GT’s 2018 fleet of Speed Series complete BMX racing bikes are looking pretty awesome! These bikes are made for some serious racing action right out the box. Each bike in the line up features a frame made of 6061-T6 AL, alloy formed and butted speed metal tubing with a CNC and forged Quick Change Dropout System. The smaller frames like the miro features reverse dropouts. Parts wise the bike is on point with BOX carbon 20mm forks, a 20mm GT speed series sealed hub laced to a speed series aero double wall rim and Tioga Powerblock tires. The rear hub features six pawls, four sealed bearings, and 72 points of engagement, Nice! The bike is also fitted with a BOX echelon seat/post combo. Promax parts are used for the quick release seat clamp, brake lever, brake arms, impact stem and KMC is supplying the chain. The rest of the parts are GT.
We’re loving that neon yellow/black colorway of the frames, they’re definitely gonna stick out on the track. But the little, intricate styling on the frames is what really makes them sexy like the embossed, filigree design on the side of the top tube, the six-speed shifter logo on the seat stay and top tube. It also looks like the GT logo on the head tube is embossed on the frame as well! Really nice!!
“GT 2018 Speed Series Unlocks a New Level of BMX Racing Wilton, Conn. – September 19, 2017 –GT Bicycles, a premium brand of Dorel Industries, Inc. (TSX: DII.B, DII.A), today announced the launch of the completely re-designed BMX Speed Series. Part of GT’s BMX Race lineup for more than 20 years, the all-new Speed Series has been upgraded with advanced frame technology and bold new color and graphics. GT’s Speed Series is an elite racing bike at a great value.
During the design process of the new Speed Series, we made sure to pay respect to a frame that has changed the standard in BMX race for more than two decades, said Ben Ward, GT BMX Race Product Manager. We worked closely with our team riders globally to deliver a bike that is ready to lead them to the top of the podium.
Since it first burst onto the BMX scene, the Speed Series brought victory after victory on the track thanks to GT’s attention to balanced weight and stiffness. The 2018 Speed Series bikes have been designed with an even lighter weight alloy frame than its earlier predecessors, which continue to deliver a balanced ride that allow riders to go farther faster but always be in control.
Also part of the line are the Speed Series junior level bikes, the Speed Micro 20, Mini, and Junior. These bikes have the same first-class specs as their larger counterparts. The Speed Series is available in 8 models with a price range of $599-$1,049 USD. The Speed Series’ alloy frameset is also available at $399 USD.”
Colony Oz-One Frame! Retro BMX Dopeness
The folks at Colony are always making some dope BMX frames and their most recent frame build has been causing a crazy buzz on the web! Their latest build is called the Oz-One and it’s a retro frame inspired by the classic 1988 Ozone Method One.
The frame is a modern take on the classic Ozone and features geometry that will be very close to the Colony Prody Frame.
