Stoked on the looks of the 2017 Radio Bikes Co Griffin AM dirt jumper.

We are pretty pumped on this new 26″ complete dirt jumper from Radio Bikes Co. Some of you may not be familiar with Radio Bikes Co but you are definitely familiar with some of their related brands. Radio comes to us from the We Make Things group out of Germany. Which is the same company that brings We The People, Eclat, Salt, Salt Plus, FUSE, Almond and Bombtrack to the world. So yeah these guys definitely know their way around the bike world and know how to design some solid parts and bikes.

We are right this minute working on a full review of the band new 2017 Radio Bikes Co Griffin. This is one of two 26″ dirt jumper models from Radio. The Griffin that we are reviewing comes with a steel frame and retails at just $799 usd. But they will also have two other models called the Fiend at $599.99usd and then the higher end Griffin Pro with a Aluminum frame, Rock Shox Argyle R which will sell for about $1229.99 usd. Here’s a shot of the two other models…

As you saw in the list above the designers and riders at We Make Things definitely know how to make really good products. The Radio Bikes Co Griffin definitely benefits from the years of experience this group has from making some of the best BMX goods out there. For a complete dirt jumper under $1000 the Radio Bike Co Griffin looks and rides like a much better build. The geometry is absolutely spot on and of course the parts are not pro level but they all felt solid, work well together and look good. Speaking of geometry here is a run down.

TOP TUBE LENGTH 22.6″
CHAIN STAY LENGTH 15.4″
HEAD TUBE ANGLE 71.5°
