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.

Steep head tube angles make the bike “snappy” meaning more responsive to fast turns.
A less steep head tube gives you more control.

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.
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
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.

2020 Fly Electron Conclusion 🤩
I would love the bike if it was $350. I’m sure that’s unreasonable and fly needs to make money. But compared to other complete bikes, the Electron is over priced. Only get this bike if you are at a beginner level and you have a lot of money.
