Colin Varanyak Bike Check [Fiend] 2023

I bring you the current Colin Varanyak bike check and will keep updating it so you never miss his fresh setup again.

Colin is a beast, pulling burly stuff but at the same time isn’t a stranger to technical stunts.

His bike is all about Fiend and Premium with a bunch of signature parts on it, like frame, seat and rim.

I also like it very much that Colin usually goes with darker colors. (Yes, just because I like it all-black 🙂 )

Let’s get right into it.

By the way: Colin is 5’10” and approx. 155lbs.

2023 Bike Check

With a video bike check that’s ten minutes long, you know you’ll get an in-depth overview of it, which Colin handles like a champ.

I like it when a rider shares more information about each part with you instead of just listing them as quickly as possible.

Did you know that Colin rides 155mm cranks?

Unfortunately, these are samples, which may never be available, so when he breaks them, he’ll go back to 160mm.

Why so short? Because his frame has a short rear, and he doesn’t like the feel of hitting the peg with his back foot.

By the way, I really hope Colin will start dropping more videos on his YouTube channel again.

What I Ride (2018)

The once traditional “What I Ride” series from Ride BMX is no more, but it’s still live on YouTube, which is awesome.

Here’s Colin’s setup from 2018, which is built of Fiend and Animal parts.

He’s riding his signature Fiend Varanyak frame, which, according to Colin, is a user-friendly frame with a short chainstay and a steeper headtube.

Why does this make his BMX street frame more user-friendly? Because it allows beginners to learn bunnyhops and manuals easier and play with the front-end stuff more comfortably.

But at the same time, Colin’s Fiend frame is perfect for the most advanced riders.

You’ll also find his signature Animal bars, Fiend BMX seat and (then) Animal prototype BMX front wheels.
