22' bike?

No. It's a 20 inch wheel bike. This bike is exactly to Eddie's specs. He designed it himself with a lot of time and effort.

Stay tuned. More info to come soon.

I received some of these EF stickers which I'm pretty sure this is or if not very similar to what the head badge will look like.

I also received  a neat card that has a cool design drawn by artist "Kevin Tyler. " Not sure who that is, but this card is cool. It's a mock up of a drivers license, but its a license to ride and its Eddie back in the day. Check it out.


Here is the "EF" logo that will be very similar if not the actual head tube logo design. This picture is just about the identical size of the sticker.

Here is the double sided card. It's the exact size of a playing card, or a drivers license of the art work on one side and a BMX license to ride of Eddie back in the day.

I can not sit still. I have been tested for A.D.D. and A.D.H.D. and have neither. I don't need coffee, I just need a B.M.X. or surfboard to consistently ride and I'll be happy. smile

Not many will buy it....kind of neat I guess. Not trying to act negative but let's be serious here....he's a pioneer for sure but 30 years later?  I could be wrong...

Crazy you would say that considering this is a collector website with plenty of Eddie fans and many would probably love a chance to ride something that looks retro but rides newschool. Lots of other companies out there already making $ doing it because it sells.
Let's face it, many of us want to reconnect with a time when we had a great time with great friends and no grown up worries. And if buying a f/f designed by one of our icons BITD gets us any closer to that time then more power to the supplier meeting the demand! He's a little late but I think he'll be successful. I only hope he makes it with a 20.5" tt or bigger! I can't ride tiny bikes anymore!
Just look at Skyway, SE, Haro and Hutch... all making retro and tapping into a market that has a strong demand because we're all making more money than we were when we were teenagers.
Good Luck EF! Looking forward to seeing the specs on it.

Just to be clear, you are wrong smile
Eddie has and continues to be an importnat ambassador to the sport. His legendary status is only rivaled by his tremendous kindness and his humbleness. He is a mensch among men. In my opinion he deserves nothing but our respect, and I for one will support this. Also, these frames will be USA made, and that is something also worth celebrating.

I'm just a nobody in the world of bmx, but Eddie approached me at the last show at Whittier Narrows when I was selling some stuff. He was looking at a pair of nearly new graphite tuffs I was selling along with a bunch of new and used parts. We must have talked for a solid 15-20 minutes. He was bouncing some ideas off me especially about a new style of brakes. The only thing I remember about that part was that I seemed to have some idea he liked (have no idea what it was anymore). Again, I truly am nobody anybody knows in the bmx world other than maybe a few that know me by sight from selling and trading at shows here and there and that's about it. He just seemed like as a down to earth guy who wanted to talk bmx and where it might be headed. He valued what I had to say and it was a nice conversation. It wasn't until the last 5 minutes or so when I finally said, "You're Eddie, right?" that he introduced himself and talked a bit about coming out with a bike in the not too distant future. He had another guy that joined him at about that point who seemed to be a frame builder and likely someone well known, but not to me. So I can attest to this statement. "His legendary status is only rivaled by his tremendous kindness and his humbleness."

Re: EDDIE FIOLA "EF" BRAND BIKE MADE BY TRUE TORCH COMING SOON. VERY RAD!

I wasnt much of a Fiola fan bitd.
I like that he is still active in the hobby.
Seems like a reasonable bike for a 40+ year old guy to ride.
Something with some new benefits while still feeling like an old bike.
Just what I need.

Already been done by Knight though....

Just curious,, did Knight actually sell any of those 20" Proformer at all ? How many of them were built ? According to their website, their last update on the Proformer retro project was at 8th April 2011 last year ! Furthermore, I haven't seen any of them build up so far .

Never said he wasn't any of those things or disagreed with them. It's also irrelevant to bike sales.

George Foreman was a great boxer but I never purchased one of his grills, just saying. I hope I am wrong...

Re: EDDIE FIOLA "EF" BRAND BIKE MADE BY TRUE TORCH COMING SOON. VERY RAD!

Meh.  I don't really see the point.  Eddie was the only one that liked that geometry BITD.  It's cool for a booze cruiser, but those performers aren't that expensive, so why not just get an old performer if that's what you want?  If you want a new school thrasher, there are already plenty of bikes with better geometry for that.

It's just cool Eddie is still involved with BMX when a lot of other old icons just disappeared! Hell all most of us Museum guys never made a buck from it it's just about the love if riding !

I love how people pontificate if it doesnt fit "their" standards or their desires.

Its a bike Eddie designed with his name on it. Theres a place for it in the market, if you dont want one, dont buy it. Just live and let live, people.

I may look into purchasing one, who knows. Im excited to see BMX having more options nearly every month.
