To be completely honest - if you're looking for a BMX bike that's less than $850, the Radio Valac 2020 model is just about impossible to go past - with a long list of features, this bike from Radio BMX would just about sell itself.
But, since the Radio Valac bike doesn't talk (surprising, considering the rest of the features..), I better give you a few of them.
There is no other BMX bike at this price point that offers a fully sealed bearing wheelset with double wall rims. No other bike offers removable brake mounts, along with a full chromoly front end; bars and forks. No other bike offers up a very responsive 76 degree head angle (at this price) to allow spinning tricks to be easier.
Lastly, no other BMX bike offers an insanely good-looking mint/purple fade colour, stacked with black parts.
The Radio Valac 2020 bike is unlike any other.. Unless you want to pay a lot more
