You can’t go wrong with a fresh new setup! Flybikes released a quick Bike Check with Alejandro “Pitu” Alcojor and his fresh Aire II setup that he’s riding over in Spain! You can check out a bunch of photos, along with a full parts list over on the Flybikes Website now!
It’s been so crazy seeing the younger generation progress incredibly fast. Flybikes have announced that they have added 10 year old shredder over in Spain Javitxu de la Torre to their crew! Here’s a video where Javitxu teamed up with Sergio Layos for some amazing riding at a concrete park! There’s honestly clips where we can’t even tell the difference between Sergio and Javitxu. It’s easy to see just why he was added to the team! After you watch the video, you can check out his setup an an interview over on the DIG website!
“We are very excited to welcome Javitxu de la Torre to the Flybikes family! Over the years, we’ve watched as younger and younger riders have progressed faster and faster, and it’s been incredible. But, when Sergio Layos puts your name out to be on the team, you know you’re on another level! Check out the future as Javitxu and Sergio team up for this amazing video!
Javitxu is riding the new Sierra 18″ frame, 8″ Sierra bars, 18″ Volcano fork, and Fuego 18″ tires, along with other Flybikes aftermarket parts with the aim of getting the perfect 18 inch setup. This setup was designed to look and ride just like Sergio’s personal Sierra setup!

We’re getting a double whammy from Devon Smillie today! Earlier we poste up his new USL BMX Dice video, now we get a 5 minute banger packed with clips he filmed over the course of 2020 around southern California for Flybikes! No traveling or contests, but it looks like Devon still made the most of it, stacking a ton of heavy clips for this! You already know this one is a must see!
“2020 was a year that nobody expected to turn out the way it did. The pandemic changed up everyone’s world, some more than others. Instead of traveling the world, riding in contests and filming at crazy spots in cities all over like normal, Devon Smillie stayed home in California. Despite all the negatives, there was a silver lining; schools were closed, normally busy and unrideable spots were cleared out and the sessions with the locals were still happening! 2020 was less than ideal, but Devon managed to make the most of it and stack a ton of fire clips staying close to home! Enjoy!

Check out the new Courage Adams signature Flat Raw Savanna 2 frame!
With the way this year has been, it’s no surprise that we’ve seen a pretty sporadic release in products this year from brands. There’s been crazy supply issues, delays with manufacturers, shipping container shortages and overloaded delivery services. But, it’s made it so new products are a little more unexpected.
Flybikes have begun releasing some of their new 2021 products, and it looks like Courage Adams signature Savanna 2 frame from Flybikes has been released in this new Flat Raw color! The Savanna 2 frame is made from full 4130 Japanese seamless chromoly tubing with a 75.5-degree head tube angle, 71-degree seat tube angle, 11.75″ bottom bracket height, 9.25″ standover height and a 13″ chainstay length. They’ve gone with new tubing specs to help reduce the weight without sacrificing strength, a CNC machined 4.45″ (113mm) tall Integrated headtube, laser cut top and downtube gussets internally and externally (double gussets), multi-butted and tapered tubing, an Investment Cast seatpost clamp, Mid bottom bracket, laser cut seat and chainstay bridges and Investment Cast dropouts with integrated chain tensioners. You can find heat-treating on this frame as well. Also note that the Savanna frame is brakeless, so there are no mounts or guides.
The Savanna 2 frame is available in 20.2″, 20.6″ and 21″ top tube lengths with Flat Raw, Gloss Black and Metallic White for color options and a weight of 5.3 lbs. The frame is available for $370.00 through BMX shops and mail-orders that carry Flybikes worldwide and online, or direct from the Flybikes Website.

Here’s some news that some of you might have figured out already. Devon Smillie is no longer riding for Eclat. We’re not sure what happened or when, but Devon’s no longer riding their parts and isn’t listed on the Eclat website anymore. What we do know is Devon has decided to go all in on riding for Flybikes where he already has his signature Fuego line with a frame, bars, seat, grips and tires. Above is a look at his new setup which is 100% Flybikes from top to bottom, including the new Magneto cassette hub. This also includes a sneak peek look at his new frame colorway for 2021 that’ll be out in a few months as well!
What do you think about the news? What do you think about Devon’s new bike? Let us know what you’re thinking in the comments below!
We’re always stoked to check out some fresh Sem Kok footage! Here’s a short but sweet one from Flybikes featuring Sem getting some laps in at the Dirt E19 trails! No music, just the sweet sounds of the new Flybikes Magneto hub and Ruben tires! Needless to say, Sem brings the style and we’re really digging the film work on this one. Take a look!
“One of the best things is just being out in the woods flowing through a set of dialed trails. No scooters to cut you off midline, no security to kick you out. Just the sound of your tires and cassette, and plenty of fun. Here’s a new one featuring Sem Kok getting some time in at the Dirt E19 trails with the sound of our new Magneto hubs buzzing along. As always, Sem brings the style making for a great watch! Enjoy!

There has been a lot of hype for the Magneto hubs over the last decade, and I know there’s a ton of riders out there that wanted them, but gave up hope since they seemed like they would never actually happen. Well, they came out earlier this year and have been selling out each time. Flybikes dropped this short but sweet promo featuring Sem Kok putting the hubs to work with that sweet, sweet sound that they make. Hit play and enjoy. You can learn more about the hubs over on the Flybikes website!
“After over 10 years of development, dozens of prototypes, countless manufacturers who couldn’t get it right and thousands of hours of testing, the Magneto hubs finally arrived earlier this year. They’ve been hard to keep in stock, but Flybikes dealers worldwide have them available now! Seeing a rider like Sem Kok putting them to good use makes all the hard work worth it! Enjoy the sounds.
