Now this is a serious Flashback Friday. Volume Bikes just announced that they will be re-releasing their old Dinosaur frame as a part of their 20th anniversary! This brings me waaay back to when I was first getting into BMX and remember seeing one of the locals at the trails rolling around on one of the original Volume Dinosaur frames when it first came out way back in 2001. Fast forward all these years and Volume will be re-releasing the Brian Castillo signature frame with modern materials and geometry (along with a weight that won’t throw your back out!) that fits with 2020 style BMX frames. Check out full details on the frame below, along with geometry, specs and photos! Available through BMX shops and mail-orders that carry Volume Bikes worldwide now like Source BMX!
“For Volume’s 20th anniversary we wanted to bring back a classic frame. Brian Castillo’s signature Dinosaur! This frame originally came out in 2001! Brian knew what he wanted back then, with it only being available in a 20.5” top tube (Exactly as he rode it himself) and dropouts borrowed from a previous years Volume frame. Even today, Brian’s influence on bmx still shows in riders around the world, whether they know it or not.
This frame has evolved over the years and is now available in black chrome with a 21” top tube. The frame features a double butted front triangle with top and bottom gussets for added strength, wider bottom bracket shell for bigger tire clearance, 13” chainstay (slammed), 9.25” standover, classic solid 5mm thick dropouts, removable seatstay brake mounts, built in seat clamp, CNC’d seatstay bridge and a classic wishbone chainstay junction!” – Volume Bikes
