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.
So I think that $499 is a good price for a bmx bike. However, I wish that the frame was full chromoly. This bike is really good if you just want to test out bmx. But if you have dreams of sending really huge tricks later on down the line, go with a full Chromoly bike.
The type B is a mid-level bmx bike. Meaning it has medium quality. Here are the good parts on this bike:
A lot of bikes come right around $300-$500. It is always good to see when a bike comes in at less than $500 because I think parents are more apt to buy a bike for this price.
I wrote a post here explaining the difference in full chromoly and trimoly. A bike that is "trimoly" is a lot weaker as the back end will bend over time with spins.
If you consider yourself a mid-level rider, who needs a bike that can hold up to tricks like barspins, small 360's and basic street grinds... this bike will work for you. I think it is a good price for what you get, especially because fiend builds quality stuff.
This bike is great for riders between 5' 6" to 5'8"
For a mid-level rider, this bike will last about 2 years.
Good for more mid-level and beginner riders.
The Fiend Type B weighs about 27.5 lbs. Remember that this includes 2 pegs.
