    Obvious question -- did you ask the shop? – David Richerby Mar 8 '19 at 19:58

    The logo might be based around the Greek letter psi (Ψ). Unfortunately, if you try to Google for something like "bmx psi logo", you get fifteen billion hits about how many pounds per square inch you need to inflate your tyres to... – David Richerby Mar 8 '19 at 19:59

    Can you post more images, of the entire frame? Maybe something else can be matched. FWIW, that looks like it might be a trident. – Andrew Henle Mar 8 '19 at 20:21

    You bought a new bike from a shop and noone knows what brand it was? Go back to the shop and ask for more information !! Read your warranty paperwork ! – Criggie Mar 8 '19 at 21:56
  • I've seen this before, I'm going to ask some friends. Maybe you could look at the bottom of the bottom bracket, sometimes the brand or model is printed there alongside the serial number. – Odyssee Mar 9 '19 at 7:18

I accidentally found the answer to this question by... listening to Judas Priest. Yep.

Here's a picture of Judas Priest "Painkiller" album cover:

You can see the exact same "double fork" imagery, which reminded me of this question I read months ago (it's actually a common logo they use, not just on that album cover).

It turns out a company named Amity did produce Judas Priest BMX frames. Here's that frame courtesy of VitalBMX:


We can see part of the logo on the second picture (I haven't found a picture of that frame from the front):

This is further confirmed by that integrated seat post clamp hole, that we see on the question's full view of the bike. It's not that common of a setup, so this + the partial view of the logo above means it's pretty much certain that...

The frame is an Amity Judas Priest Frame

    Judging from OP's account activity, I doubt they will see this answer. But I'm still posting it because I can't believe I remembered that question while listening to Metal. – Fatalize Aug 11 '19 at 18:00

    The fact that this integrated seat post clamp hole is pretty rare is what allowed the store to market it as a Total Hangover frame, because that frame is one of the very few that does have the same setup. A customer finding out that's it's actually an Amity frame is pretty unlikely (I had never heard of that brand before) – Fatalize Aug 11 '19 at 18:06
