Larry Edgar Signature

Overview

Larry Edgar signature Aire frame from Fly. With a slightly relaxed head-tube angle and longer rear end ideal for transition riding. 

With personalized gussets, original machined CNC stay bridges, a stylized head tube, and bottom bracket shapes, and a new seat-post clamp, this thing is ready to hit the skies! 

Larry’s go fast and blast high approach to riding has caught the attention of some taller riders out there, so for 2019 Flybikes added an additional 21.8” version of his signature Aire frame. All while maintaining the amazing features, strength, and reliability you’ve come to expect of anything Larry rides.

Frame Geometry

A: Top Tube Length: 20.8″, 21″, 21.8″ – Learn what size is right for you here.

All of these frame sizes are aimed at tall riders who want to have more control when flowing the park.

Check out the BMX Size guide to figure out the right size for you.

B: Chain Stay Length: 13″, 13.8″ – Learn About Chain Stays Here

This is a long chain stay. A long chain stay will give riders more control and stability.

But it will make spins harder.

C: Head Tube Angle: 74.5.º – 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: 11.7″

F: Stand over height: 9.75″

This is a tall standover. A tall standover will give the bike more control, and make bars and t-bog easier.

Conclusion

Larry Edgar is an absolute beast. This frame is a testament to hardcore riding. The Aire 2 Frame is for a rider who likes to go fast and high in the air. Tricks like bars and whips and 720’s will be harder because of the frame’s large nature. However, it will feel really good on dirt and park.

I forgot to mention that the tubing is made out Sanko 4130 chromoly which is a stronger version of chromoly.
