Chase Hawk's Cult Bad Boy setup
Chase Hawk's Cult Bad Boy
Chase Hawk's new American-made signature Bad Boy frame is only available in flat black, with custom graphics created by Adam Roye. The frame is available in a variety of top tube sizes, with a 9-inch standover height, 13.55 inch chainstays and a 75 degree head tube angle.
Hawk bars, Faith grips
Non-signature parts on Chase's bike are few and far between. Chase's signature Hawk bars from Cult feature 100% heat-treated and butted chromoly, with an 8.1 inch rise. The bars come stock at 28 inches wide, with 4 degrees of upsweep and 10 degrees of backsweep. Rounding out the package are US-made Cult Faith grips.
Odyssey Tomahawk stem
The Tomahawk is based around a list of front-load features that Chase Hawk requested and it is the first front-load stem to use convergent bolt axes for the front cap. This allows the stem to have the separate adjustability and "look" of a traditional four bolt front-loader, but with a smoother overall shape.
Odyssey Antigram hub
The Antigram is a 36-H rear hub that is strong, light and reasonably priced with in-bound axle bolts that is both RHD/LHD switchable and hub guard compatible. Odyssey also sells the Antigram hub laced up to a Hazard Lite rim as a complete wheel for those of us without the professional wheel building expertise of Tom at Empire BMX.
Odyssey Hawk tires
The Hawk tire from Odyssey is their new slick-style tire, and it clocks in at a whopping 2.40 inch width, which as far as we can tell, is the biggest tire you can buy in BMX right now. You might think it's too big to fit in the rear end of a frame, but guess again -- it fits with ease. And yes, Chase Hawk uses valve caps.
Tomahawk stem profile
The Tomahawk makes use of the steerer tube clamping design that is found in Odyssey's Elementarystem. With this unique configuration, the locking bolt for the fork's steerer tube remains straight during tightening. The stem's fully internal clamp design also means that the back of the body can be bolt-free, and knee-friendly.
Yup, Chase's new Cult signature frame might have some of the sickest graphics in BMX right now. That is, if you're into doom metal.
Based on the classic Odyssey Z-915 sprocket from the mid-1990s, Chase Hawk's C-512 signature sprocket keeps things as simple and straight-forward as possible. Incisor Teeth for increased strength and reduced wear. Chase also rides Odyssey's Thunderbolt cranks in the 180mm length.
Cult embossed gussets on the top and down tube provide increased strength to the front end of the frame.

Chase pays homage to one of the all-time greats in BMX: Mike Aitken. The Odyssey Aitken Pivotal saddle is modeled after vintage BMX seats of the '80s, with proven Pivotal technology.
Odyssey Twisted PC pedals
Odyssey's Twisted PC pedals are simple, lightweight, inexpensive and designed around a durable plastic-body. They are available in a limitless supply of colors, but Chase keeps it simple.
Odyssey Hawk tires
According to Odyssey, "The 2.40 fatty size (the biggest we make) is amazing for carving and some of our dudes are running it front and back." Hawk tires will also be the first tires Odyssey offers with a whitewall, which is coming soon.
