2004 Urban Menace Commando 26

Unique 26" Urban Commando Hybrid, designed by Garry Silva.

This is my 26" Urban Commando. I love this bike and ride the snot out of it. It's a nice hybrid between a BMX and a Mountain Bike... A wicked all around, general thrasher. I've never seen another one anywhere. It was sold as a limited edition California bike made by Garry Silva. It's really sweet to ride, great to wheelie on and do a little off roading urban stuff... The internal 7 speed Nexus is really nice for hills etc. The frame is a 7000 Series heat treated aluminum monocoque tubing design and the TIG welds are really outstanding. The frame also has a braze-on disc brake hanger. The forks are 1 1/8 inch, 4130 Chromoly Steel "Crown Style" with the Aluminum Crown in 3 PC Alloy. It has a Phat Power Disc V-Brake rear and alloy crown Disc Brake front. The bars are aluminum MX style and I recently swapped out the OG chopper style leather grips for a pair of black Hunt Wildes. I put fenders on it because I used it in the rain quite a bit when I lived up in BC. Everything else is stock. A very reliable and fun bike that has seen many miles and never let's me down...

I bought this 5 years ago when I lived on the west coast of Canada in Victoria, British Columbia. It was special ordered from California by a customer from a local bike shop. The buyer missed some payments and the bike shop took it back and I bought it from them.

Thing is I have been looking for this bike everywhere online and nothing comes up, was it some type of limited edition bike? I really like it and it looks like it would be fun to ride.

Re: 2004 Urban Menace Commando 26

Glad you dig it Mikey. It is really fun to ride and it's made very well. The longer I've had this bike, the more I love it. I ride it all the time and it just seems to get better.

Sadly, I'm told there were only a handful of these made. I've also looked online for more info and it seems there is none. Too bad, because it really is a great design.

Re: 2004 Urban Menace Commando 26

That is sad, I can understand why they only made a handful thinking maybe that it would not catch on but I definitely like the hybrid idea,It seems to give the best of both worlds.

You're right dawg, Garry Silva used to work for Phat.

Do you have one of these Urban Commandos something else they made?

This is a sweet ride bro! I love bikes that push the envelope of conservatism but aren't ridiculous.
