Every year when the new complete BMX bikes start popping up, we anticipate the Verde Bikes release because they do a phenomenal job of making the bikes look absolutely amazing. The other day they dropped their 2017 Complete BMX Bikes, and one of the bikes was their Luxe VX2 complete that really caught our eye, so we figured it would be a good idea to take a closer look!
The 2017 Luxe VX2 starts out with a 100% chromoly frame with a 74.5-degree head tube angle, 71-degree seat tube angle, 11.7″ bottom bracket height, 9.4″ standover height, 13.5″ chainstay length and a 21″ top tube length. You can find features like top and down tube gussets, a Reynolds 520 butted chromoly down tube, Mid bottom bracket, integrated seat post clamp, Investment Cast seat stay bridge and removable brake mounts. The Verde Regent fork is also 100% chromoly with a 1-piece CNC machined steerer tube and tapered legs and the Verde Neyer Pro bars at 100% chromoly with a 9″ rise.
