Are you searching for the current Johnny Raekes bike check?

Search no more, bro.

I managed to put together his latest setup that Johnny uses for all his insanely technical riding stunts.

Johnny has a signature Fiend frame and 4-pc BMX bars mixed with other Fiend and Odyssey parts.

What’s interesting to me is that his street BMX frame isn’t as insanely technical-oriented as some other pro frames are.

But Johnny is doing his own unique thing, thus, having a unique frame. I really like the 9.5″ standover height!

Hey, don’t get me wrong, it’s still VERY responsive.

What I Ride (2018)

In this Ride BMX video bike check, Johnny takes us through his all-black Fiend Colin Varanyak bike. This is exactly how I like my bike to be!

Johnny also explains that he likes to ride his chain pretty loose but not too loose to the point that it’s hitting his frame (because he can’t stand that noise).

He even has his cranks pretty loose because of crankflips.

Moreover, he has 160mm cranks, which allows him to keep his feet closer together, making him feel more confident.

Animal Bike Check (2017)

Animal has a bunch of really great bike shots on their site of Johnny’s bike check from 2017.

Even though Johnny doesn’t always run a black bike, it looks like he prefers it the most.

Along with the complete parts list and images, you can also read a short interview about his build.

Raekes speaks about his favorite parts, Rat Trap pedals, GLH tires, Empire State bars and how picky he is about the responsiveness of his bike. Go check it on Animal.
