Damn we have something special for you today! To say Garrett Reynolds is a good bike rider is probably the understatement of the century. After pretty much re-inventing street riding, winning every major street contest and releasing one of the best video parts of all time, the BMX world have been waiting for his signature frame from his own brand Fiend like a kid on christmas morning for about 3 years now. I mean it’s a testament to how humble Garrett is that he waits until all of the PRO team have a signature line first before giving him self a frame.
Well today the speculation on one of the most anticipated frames in BMX history can stop. We are proud to have the exclusive first look at Garrett Reynolds’ signature frame, bars, stem and seat from Fiend.

Mutiny have been dropping teasers of the Randy Taylor (RIP) re-issue signature Loosefer frame on their Facebook in a very crisp green and a red that’d have Iron Man in envy… They’re not available for a little while yet apparently but all the proceeds go to charity so it’s gonna be one to wait for.
FBM‘s machine shop has always spat out the finest US made frames since day one and what better way to celebrate than with this awesome re-make of FBM’s debut Angel Of Death frame. Unlike the days of when we installed/destroyed our bearings with a lump hammer to Slayer this frame features a press-fit Mid BB and integrated headtube as well as slimmer tubing and smaller dropouts No details on any specs as of yet but it looks a tad more maneuverable this time around.
Like your bikes to be able to move? Well so does Alex Donnachie apparently… BSD unveiled the ALVX frame from their 2015 line recently and just dropped some info on it’s geometry and to say this thing is tight would be an understatement. The super steep 75.5 degree head angle and ridiculously short 12.5 chainstays are measurements that would make most flatlanders blush. Here’s the vital stats from BSD’s website;
- Super short rear end slammable to 12.5”
- Extra wide rear end for up to 2.4” tires
- Curved ends on stays for peg clearance
- External gussets
- No brake mounts
- Toptube sizes : 20.3″, 20.6″, 20.8″ and 21″
- Headtube angle : 75.5°
- Chain stay length : 12.5 to 13″
- Weight : 5 lbs
- Colours : Trans blue, clear coat raw and flat black
Notice how close the chainstay bridge is to the BB. This frame should be available to the general public by late November so keep an eye and an ear out.
*Edit* I previously made a guess to the BB height but an eagle-eyed viewer commented below and put me right with this;
BB Height: 11.8(!)
Standover Height: 8.7
Gone are the days of zip tied seats to top tubes, bars are getting taller and frames are getting taller to match. We’ve seen more brands adopting taller headtubes like BSD, WeThePeople, S&M and now Caleb Quanbeck is riding a sample Stranger Ballast frame with a huge 10″ standover and a super tall headtube to match. What do you guys think to this one?
