We’ve been absolutely blown away with the 2017 complete BMX Bikes that have been coming out lately. Today, United Bike Co. unveiled their 2017 range of bikes and they did not disappoint! One bike that really caught our eye was the Alex Valentino signature Valentino LHD Freecoaster complete that looks incredibly clean. We figured it would be a good idea to take a closer look and see just what this bike has to offer!
The 2017 Valentino complete starts out with a 100% chromoly frame with a 75.5-degree head tube angle, 71-degree seat tube angle, 11.8″ bottom bracket height, 8.5″ standover height and 13.25″ chainstay length. You can find features like an integrated head tube, top and downtube gussets, a Mid bottom bracket and removable brake mounts. The fork has a chromoly CNC machined steerer tube with integrated bearing race with tapered 1020 Hi-Tensile steel legs with angled end caps. The bars a 100% 4130 chromoly with a 10″ rise, 30″ width, 12-degrees of backsweep and 1-degree of upsweep.

It’s also cool to see freecoasters popping up more and more on complete bikes with how popular they have become over the past few years.
