Today’s Bike Of The Day is a clean Haro SDV2 Dennis Enarson signature BMX bike sent in by Nate Ryan! I love the mix of black red and brown with the white wall tires for a nice offset. Be sure to give this bike a rating via the sliders below for the Bike Of The Month and Bike Of The Year.
The bike pictured was not my primary vision but im happy to have such a great looking rider. I’m into cars and hot rods so i decided to build my own “hot rod” BMX. This is not a show bike it gets ridden and when I was traveling the country I took it with me .~Nate Ryan
Frame: Haro SDV2 Dennis Enarson signature frame. Honestly I purchased this frame on clearance. I made the choice to sell my Terrible one Barcode to pay bills ( family first) This was priced right and the geometry intrigued me. I was bummed that I had to sell my T1 I spent years trying to get one but after getting on this bike all of those feelings slipped away. The Frame is just beautifully manufactured agile and is the perfect transition for a mid school rider. Its my favorite frame of all time at this point. I wish I had a spare.
Fork: Odyssey R32. I couldn’t skimp on forks. Of all the things I’ve broke it was my forks as a kid. The only other fork that I haven’t bent was Pitchfork specials..
Bars: Terrible one. These bars have been on numerous bikes of mine over the years they are strong and reliable.
Bar ends: Ano brown fly bar ends.
Brake Lever: Dia compe MX-99 Lever. This lever has been on every bike I’ve owned for 15+ years. Its witnessed first hand every time I’ve bitched out on a run, ledge or trick.
Grips: ODI Longnecks. These are my jam ill ride ODI Longnecks till all I can ride is a walker.
Stem: Kink Bold. It was another clearance item. It was front load and that’s all that mattered. I used to work on CNC machines and I custom engraved ” God bless the coffin they carry me off in” Its the chorus of my favorite song from the Band Papa Roach.
Headset: Ano red Primo
Seat: Primo Mac Pivotal. I was going for the hot rod look and a brown leather seat is what I needed.
Crank: OG Profile 180mm cranks. These are approaching 15 years old I was hoarding them for years and my original set was a bit to thrashed looking to put on a new bike so on went the NOS spares.
Pedals: Sealed Primo Balance. Another reliable part from past bikes. I bend pedals like a champ these are yet to be defeated.
Sprocket: Profile. This was a hand me down from a friend. I was still rocking a 44t and he gave me this when I decided to join the dark side.
Wheels: Profile Ano red cassette laced to ano red Cinema rims with DT Swiss spokes and brass nipples. It took me a couple years to be able to afford everything to build these. I laced them myself and traded a friend James Delaney a 44t Haro mega nuke in exchange for him to dish and true them. I didn’t have a stand at the time.
Tires: Demolition Momentum 20×2.20. Hot rods need white walls and these were the ones to get. The big tires and high psi took me a while to get used to i wont lie.
Brake: Odyssey Springfield. I recently switched from my FS990 brake to the Springfield and they are decent so far. Im a full figured man at 280 pounds and they stop with me on the bike so..
Pegs: Odyssey Mpegs. Ive always ridden 4 pegs and taught myself to be ambidextrous at a young age. I originally favored my right side but in time I ended up favoring the left on big stuff.
