Flybikes began in 1999 in Vigo, Spain. A beautiful place! The guys have a crazy passion for BMX bikes and strive for perfection in how their products look and how their parts ride. There are some signature design aspects in Flybikes parts that let you know they’re part of the family as soon as you see them. From the little tree insignia to their clever and stylish design principles, Flybikes stuff is carefully dialled. The Flybikes team has always been strong, supporting some of the world’s most stylish and most progressive BMX riders, from icons like Ruben Alcantara and Sergio Layos to future legends Courage Adams and Devon Smillie.
Devon Smillie is some kind of wizard on a bike. His prowess at fakie manuals and jaw-dropping tech combos has been wowing other riders for the last few years, and Devon continues to push progression. Just watch any of his videos and you’ll see how much control he has – it’s astounding.
These bars are the perfect match to the Flybikes Fuego frame, of course. Especially colour-wise if you can get hold of this flat trans blue.
“Devon has locked these down to his ideal angles of 3º upsweep and 10º backsweep."
The Fuego is a solid bar. Butted tubing, heat treated, good geometry, all the things you’d expect. Devon has locked these down to his ideal angles of 3º upsweep and 10º backsweep, which is a bit more up and a little less back than many bars on the market. For those who prefer that kind of feel, these are a very good choice. In terms of rise, you can choose between 9" or 9.5".
A nice feature of the Flybikes bars is that they come with incremental 0.5" cut lines to make it easier to customise the width. No measuring needed, no risk of wonky cuts, just lock the blade in and you’re sorted. Super useful!
