Product Blog: Radio Bikes Darko 2018 Complete Bike

Available in a choice of 20.5” or 21” top tube lengths, the Darko is a well spec’d, and vibrant bike for the new-school street shredder. The frame features street geometry based on the NEMESIS aftermarket frame with a taller standover height, shorter chainstays, and a steeper headtube angle.


The frame also comes with fully removable brake hardware allowing you to customize the bike to your riding style and achieve a clean brakeless look. You’ll find all the latest aftermarket parts from Radio, Salt, and Saltplus on the Darko, including the new Radio Frequency XL flangeless grips and the high rise 33mm Pro stem and 2.35” Tracer tires from Salt.


This amazingly stacked machine is finished off with a fat padded combo seat and comes in two fine colorways, Matt Black & Neon Yellow.
