Sorry I’ve been MIA for the past week! Let’s get back into the swing of things with FBM’s raw edit from The Battle of Gillies Creek. You’ve probably seen it already but I wanted to get it posted up anyway. It was nothing but good times down there, and the rain held off until late afternoon before flooding the place out. I already can’t wait till next year!
Or you can wait for the production versions to drop, BUT if you want things like 3/8″ dropout slots, integrated seat clamps, gyro tab holes or seatstay brake mounts, those are only available if you pre-order. This year’s colors are clear, tractor green and trans brown, and the 2017 Steadfast frames should be shipping mid-June. Look below for the 2017 specs (production versions) and click HERE to get your pre-order on!
This totally wasn’t planned but it looks like we’re going straight from the OG generation of the Pittsburgh trails scene straight into the youngest! It’s been awesome watching the Halahans grow over the years into the rippers that they are today. I’m stoked that Mike (their dad) has been keeping them on the right track by instilling in them that it’s not just all about riding, but also about putting in work to dig and create their own trails. 9 Acres is what their calling the spot they’ve built, and Geo Jenkins put together this edit for FBM of the…
I may be a little bit biased, but in my opinion as far as BMX bikes go, trail riders have the best looking setups. For the most part you won’t find any of those quirky parts and color schemes that are often popular with our brethren who ride street and park exclusively. What you will find are bikes that tend to have a classic look and parts selection that just screams go fast and pull the fuck up. Jackson Allen’s latest FBM Steadfast build definitely fits that mold, and with the help of our friend Brian Barnhart we caught up…
Holy shit! FBM is going to be releasing a limited edition updated version of their legendary Deployer frame. While the geometry remains the same as what was found on the original Deployers, the tubing has been modernized and they’ve made sure that there’s clearance for 2.4″ tires and 33t sprockets. Speaking of sprockets, you’ll also have a chance to get a limited edition FBM X DRG Deploy Quadsaw sprocket made my the man himself, Derrick Girard. Those are ONLY available straight through FBM and with the purchase of a Deployer. They’ll be available in black or polished and in your…
Cody Diggs is an ape, there’s no question about that. This edit from FBM and Circuit BMX may only be a minute long, but that’s all you need to see to understand why Cody has become one of my favorite dudes to watch in the woods!
I meant to post this immediately following the interview we did with Derrick a few weeks back. Oh well, better late than never! If any of you had any questions as to why the term legend is attached to Derrick’s name, his part from FBM’s “All Time Low” DVD should more than answer them.
I’ve got a few things I’ve been meaning to bump back up to the top, so expect to see them resurfacing over the course of the weekend. I’m going to start things off with this edit that our man Jake Dyke put together from the footage he shot with his iPhone at The Battle of Gillies Creek while testing out a Moondog Labs Anamorphic Lens Adaptor.
There’s now one more option for all you lovers of 22″ wheels out there. FBM has gone ahead and made a scaled up 22″ version of the Steadfast frame. It’s been pretty fascinating watching the 22″ wheel segment grow and take off over the past few years. With new players like FBM and a few other companies getting into game this year, it will be interesting to see where things go. Hit the jump for the specs on the Steadfast 22″ and then make your way to the FBM site for more details.
Our man Jake Dyke whipped up this little iPhone edit from the footage he shot at The Battle of Gillies Creek while testing out the new Moondog Labs Anamorphic Lens Adaptor. Richie Sakai was kind enough sing a few bars for the intro, and of course we had to throw in a star wipe for good measure because, “why eat hamburger when you can have steak?“
