Get a closer look at the new 2018 Sion Complete from Flybikes!
It seems like every year the new complete BMX bikes come out that we think “there is no way they can get better than this”… and then they do. The other day Flybikes released their 2018 complete bikes, frames and parts, and they exceeded expectations like many other brands did with their products for this year. One bike in particular that we are really digging in this 2018 Sion, so we figured it would be a good idea to take a closer look at this higher end complete that’s available in a crazy flat translucent blue and a matte black and grey combo.
