Bike Check – Radio Bombtrack
Radio Bikes is a company based out of Cologne, Germany. They currently have a large selection of BMX bikes and components in their line, and in the last couple years have been busting into the Fixed Gear Freestyle market (Mainly in Europe). I have been in touch with the folks who are spearheading the Bombtrack project and I find they are very knowledgeable and excited about the future of Fixed Freestyle; not something I expected from a company with a rich BMX history. It turns out the people behind this particular frame are fixed riders. Their sponsored rider, Simon “Gomok” Andraca has played a big part in development and it really shows.
The Bombtrack is in-line with all of the current necessities of a modern fixed freestyle bike. It features a negative bb drop, sloping top tube, 14mm dropouts, it comfortably fits 2.3 inch tires and 26″ wheels. I have been able to feel a positive difference when it comes to 180’s, full cabs, and hops in general. I am loving the S&M 5″ rise bars. They are super wide, high, and strong. Thanks to Shad at GOODS BMX for helping me find the right bar/stem combo! Another new component that I need to mention is the Zontrac straps; they hold their shape amazing and are the thickest, stiffest straps I have ridden thus far.
