I love this bike its supa rad! but not as a fixed gear bike, it would be super fun to burn about on! the red finish is rad and the over all build quality of Volume is what you expect… sick!

Looks like a mighty fine big BMX, MTB thing and I bet it would ride real nice on a freewheel… still, this is a sexy looking FGFS bike.
This old chestnut! with the continued progression of FGFS and a many people switching to 26″ fixed, its understandable bike companies are trying to get their heads around which direction its going… I think companies like Grime offering their ‘Yo Mang’ frame as a 26″ and 700c version is the way as its mostly down to personal preference. Personally I’m gonna stick to 700c fixed, as I have a 26″ DJ bike and will be getting a new BMX for the park and street! Join in the debate this time over on Volumes website!
I’m quite excited by this bike frame! now be in the chance to win a V1!

When I first saw this frame earlier this week I was pretty sure it wasn’t designed specifically as a 26″ fixed freestyle frame, but I’m sure quite a few people did and will give it a try… but why fixed? I really like this bike and I’d prefer to ride it with a free wheel as a big bmx! rad!
Anyway what Volume say:
“Apparently our new Vandal frame has gotten a ton of feedback from all sorts of peeps in the industry, I mean blogs. Is it a FGFS or a DJ? The Vandal is basically our Sledgehammer 26″ BMX, except simplified. We’re not saying it’s one or the other. It’s a 26″ frame that was designed to easily maneuver around for whatever you ride; fixed, dirt or just cruise the curbs.”
