The Fingers Crossed bikes will be going into production and available sometime next year (production is all sorts of behind these days), but the samples have been getting put to the test! Ruben Alcantara, Pitu, Sergio Layos and more have been putting the bikes through a ton of thorough testing at different BMX trails, mountain bike downhill courses, drainage ditches and more. Check out how things went in this fresh video packed with riding!
The Fingers Crossed samples are in, and Ruben Alcantara recruited some help to put the bikes to a proper test! Here’s a video giving us a look at what these guys were able to throw down on the bikes! With each video, these bikes look more and more fun to ride!
No word when they will be available since COVID has screwed up production, but it sounds like next year these will be landing at shops worldwide.

Every time we see one of these bikes pop up, we are more and more stoked on the idea and curious just what it’s like riding one. Traxxmedia, who have been producing all of the Fingers Crossed videos, just uploaded a video they had submitted giving us a look at what it’s like from a POV perspective riding one of these bikes on a downhill MTB park over in the Czech Republic.
One other interesting thing is there’s a prototype of a bike being made right now that could possibly go into production in the near future. Check out the Instagram post from Ruben Alcantara below!
“Straight from Czeck Republic @votja_panek bring us this video riding his DIY full suspension BMX made by @tbbbike at @bikeparkkoprivna.
This video shows the endless possibilities of an fingerscrossedbmx style bike and how it can be ridden at any bikepark.
It’s amazing to see fast evolution of the @fingerscrossedbmx family around the globe with more and more bikes poppoing up every day.

We’ve been getting more and more looks at the Fingers Crossed bike that Ruben Alcantara dreamt up and figured out how to get built in past videos, and many of you were curious how he built the bike. Ruben decided to put together a little video bike check giving you a closer look at his setup that was built up from a bunch of different parts, along with some modifications to make it work! Based on the end of the video, it sounds like Ruben is working on getting these put into production so you coul buy it as a complete or get a kit to build your own, which is rad. We don’t know when that will be, but it sounds like it’s going to happen. Hit play and take a look at this full suspension BMX bike that looks like a ton of fun to ride!

Here’s one we’ve been looking forward to! The 3rd episode of the Fingers Crossed series giving us a good look a these crazy BMX and MTB hybrid bikes Ruben Alcantara dreamed up! This time around Ruben, Garrett Byrnes, Mike Bennett and crew take a trip to the Revolution Bike park in the the U.K to test the bikes out on a real downhill park. Based on the footage, these bikes really held up and it looks like they had a damn good time! The more and more we watch, the more and more we want one of these bikes! So rad! Hit play and check this out!

Here’s one we’re sure a bunch of people were waiting to see. The second episode of the Fingers Crossed series has arrived and this time around we get a good look at just what these BMX / MTB hybrid bikes are capable of as Ruben Alcantara and Garrett Byrnes put their bikes to good use on trails, wallrides and other setups, along with their first break down that they aren’t quite sure how to fix. Hit play and take it all in! These bikes are looking more and more fun with each video, except for the trees.. That looks painful as hell.

Here’s one we’re sure a bunch of you have been waiting for! The first episode discussing just what Fingers Crossed is all about! This video gets insights from Ruben Alcantara, Garrett Byrnes, Mike Bennett and Ari Cruz about these crazy BMX bikes modified to use suspension and bigger tires so you can ride on MTB trails, or regular BMX trails / spots with a little extra comfort. Not only that, but there’s a ton of great footage from sessions and a good look at the bikes! It’s a little bit crazy, but it’s an interesting idea and they seem to be really stoked on it.
What do you think about this idea? Do you want to see it go into production? Let us know what you think in the comments down below!

“13 years ago I had the opportunity to ride the bike park of Whistler with a mountain bike, I had so much fun but I was thinking all the time : I wish I could ride this on my bmx…after that I started to work on it but I couldn’t finished right and left it in a side…until now.. ” – Ruben Alcantara

The other day a video surfaced online giving us the first look at Fingers Crossed, a new suspension BMX bike project that Ruben Alcantara, Garrett Byrnes and a few others have been working on. The video got a lot of attention, and there were A LOT of questions that came up from how are these bikes being made, will they go into production, what is the point of the bikes and more. The crew at Ride UK caught up with Ruben for an interview where he discusses all of those things in better detail, answering pretty much all questions we’ve seen pop up. You can check the interview out right here. You can also check out the promo video again below!
