Destroy Bicycles 26″ Fixed Freestyle

Fixed freestyle riding is still relatively new, especially when it comes to purpose-built framesets. Evolution of the sport continues, with more and more riders going towards smaller and stronger 26″ wheels as opposed to the 700c size common on the track bikes it all started on. The latest addition to the 26″ fixed freestyle mix is from Destroy Bicycles, as seen at the SF Bike Expo. It features sleeved top and downtubes rather than gussets, along with a sleeved seatstay joint for further extra strength at high stress, prone-to-breaking areas. While I missed my journalistic duty of pictures of the custom modified Profile hub with 14mm non-slotted axle, trust me, it exists along with the track ends to accept it. The Destroy Bicycles site is under construction at the moment, but you can email owner/builder/rider Sean for more information.

    I guess it’s just me… and seriously I don’t want to hate on whatever makes people happy… but this thing looks beat with the ugly stick. It looks like a dirt jumping bike designed for smashing nuts. To me it seems the least practical aspects of a mountain bike and a track bike mashed together. Am I missing something?

    yuck. I don’t get fixedgearfreestyle. Use a bike for what it’s best fitted to due. Fixed for speed/track/whatever, bmx for rad tricks. You can’t have everything.

    You can have everything! I got to check out this bike at the expo. It was pretty sick.

    dude, i saw this at the expo. i got to talk to the owner (sean) and i am amazed by this bike for a few reasons.

    1) it was literally, LITERALLY, the very first bike he EVER built- from the ground up. he welded it, designed it all his self.. that is due for some respect.

    2) it’s innovative. sean met all the demands a fixed fs rider wants. like 0bb, 14mm rear hub/dropouts, and full clearance- even with 165′s

    lastly, i agree the bike aesthetically may not be to your liking but hey, come on, it’s a first build for the man! i say, power to you sean! most people are far too lazy to even attempt to fully create build a frame, most just wait, and wait, and wait for a new factory bike, and even then complain when it’s not to their liking.

    stay up destroy!

    yeah bmx bikes are great and all but you cant ride across town on them either .. fgfs bike you can. I just hate how your legs are smashed on a bmx bike. plus a lot of people and friends of mine use fgfs frames for bike polo, thsy are built like tanks. ive been wanting to get a destroy for a while.. their bikes are high quality and can take a beating. and as far as dirt jumping goes thats a whole different set up as far as geometry goes
