André Bodlin - Bike Check 2017
Yo André, where do you come from and how long have you been riding?
I come from the beautiful Sonthofen in the Allgäu, but I'm living for 3,5 years in Stuttgart now. I've been riding BMX for about 6-7 years.
What is your favorite BMX video?
Difficult task from the abundance of great BMX videos to choose a favorite, but the Above Below Part by Nathan Williams (filmed by Rich Forne) I've probably watched most.
What bike setup do you have and what can you tell about it?
Most of the parts on my bike are Éclat products. Only frame and handlebars come from Wethepeople. The frame is - since I`m not the largest - with the small top tube (20.75 ") quite perfect for me. In addition, I`ve made sure that the Chain Stay is slightly shorter. Tailwhips are a bit easier. There is not much more to report. Except maybe my light Chicago handlebars (but still limited). Oh yes: I am very satisfied :)
