Stereo Bikes was born in 2008 with the goal of bringing out the best BMX bikes and parts around. All of Stereo Bikes’ products have been through through a hard testing session with its family of riders, which includes John Castillo, Paris Labrianidis, Chris Metzger, Sebastian Balk, Tobi Schumacher, Bartosz Sankowski, Olli Hill, Jeremy Hacker, Lewis Murtagh and Connor Phimister.
Stereo’s complete bikes for 2015 look outstanding and it is often hard to distinguish them from a custom model. Included in the range is the all-black 10.9 kg ‘Flash’, featuring 4130 100% sanko chromoly tubes, welded laser-cut chainstay end caps, toptube and downtube frame gussets with stamped Stereo ‘Pyramid’ logo, integrated seat clamp and a wider frame for thicker tyres. Also available are the ‘Snake’, ‘Treble’, ‘Wire’, ‘Plug-In’, ‘Speaker’ and ‘Speaker Plus’ models.
It’s not only the names of the bikes themselves that make it clear where Stereo gets much of its inspiration from – they come in a range of distinctive colours with names like Metallica Gloss Black, FoRAWeigner Matt, Jane’s RAWdiction Matt Grey and Brown Sugar Fade Raw. There is also an 18” ‘Half Stack’ model that is available in Alice Copper.
Other Stereo products include two frames – the ‘Flash’ and the green, yellow and red fifth anniversary edition ‘Rasta’ – and two bars called the ‘Hard Rock’ and the ‘Hard 4 Bar’. Stereo parts include cranks, front and top loader stems, front and rear hubs, hubguards, sprockets, tripod and pivotal seat posts, seats, tyres and grips.
