Alex Donnachie Bike Check [BSD] 2022

alex donnachie bike check

If you’re into technical street riding, I’m sure you’re interested in the latest Alex Donnachie bike check.

His bike build is very responsive, with a steep front-end and a short rear-end.

Alex also likes a low standover height with about an inch of seat post peeking out.

Also, you’ll notice that Donnachie can go really wild with his street frame color choices. (But still picks a black one from time to time.)

As a BSD pro, you can expect that his bike is an all-BSD setup with a few signature parts (BSD frame, seat & tires).

Old Alex Donnachie Bike Checks

BSD (2021)

Okay, even though I always like all-black bikes the most, this ice blue version of Alex’s bike looks insane. Especially with the white tires!

And keeping all the other parts black – WOW!

You can check more pictures and a full parts list over at BSD.

BSD (2020)

Alex’s signature ALVX frame almost every year comes out in some wild color options. It doesn’t necessarily have any major frame geo updates, but you can expect new shades.

This flat trans turquoise version is an excellent example of that!

Alex also strategically chose raw cranks and sprocket with a chrome chain to keep the rear part of the bike raw themed. All the rest is black and looks really cool.

Enjoy the rest of the goodies on BSD.

BSD (2019)

Since Alex Donnachie never had a red bike before and the holiday spirit was on full whack (plus, the time for a new bike) he decided to finally take the plunge.

Also, Alex mentions that he really likes the Jonesin’ pedals because it’s a lot easier to spot the grinding and non-grinding sides. (Yes, that’s a unique specialty of Sam Jones‘ signature plastic pedals.)

BSD (2018)

If you still remember, Alex snapped his ACL back in 2017, so spent the entire year easier bike-wise, but heavier physio-wise.

And then, for 2018, he built this RAD setup featuring a purple haze frame with gum tires and grips.

Alex also says that he really digs David Grant‘s signature Dunks grips because they are thin.

Check the rest on BSD’s official website.

DIG (2017)

Wes McGrath caught up with Alex on a trip in San Francisco to do this rad bike check and interview, giving you a more in-depth look at his bike at the time.

Alex shares the difference between his signature DonnaSqueak and DonnaStreet tires, name choices for his signature parts, and more.

Hit up the DIG website to get the “more” part.

TCU (2017)

Here’s the only Alex Donnachie video bike check I managed to find, shot for The Come Up BMX.

Alex has some trouble listing all the parts – he says that doing the bike check in front of a camera is a lot harder than it looks.

But he still kills it!

And to make things even hotter, Francis Castro also shot a bunch of amazing riding clips and laced it all together into this awesome video. Enjoy!
