A: Top Tube Length: 20.5″ – Learn what size is right for you here.
This is a medium toptube.
Perfect for riders that are between 5’6″ to 5’8″
This is a medium chain stay designed to balance tech and flow riding.
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: 8.5″
This is a medium standover.
A tall standover gives you more stability and will make bars, and t-bogs easier.
2020 Fiend Type O Price
It is good that the type O only costs $430. But I still think that it is pretty overpriced.
2020 Fiend Type O Quality
Here’s what is low quality about the bike:
- Not full chromoly frame
- Single Wall rims
- No pegs
- Unsealed front hub
- Weak bars and forks
For a lot of kids and parents, $500 is a reasonable price for a bmx bike. A study shows that parents are spending around $422 per child for Christmas. So a bike around this range will help get kids into bmx.
The frame isn’t full chromoly.
You can read about the difference in chromoly and hi-tensile here. Basically, hi-tensile steel will bend over time. That’s why I recommend full chromoly, all of the time.
Buy if you are learning:
- small airs/transfers
- x-up rides
Don’t buy if you are learning:
- Huge stair drops

2020 Fiend Type O Conclusion 🤩
Since the quality to price ratio is so bad, I do not recommend this bike. I would recommend going up $100 and getting the Fiend B+ or looking for a similarly priced bike with better quality.
