2020 Fly Orion Price
Not many BMX bikes cost $600-$700. So this makes the Orion special. It gives riders the option to buy a bike with quality similar to that of a custom bike, for a lot cheaper. I still think that this is a lot of money, but it is worth the cost.
2020 Fly Orion Quality
A classic high-level bike. This bmx bike has everything that a high-level rider will need, including full chromoly, gussets, and strong wheels. Fly even included after market “pro parts”
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.
Fly Ruben Tires: There’s not much to be said that hasn’t already about the classic Ruben tire. The original fat, now legendary tire, with medium depth and perfect tread pattern, micro knurling that’s as happy in the dirt as it is on cement, this really is the perfect tire for every occasion. Rubens Rampera tire comes standard with a puncture-resistant layer and up to 110 PSI capabilities.
