5 Best Fiend BMX Frames (In 2022)

fiend bmx frames

My best-of Fiend BMX frames review will come in very handy if you are a heavily street-oriented rider.

Everyone knows that Fiend is a rider-owned bike company.

Not just any rider, it’s Garrett Reynolds’!

The story of Fiend started in 2011 with a promotional video.

That’s it!

It all took off from there.

We’re now STOKED to bring you this collection of their best street frames.

Best Fiend BMX Frames

Note: Frames are listed in no particular order. (The 1st one is not necessarily better than the 4th one – all are DOPE!)

1. Raekes

If technical, wild and just overall insane riding is what you’re after, Johnny Raekes‘ signature Fiend frame might be the perfect solution for you.

I comes in three sizes and two colors (the trans earth green look vivid!) with removable brake mounts (which don’t come with the frame.)

What I really like about the frame is the higher standover at 9.5″ and the insane, 8mm thick investment cast dropouts.

Also, Raekes frame has ovalized down tube and chain stays, which boosts its strength.

This one is for tech wizards with a short rear-end, steep front-end and overall built very solid!

Raekes specs:

  • Top Tube Length – 20.6” – 20.8” – 21”
  • Head Tube – 75.5°
  • Seat Tube Angle – 71°
  • ChainStay Length – 112.9”
  • Standover – 9.5”
  • BB Height – 11.6”
  • Weight – 5.2 lbs 20.75”
  • Price: $389.99 (may vary)

2. Mills

If you know, you know. I’m speaking about the graphics on Lewis Mills‘s signature Fiend frame. (Hint: Scarface.)

This beast of a frame means serious business. It’s a street machine that you can easily use for park riding, too. (Even trails, as that’s what Lewis does from time to time, too.)

The frame comes in four different top tube lengths, covering pretty much every rider out there.

It features a 4130 heat-treated chromoly tubing with internal gussets for extra strength.

Also, the Mills frame comes with 8mm thick dropouts with built-in chain tensioners. Strong AF!

Mills specs:

  • Top Tube Length – 20.5” – 20.75” – 21” – 21.25”
  • Head Tube – 75.5°
  • Seat Tube Angle – 71°
  • ChainStay Length – 13.1”
  • Standover – 9.5”
  • BB Height – 11.625”
  • Weight – 5 lbs 20.75”
  • Price: $329.99 (may vary)

Fiend’s Morrow V4 frame is the fourth iteration of Ty Morrow’s signature frame from Fiend. The frame has external gussets on both the top/down tube as well as a double-butted top tube.

The down tube uses double-butted oval tubing and the seat tube is externally butted.

At 11.625”, the bottom bracket height is lower than average for the modern street geometry category, while the 75.5° heat tube and 12.9” chainstay fit the category well.

The Morrow V4 is a brakeless frame with chain tensioners built into the 6mm thick heat-treated dropouts.
