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

As with any high-level bike, the type A+ is over $600. I think this is expensive for a beginner rider, but is perfect for someone who wants a really good quality bike, but doesn't want to build a $1500 custom.

2020 Fiend Type A+ Quality

There is very little that is low quality on this bike. Here is what I like about the quality on this bike.

  • Full chromoly
  • Double Wall Rim
  • Aftermarket Mission parts

Highlights

Street Dream

Made perfectly for street riders by designing the specs to help you learn hops, bars, and 360's easilly.

Lowlights

A little expensive

I think that $650 is a lot of money. Even though the quality is right, the price is a lot!

Buy if you are learning:

  • Bars
  • 180
  • 360
  • medium airs/transfers
  • Whips

Don't buy if you are learning:

  • Good for anything!
