Are you ready to peek at the latest Devon Smillie bike check? I’m always down.
There must be something about his bike, making all those insanely technical bike stunts even possible. Or is it?
Yes, Devon is just that good.
Since he’s now riding for Cult (he previously rode for Fly Bikes) exclusively, that’s what his bike is all about.
A beautiful and innovative street machine meant to go extremely TECH.
Are you ready?

Old Devon Smillie Bike Checks
1. 2023 Source BMX Bike Check
Devon has been on Cult for a good minute now, and here’s a video bike check Source BMX, in collaboration with Van Homan, did during the Battle Of Hastings.
This is a long one – but that’s a GOOD thing.
Devon walks you through every part that he rides and also explains why he rides it, starting with Brandon Begin‘s signature frame.
Moreover, he likes the look of a slim seat, but he went with the mid version since he relies on the seat cushioning when pinching the seat for barspins.
Moreover, he keeps his front end close to the body with an 18mm fork offset and 46mm steam reach, saying it’s better for barspins, nose manuals and other tech stuff he does.
Anyway, hit the play button above for more insights into Devon’s tech machine.
2. 2022 Bike Check
It’s been a while since the last video bike check Devon did but thought of doing it with his latest Fly setup.
This thing looks really fresh.
It’s a complete Fly build with his signature and non-signature parts.
Devon also introduces the guard sprocket and tells you why he likes to ride the rear wheel slightly extended and not fully slammed.
He also treats you to a few nice and buttery riding clips at the end to seal the deal with style.

4. 2020 Bike Check
This dialed red machine is dope (even though I’m an all-black-bike kinda person).
While Fly doesn’t have an entire parts list ready for you they still have some really nice shots of his bike from 2020. Emphasizing his signature parts.
But you get a short interview about his (super) low PSI, COVID, switching from cassette to freecoaster, and more.
5. 2019 Bike Check
Take a closer look at Devon Smillie’s bike check from 2019 on Vital. This was the period when Devon was still on Eclat, so you can expect quite some parts from them as well.
What you’ll notice is that he’s riding a 20.7″ street frame. However, he seems to be preferring 21″ more since that’s the top tube frame length that we see him riding more often.
He also says he cuts his bars to 28″ and runs his back tire backwards. I wonder what the deal with the tire is?
6. 2017 Bike Check
This one is exactly how I like my bike to be – ALL BLACK. Such a rad looking Fly Fuego setup in 21″ with a lot of Eclat parts.
His forks have 30mm offset and his signature (2 piece version) bars are 9.5″ rise.
Along with the parts list and pics, DIG also posted a short but sweet interview with Devon. He talks about his parents’ 110% support when younger, what he loves about BMX the most and why he even chose BMX and not some other sport.
Also, he expresses his respect for scooters, which I find really COOL!
7. 2016 Bike Check
Even though colored tires are not my thing, these white ones look pretty rad. Eclat posted this Devon Smillie bike check in 2016, and it looks too good to skip it.
I wish they’d include some close-up shots of his build just because I like checking bikes so much.
But the parts list will do it. Note: Devon’s riding his signature bar in 9″ rise. It’s cool to see that a rider likes to switch things up from time to time, trying new things.
Hey, you’ll never know if you don’t try.
