Let’s take a look at the new Matt Nordstrom, Ethan Corriere and Justin Spriet Signature Savage frames from Fit Bike Co.!
It’s kind of crazy looking back over the past few years and seeing long time Pros fading out or retiring and a newer generation start taking shape with some brands seeing a number of new faces. Fit Bike Co. are one of those brands that have embraced the new generation of riders and there is no denying that three riders in particular have stood out. Those three guys would be Matt Nordstrom, Justin Spriet and Ethan Corriere. After putting in the work and kicking ass for a while now, Fit decided it was time to give these guys the chance to do their own signature colorway and graphics for their ever popular Savage frame. We have been getting a few sneak preview looks at the frames over the course of the past few weeks, but now that they are available, we figured it would be a good idea to get a closer look! Let’s get into this.
For their signature frame, the guys decided instead of doing different geometry for each frame, that they were all really stoked on the original geometry that the Savage frame had to offer. All three frames have the same geometry, but feature unique graphics (all done by Eben Fischer), their own colorway and custom engraved head tube graphics. You can take a closer look below, but let’s talk geometry and features first.
The Savage frame from Fit Bike Co. is made right here in the United States from full 4130 chromoly tubing and features geometry that are ideal for street riding.
Head Tube Angle: 75.5°
Seat Tube Angle: 71°
Bottom Bracket Height: 11.8″
Standover Height: 9.1″
Chainstay Length: 13.275″ – 13.625″
Top Tube Lengths: 20.75″ and 21″
The frame is loaded with features that give it plenty of strength (It damn better with a name like “Savage”, right?) to hold up to whatever you can throw at it. You can find an Integrated head tube with engraved custom logos, top and down tube gussets with the F-IT logo, a butted top tube and seat tube, straight gauge down tube, a Mid bottom bracket with the EZ-Out punch slots for bearing removal, an integrated seat post clamp, Straight gauge and ultra-tapered seat stays, straight gauge S-Bend tapered chain stays and 4Q Baked 1/2″ thick dropouts with integrated chain tensioners.
The Savage frame comes with removable brake mounts that have a 5-degree angle on the guides and mounts for better braking and the rear end has plenty of room for 2.40″ tires, even when the wheel is slammed in the dropouts.
You can pick this frame up in Translucent Purple (Matt Nordstrom), Translucent Red (Ethan Corriere) and Translucent Smoke Grey (Justin Spriet) with top tube lengths of 20.75″ and 21″ and a weigh in at 5.02 lbs. (20.75″) and 5.08 lbs. (21″) for $354.99 through Fit Bike Co. dealers worldwide now or on the Fit Bike Co. website.

Matt Nordstrom’s signature Savage frame comes in translucent purple with Viking inspired graphics like the badass axe with the Fit Key Logo on it.

Integrated chain tensioners on the heat-treated dropouts.
The Axe pattern is engraved into the head tube of the frame as a custom feature specific to Matt’s frame.

Ethan Corriere Signature Savage Frame – Translucent Red
Ethan Corriere went with a translucent red colorway and apparently has been juicing a bit based off his cartoon version of himself on the seat tube. Ethan went with a sword as his signature design that can be found on the down tube and head tube engraving.
A little bit of juice to beef up Ethan in the drawing. Imagine if he was actually that muscular? That would be funny to see him do those pick up barspins.
The sword logo found on the head tube of the frame.

Justin Spriet Signature Savage Frame – Translucent Smoke Grey
For Justin Spriet’s signature Savage frame, he went with a translucent smoke grey colorway that turned out really good. For Justin’s artwork, he took on an arrow theme that can be found throughout the graphics.
All graphics by Eben Fisher. How good is that mustache on Justin’s cartoon character? Definitely perfect representation in the artwork.
The arrow can be found on the head tube.

Like we mentioned above, all three of the Savage frames are available now through BMX shops and mail-orders that carry Fit Bike Co. worldwide for $354.99! If you don’t have a local shop or don’t want to wait for it to be in stock, you can order it direct from the Fit Bike Co. website as well.
That about wraps it up! We’re stoked on the way these frames turned out. The colors look great and the artwork is dialed. We already know the Savage frame is built to take a beating, so that’s a perk, too! Have any questions? Let us know in the comments below!
