fly bmx frames

Do you want to build a new setup and search for the best Fly BMX frames?

Today, I bring you their latest line of frames that you can get in many different colors and top tube lengths.

Fly is a BMX company from Spain (it all started in 1999 in Vigo) with a more INNOVATIVE approach to everything they do.

Even though they are more into style, flow, trails, and bowls, you can also get yourself a solid street frame (Courage & Smillie approved!).

Best Fly BMX Frames

Note: Frames are listed in no particular order. (The 1st one is not necessarily better than the 5th one – they’re all fantastic!)

1. Aire

fly aire frame
The Aire 3 Frame from Fly Bikes is Larry Edgar’s signature model with the company which did see some changes from the original to the third version.

The frame has new tubing specs meant to reduce weight without sacrificing strength and now comes in 20.8” with a 13” chainstay versus the 13.8” chainstay on the larger top tube lengths.

The frame features internal and external gussets, investment cast dropouts with built-in chain tensioners, and is drilled for gyro tabs.

If you are buying to use brakes, one thing to keep in mind is that the brake kit is not included with the frame.

Aire specs:

  • Top Tube Length: 20.8” – 21” – 21.8”
  • Head Tube: 74.5°
  • Seat Tube Angle: 71°
  • ChainStay Length: 13” @ 20.8” / 13.8 @ 21”/21.8”
  • Standover: 9.25”
  • BB Height: 11.5”
  • Weight: 5.47 lbs / 21”
  • Price: $439 (may vary)

2. Fuego

The Fuego frame from Fly is Devon Smillie’s signature frame with the company that is currently on its second iteration.

The Fuego 2 frame changes up the original by being brakeless only and utilizing different tubing specs that, according to Fly, “Help reduce the overall weight – without sacrificing any of the strength.”

The frame has external gussets on both top/bottom tubes and investment cast dropouts with integrated chain tensioners and an integrated seat post clamp.

The Fuego comes in 3 different top tube sizes and has a steep head tube with a shorter rear end and a higher bottom bracket height to dial it in for Devon’s extremely technical riding!

Fuego specs:

  • Top Tube Length: 20.2” – 20.6” – 21”
  • Head Tube: 75.5° / 4.45”
  • Seat Tube Angle: 71°
  • ChainStay Length: 12.8”
  • Standover: 9.25”
  • BB Height: 11.75”
  • Weight: 5.08 lbs / 21”
  • Price: $439 (may vary)

3. Sierra

fly sierra frame
Here is Sergio Layos’ signature frame from Fly Bikes which is called the Sierra Frame. This frame has been updated over the previous version with a change in head tube angle to 75°.

On the Sierra Frame, you will find internal and external gussets on both top and down tube and investment cast dropouts with built-in chain tensioners.

There is removable brake hardware on the frame, and the brakes are where there is a major difference between this and almost all other frames in the modern BMX park geometry space.

The Fly Sierra frame features chainstay brakes, which means that the brake mounts are located on the chainstay tubes rather than the seat stay tubes, but the brake kit is not included with the frame.

Sierra specs:

  • Top Tube Length: 20.6” – 21” – 21.4”
  • Head Tube: 75° / 4.45”
  • Seat Tube Angle: 71°
  • ChainStay Length: 13.6”
  • Standover: 8.75”
  • BB Height: 11.5”
  • Weight: 4.85 lbs
  • Price: $439 (may vary)

4. Savanna

The FlyBikes Savanna 3 frame is the update to Courage Adams’ original Savanna frame.

The geometry on the Savanna 3 frame is the same as the original, but the frame does have updates that shed a little weight while retaining strength.

It has external as well as internal gussets with tapered and multi-butted tubing. The Savanna 3 also has investment cast dropouts with built-in chain tensioners and an investment cast seat post clamp.

This is a brakeless frame, so there is no brake hardware and nowhere to go.

Savanna specs:

  • Top Tube Length: 20.2” – 20.6” – 21”
  • Head Tube: 75.5° / 4.45”
  • Seat Tube Angle: 71°
  • ChainStay Length: 13”
  • Standover: 9.25”
  • BB Height: 11.75”
  • Weight: 5.3 lbs
  • Price: $439 (may vary)

5. Sierra 18”

fly sierra 18 frame
Sierra 18” frame is Fly Bikes’ entry into the 18” BMX frame space. This frame keeps the look of Sergio Layos’ personal Sierra frame but just in an 18” form factor.

This may be the only aftermarket 18” freestyle BMX frame with chainstay brake mounts short of anything custom-built.

Unfortunately, the brake mounts are not included with the frame, but it is rad to see chainstay brakes on a bike geared toward younger shredders.

One thing to keep in mind with the Sierra 18” is that it uses a Spanish bottom bracket rather than the more common mid-bottom bracket.

The bottom bracket is included with options between 22mm and 24mm, which you can choose during checkout.

Sierra 18” specs:

  • Top Tube Length: 18.7”
  • Head Tube: 75° / 4”
  • Seat Tube Angle: 71°
  • ChainStay Length: 12.2”
  • Standover: 8”
  • BB Height: 10.5”
  • Weight: 4.3 lbs
  • Price: $439 (may vary)
