The 2020 Complete Bikes from Flybikes have been landing at shops around the world, and they are looking awesome! Here’s a look at the 2020 Proton Complete that is designed for the streets with some real solid components and an affordable price tag. For this year, Flybikes have made a few key improvements to the bike from last year to make it even more dialed. The 2020 Proton now features full 4130 chromoly 4-piece bars along with full 4130 chromoly 27mm offset forks and a taller 9.25” standover height frame, giving the bike a better overall look and feel. They’ve shortened up the backend to have a shorter 13″ chainstay length as well, giving this bike a more responsive feel that’s great for spins, nose manuals and more. Check out more photos and a full parts list below!
Get a look at the new 2020 Omega Complete from Flybikes! Every year we are blown away by how dialed BMX bikes have come and we honestly don’t know how they could get much better… Then they do! This year Flybikes took their top of the line Omega complete that is built for the streets and somehow made it better. This bike has 5 new upgrades from their 2019 model that help make it even better! The new 9.5″ rise 4-piece bars, a brand new Omega 27mm offset fork with the same CNC steerer tube as their aftermarket Volcano fork, the Tractor XL sprocket, the Volcano ST topload stem and a rear hub guard on the drive side are all additions for this year and we’re sure it’s bound to turn some heads. Along with all of those upgrades, you can find full chromoly frame, a bunch of aftermarket Flybikes and Trebol Brand parts to give you a dialed machine that’s ready to hit the streets right out of the box.

After a number of years without the tire, Flybikes have reintroduced their popular Ruben Ligera Tire after a ton of requests. This BMX Tire is designed for the trails riders out there who don’t get a lot of new options these days with so much focus on the street style tires. The Ligera tire features the same classic tread pattern that has a more aggressive pattern based off the popular Ruben Rampera tire. You can find a light kevlar folding bead, a high pressure and puncture resistant layer (HPPR), a pinch flat resistant layer and a high pressure casing. The tire has a 60 TPI count and a max 120 PSI rating. You can pick up the tire in a 20 x 2.40″ size and black for the only color right now.
The Ruben Ligera tire is available through Flybikes dealers worldwide and direct from the Flybikes webstore now.
The Ruben Ligera tire is directional, so you’ll want to mount it the right way to properly get sideways.

This past summer most of the Flybikes team got together at their warehouse in Spain to spend some time cruising the local parks and getting some work done designing new products for the future. They caught a few days of sunshine, then the rain hit and they decided to convert the warehouse into their own indoor park! This video is a mix of footage from the nice days and the rainy days, and despite not the best weather, this video turned out real good!
Also, it’s cool to see the Coastin ramp get put to good use again! Check out How-To Build the Coastin’ Ramp if you’re interested!
“This past August after most of the team spent the weekend at the annual O Marisquiño contest in Vigo, Spain, we decided to have the team at our warehouse to spend some time working on new products and to have some fun on our bikes at some of the amazing local parks! We had a few good days of sunshine, then the rain started and we unexpectedly had to get creative to keep the fun going. We turned our warehouse into a spot to ride with ramps and ledges to ride! Here’s what Sergio Layos, Courage Adams, Teresa Azcoaga, Ruben Alcantara, Sem Kok and Pitu got into during the visit! Unfortunately Devon Smillie and Larry Edgar weren’t able to be here with us due to scheduling!
Despite a little rain, we still managed to have a great time! Enjoy!

Here’s some exciting news we’re sure a bunch of people will be stoked on. Flybikes will be releasing a new and improved Ruben Alcantara signature Ruben Ligera Tire in November, along with an updated version of the Classic Ruben tire and his signature Ruben Grips. Ruben has a quick interview with some of the details over on the DIG website to check out! We’ll post full details closer to the release next month!
Whenever you see Courage Adams or Devon Smillie‘s name pop up, you know you’re going to see something amazing. When you see them both in a video together in a city like Barcelona, you know you’re in for some serious FIRE. Flybikes recently sent Courage and Devon on a 6 day trip to Barcelona where they went to work stacking banger after banger. These two never disappoint, and this one will definitely have you hitting replay!
“When you take two street riders like Devon Smillie and Couage Adams to a city with as many street spots as Barcelona, Spain has to offer, the possibilities are endless. Between Devon’s technical combos and Courage’s incredible balance and bike control, these two made the most of their time in BCN and came away with this amazing new video. Enjoy!

A few months back we got aSneak Peek Look Inside The Flybikes Magneto Cassette Hub that has been in the works for about a decade now. Today the have released a little more info about when the hub will be available, along with the news that Flybikes will also have a new matching Magneto front hub and hub guards to go along with the Magneto Cassette! Their original goal was to have the hub available this summer, but it sounds like a few production delays has set it back to October. Either way, the Magneto Front Hub was a surprise since they haven’t mentioned that at all until now. The hub is based off the original Flybikes Classic front hub with some refinements and added touches to make it match the cassette. Either way, this hubset looks amazing!
“We have been getting a ton of emails and messages asking when the Magneto Cassette Hub will be available, and we are super close! Since these are being made in Europe from a smaller manufacturer, we’ve had a few delays and will have the hub ready to go early October.
We are also excited to let you know that we will be releasing a matching Magneto Front Hub to go with the Cassette and new plastic hub guards that will be available (not pictured) for front and back, drive and non-drive side.
We are very excited to get the Magneto Hubs out and we appreciate your patience! Good things come with time and this has been a very long journey that is almost complete!
If you are a shop or distributor that carries Flybikes and want to get a pre-order in, please get ahold of us today for full details!!”
The crew at Flybikes have been working on a modern version of their popular CNC brakes from back in the day. The new Manual CNC Brakes and Lever are available now, so we figured it would be a good idea to take a closer look at these brakes that come in two versions; Classic and Springhanger, and two colors.
