefer a proper bike with real (fat) tires and a decent frame setup, no lightweight stuff on here haha.
What trick do you have up your sleeves that needs to happen on the new bike?
Arjan Ellens: A double flip to a real landing, enough airbags and resi landings have been touched (sorry Scott Hamlin).
Huge Thanks to: BMX Amsterdam! They’re growing BMX in a good way building up an insane scene around Amsterdam, they keep putting back in to BMX and support me big time with this brand new setup. Also a shoutout to Maityn for building up my bike and to Koen for helping me keeping my wheels straight as well haha. Thankful for the support and the future with BMX Amsterdam, Boost pumptracks, Masters Of Dirt and our show team DTX13! Let’s have some fun and get on some trips soon! #Genieten
