I bought my 2013 black SE OM Flyer bike brand new from Ebay. It arrived in a box which means I had to assemble it. It took me an hour roughly and after a few rides I went through on all bolts to make sure they are tight. Since then (a year ago) all I've done is lubricated the chain regularly and adjusted chain tension once. Given it's simplicity it's not a high maintenance bike.
The bike looks really amazing. It's a bigger brother of a 20" BMX. Complete with the padding it's an awesome retro bike.
Riding the bike feels like a BMX but it's ...
Retro blast and a half with quality and style that turns heads
This is a comfortable, light bike to cruise around on or even race if you wanted to. When I was looking to buy a cruiser, I checked out the quadangle (sentimental as I owned a 20" in the 80's). Price won out on the day though, and I picked up the OM on special for $599 which was $250 less than the quad. The component spec on both bikes was identical and quite exceptional for the price. Welds on the frame are top notch and I was told that they use the original frame jigs so geometry is nice. As I'm 6'3" I needed a slightly longer layback seatpos...t and slightly higher handlebars for cruising. Riding the OM with my son on his bmx is a blast from the past. Whether on street or the dirt, this bike is tough, stylish and fun. Couldn't be happier. chrome finish, attention to detail, sealed bearings and cromo all round-bliss!
