    The frame on that doesnt look like any Fly I've ever seen; I've never seen one with the toptube extending past the seatpost like that. Those don't look like Fly forks to me, either.

    Sorry, but you're not going to find a freestyle bike that weighs 20lbs in general, much less one that cheap. My bike weighed 24.5lbs (the last time I checked), and it cost me over a grand.

    Mar-09-06
    A: yes it can i dont own them but they can be bought and put on. if interested pounce on this deal its a 400$ bike out of store it wont be available...more

    Q: hey, when u said it weighed 17 lbs, is that the whole bike or just the frame? thanks
    Mar-09-06
    A: the whole thing. very light

    Q: how much do you think a sprocket would cost please be honest? thanks again
    Mar-06-06
    A: brand new in store about 50$ im sure you could find one much cheaper on ebay say 10 or 20$

    Q: Can you find out and tell me how much the frame or the entire bike ways? thanks.
    Mar-06-06
    A: roughly 17 lbs. sorry i did not specify
    17lbs? My ass. Maybe without the cranks, chain, sprocket, and frame.

    lol. thats y i really didnt want to buy a bike off of ebay, but there is only one bike shop close to where i live, and they are wayyyyyy overprice. bikes you can get brand new online from the factory for 200 they sell for 400 or 500.

    400 - 500 for a good complete bike is pretty normal...you can get entry-level ones with really heavy 1 pc. cranks for around 250-300 (this is in canadian dollars, BTW).

    but like someone else said, you won't find a BMX around 20 lbs ANYWHERE...and if you do, it'll be expensive.

    i think you need to set your sights a bit lower on price or weight.

    i dont even care if it weighs more than 20, but my old bike was a piece of crap, and it weighed about 50. the rims also snapped, so i decided to get a new one. but thaT WAS MY FIRST BMX BIKE AND ONLY COST LIKE 100 OR 150, SO IT LASTED FOR LONG ENOUGH. I JUST WANTED TO MAKE SURE THAT MY NEXT BIKE WOULD BE PREATTY GOOD, BECUASE ONCE IT GET THAT ONE MY PARENTS ARENT GONNA GIVE ME ANY MONEY FOR A NEW BIKE FOR A WHILE.

    the frame in that 1st link you put up does look like a Fly frame they sold for a while(i almost bought one when they were selling it). I'll try to find the name. they were in DansComp a while back. although i threw away all my old Danscomp catalogs last week ill see if i can find one i missed.

    ok thanks alot. my email is, starwolf738@aol.com
    so you can send it to there, or just post it if you find it. thanks



    anyway as of now what do you think would be a better buy,

    the fly 02
    or the haro freestyle?
    the haro is alot cheaper, but it needs a new sprocket, and possibly brakes if it dont come with them.

    thanks for every1's help

    i couldnt find any old catalogs so i looked in the back of an old RideBMX mag because i would recognize the name. its the Fly "Estampedia" frame. I couldnt find a pic but i remember the top tube extending a little past the seattube, the gussets on the top and down tubes and those giant dropouts. it also came in tan
    i agree with Beerman about the fork. doesnt look like Fly
