We got another Fate Products BMX bike featured in today’s Bike Of The Day. This time is an aluminum xxxl prototype submitted by Fate owner Matt Kocher! I’m digging the colorway, low profile frame and awesome parts on this build.

This is a Fate Products rat rod AL xxxl prototype frame built with some of the best components out there. So with this build, basically started off with designing a high quality aluminum frame that had all the top of the line features, tapered head tube, adjustable dropouts that accept all axel sizes with built in chain tensioners, 6061 t4/t6 hydro formed and butted tubing. This bike is decked out with Components from Fate, Answer, Remix, Shadow, Maxxis, ODI and Avian.

This build was done at my bmx shop, Gear Head bmx, llc
I’d like to give a shout out to all the riders we support, Ronnie B. And the crew at Sparky’s Distro., Rich & TJ at Tangent, Answer bmx, Dale at Remix, Joey B, Shawn A., Matt S., the Tulsa crew and anyone else that has helped me or influenced me over the years. Thank you.

  1. Wow, nice custom frame, tricked out with all the Kew updates, head tube and disc brake. It has everything going for it minus the actual brand logo. Personally it’s a little weak in the design but that’s just me, otherwise nice ‘something else’ kinda ride, love to know how it comes to some factory frames. GL Matt!
