We've been following Viki
's liaison with Orbea Bikes
closely and now they finally released some more information. The Orbea Rude
is actually a complete bike
designed for freestyle
: "Is it possible to design a bike to enjoy the magic and balance of Flatland, the adrenaline of Street and the technique of Park? The frame and components of the new Rude have been carefully selected to let riders pick their own style and enjoy the different disciplines of BMX."
The complete bikes comes in 2 different version: Rude 10
and Rude 20
. The Rude 10 appears to be the premium version that comes with sealed bearings and heat-treated parts. The frame seems be identical as far as the geometry is concerned. Both versions are available with 3 different frame sizes
