2014 Colony Prody Limited Edition

"A 19" Prody flatland build in day-glo yellow? Good thinking Max!" - Agent 99


Prody; n. [pr. proddy] 4130 chromoly, toptube platform, bonafide #BNEBMX local hero.
The Prody 20th Anniversary frame by Colony is essentially a tribute to the original Brisbane made Prody frame from 1993 designed by Clint Millar (founder of Colony BMX) and Michael Canfield. This limited edition of 100 sees the return of the iconic top tube platform while benefiting from modern geometry and contemporary features (ie. integrated headset, mid BB and integrated seat post clamp – scroll down more tech info and frame specs).
I feel so honoured to have one of these frames. AND, as a long time fan of the spy classic Get Smart and Barbara Feldon’s iconic portrayal of Agent 99, I’m super stoked to have scored frame #99/100! Those familiar with my M.O. will know that when I’m as excited as this about a frame it’ll never be a wall mounted trophy piece gathering dust in the name of posterity – I'll build the shizzle out of it then I'll ride the b’jeezus out of it. Life’s too short to not ride rad bikes!

AMAZING job.  Both inspires, and intimidates me, about building my own Prody frame.  Really cool and impressive all around.
