Haro La Bastille with Odyssey / GSport Legit Parts Kit

Recently, our friend Joey Branford tapped us to help build his flagship flatland bike. Joey performs with several BMX Stunt Teams on the East Coast and wanted a build-to-end-all-builds. Joey found the Haro La Bastille frame to have the geometry he was in search of, notably a rear end measuring 13.5″+ (shout-out to Brett Downs!) The majority of the components happen to be Odyssey / GSport, which are by far some of the most refined, engineered and strongest the BMX world has to offer (shout out to Odyssey / GSport / OTX!) The wheels were expertly prepped and built at Radius Bike Shop, and they are world-class. The complete build is as follows:

I rode this bike and it’s solid and silky smooth. The Haro La Bastille has great geometry and is top notch. I personally ride a S&M Intrikat, and this Haro immediately felt familiar. Everything came together seamlessly to create this wonderful machine…enjoy Joey!
