For 2018, Flybikes worked with Sergio Layos on a brand new signature line that includes the Sierra frame, Sierra bars and Sierra Tripod Seat. Let’s take a closer look!
Flybikes Sierra Frame
Anyone who kept up with BMX in 2017 knows that Sergio Layos had one hell of a year riding at events like the Vans BMX Pro Cup and more. Flybikes and Sergio decided it was time to revamp his signature Trueno line with some modernized design and adjustments to the geometry. First up, let’s take a look at the brand new Sergio Layos signature Sierra frame. This BMX frame is made from 100% Japanese Seamless 4130 chromoly tubing with a 75-degree head tube angle, 71-degree seat tube angle, 11.75″ bottom bracket height, 8.75″ standover height and a 13.6″ chainstay length. The Sierra frame starts out with an offset thickness, heat-treated head tube and internal integrated gussets on the top and down tubes, with an external gusset on the top tube for extra strength up front. The top tube and down tube are multi-butted and tapered and the seat tube is multi-butted. The frame also features a 4130 chromoly Investment Cast seat post clamp with the Horizontal Cut System to give you better clamping with less torque on the frame, a heat-treated Mid bottom bracket, curved seat and chainstay bridges for more tire clearance, heat-treated Investment Cast dropouts with integrated chain tensioners and the Easy Brake System removable brake mounts.
The Sierra frame is available in Translucent Copper and Flat Black colors, top tube lengths of 20.6″ and 21″ with a weight of 4.85 lbs. and a $380.00 price tag. The frame is available through BMX shops or on the Flybikes website.
