Crazy Al Cayne was walking around the tent area at the Stars N Stripes nationals at Nova BMX and got stopped by 19-27 expert Kyle Smith who wanted to show Crazy Al his new FTB (Factory Team Bikes) Elite. Crazy Al were diggin the colorway and the decals on this bike so he pulled out the Gopro and mic and did a quick Bike Check video!
Kyle’s bike was hooked up with some dope parts like Elevn 8.0 forks, Elven Bars, Cliq Cranks, Tangent sprocket, Onyx Hubs Alienation rims and more, he gives Al a full rundown of what he has on his bike in the video.
You can catch Kyle and his team Out To Win/FTB at the upcoming 2016 USABMX Nationals and regionals.
So after we got home we looked up FTB and totally forgot we posted an article about the Elite frame a while back. They totally changed the decals for 2016 and we totally didn’t realize it was the same bike lol! It does look a lot better now, good stuff!
