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.
