Frame Geometry

A: Top Tube Length:  20.75″ – Learn what size is right for you here.

This is a medium toptube.

Perfect for riders that are between 5’6″ to 5’8″

B: Chain Stay Length: 12.75” – Learn About Chain Stays Here

This is a medium chain stay designed to balance tech and flow riding.

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: 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 A Price

I would recommend this bike even though the price could be considered “high”. A $600 bike is not an easy purchase, but I can assure you that the parts are worth it.

2020 Fiend Type A Quality

Fiend really killed it with this top line “advanced” level bmx bike.

  • Full Chromoly Frame, Bars, and Forks
  • Double-wall rims
  • Pegs and hub guards

Highlights

A Good quality to price ratio

Some bikes are shitty quality for the price. But this is one of the few that is actually worth the price because of the parts that come on this Fiend bmx bike.

Lowlights

High Ticket Item

Spending more than $500 on a bike hurts. Please make sure that you need this level of quality before you buy it. If you are riding at a beginner level, just buy a cheaper bike.

Buy if you are learning:

  • Any tricks!!!

Don’t buy if you are learning:

  • Good for anything!
