2020 Fly Omega Freecoaster Overview

The Omega complete has been amazingly equipped since the start, but Fly keep on finding ways to make it even better! Five upgrades that will make a big difference is the Omega 27mm offset fork that uses the same CNC steerer tube concept as the Volcano Forks, the 9.5” 4-piece Omega Bars that are designed after Devon Smillie’s signature Fuego bars, the strong Tractor XL sprocket, Higher and shorter Volcano ST stem and Drive side rear guard. These upgrades make the Omega an even better street machine than it already was!

This is a long chain stay. Longer Chain-stays give you more control when doing manuals and bunny hops.

Steep head tube angles make the bike “snappy” meaning more responsive to fast turns.

A less steep head tube gives you more control.

2020 Fly Omega Freecoaster Price

Normally I really recommend fly bikes for the price to quality ratio. However, the 2020 Omega seems a bit over priced this year. This could be due to the fact that source has the price a little higher. It’s currently $884.54, and I feel like it’s more of a $650 to $700 bike.

2020 Fly Omega Freecoaster Quality

With a high price, comes high quality. This bike has the standard high quality components like: Full chromoly, double wall rims and 3 piece cranks. But as a bonus, Fly added a few small touches.

Fly Tractor Sprocket: An aftermarked sprocket that is thicker than most.

Volcano ST Stem: The brand new Volcano ST stem comes with a shorter 48mm reach and a taller, more street friendly 35mm rise, to make your ride not only ultra responsive, but also amazing looking too.

Top Line

Expensive

Like I mentioned earlier, I feel like the 2020 Omega is slightly over priced. I wish it was a little cheaper.
