2020 Fly Electron Review


One of Fly’s cheapest 20″ bike. The Electron has a little bit of chromoly and is aimed toward new riders. Giving them an okay bike so they can learn beginner bmx tricks. The electron in my opinions is a little over priced. Even though it does come with double wall rims.

2020 Fly Electron Overview

The Electron is Fly’s mid-range bike for all kind of riding at an affordable price without sacrificing the quality that everybody expects. Fly used high end features like a 1-piece Chromoly steerer tube forks and the Trebol Bueno cranks without the weak pinch clamp design. The Electron also comes with the Trebol 2.35” tyres, Electron Tripod seat, Ruben signature Graphite pedals and Devon grips this year to help create one sweet ride at an affordable price.

Frame Geometry

A: Top Tube Length:  20.5″ – Learn what size is right for you here.

This is a small toptube.

Perfect for riders that are between 5′ to 5’6″

B: Chain Stay Length: 13.2”

This is a longer chain stay designed to give you more control when flowing parks and trails.

C: Head Tube Angle: 75° – Learn About Head Tube Angles Here

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

A less steep head tube gives you more control.

D: Seat Tube Angle: 71°

E: Bottom Bracket Height: 11.75″

F: Stand over height: 9″

This is a taller standover.

A tall standover gives you more stability and will make bars, and t-bogs easier.

2020 Fly Electron Price

Way Over Priced. Even though it has double wall rimes, the single chromoly downtube doesn’t make it worth $500 in my opinion. All around, this is a good bike. I just wish that it had a full chromoly frame for this price.

2020 Fly Electron Quality

Sadly I think the quality is lacking. The most important part (frame) has a weaker version of metal built into it. That makes me sad.

Highlights

Good bike for beginners

Even though it is way over priced. It still is a really good beginner bike. The compact frame and the small quality upgrades like the cranks and forks make it decent for a beginner. Just not for $500

Lowlights

Bad Quality

From everything that I can tell.. This bike is way over priced. In my opinion this is a $300-$400 dollar bike. It has double wall rims but not a full chromoly frame. They skipped out on the after market parts like the Proton and Orion had.

Buy if you are learning:

  • Bars

  • Huge stair drops
  • grinding rails
  • 720
  • flips
