posted this pic of the new stem they've been working on their Facebook yesterday with the following info.
"New FBM Rise Above stem coming soon… Made In the United States of America, 51 Reach, 31 Rise angled top cap..."
Looks pretty rad if you ask me, but I do want to know if Kerry Sayre is getting royalties off of that name?
It's blurry but that's a photo of a brand new FBM
stem in the works!
Lots of FBM/Crandall related post today! Homeboy has a bike check over on QBMX where you can get a close up look at his fine looking Steadfast build. Head over THERE
and have a peek, and don't forget that we now have FBM's Steadfast in the CYDI Store
I didn’t post the first episode of this series because I’m a trails snob and there weren’t any to be found in it. It was good though, and you should check it out if you didn’t see it. This episode on the other hand has just the trails footage I was hoping for. Hit play on it and enjoy!
I still remember the first time I ever met Steve Crandall. It was at the 1997 NBL Grands and he walked up to me and said “buy this fucking video.” The video was Live Fast Die, and Steve and FBM’s antics have been keeping me entertained ever since. Here’s a little edit from the ringleader himself, keeping it simple at his trails in Richmond.
I told you that we had some big things in the works for the Can You Dig It Store
! The first of those being that we now have FBM's kick ass Steadfast CS frames available in there. It's just the first of many new items that we'll be adding to the store over the next few weeks. You'll definitely want to check back regularly to see what's new. We're also in the process of dialing in the store's aesthetics, so bear with us as things get moved around a bit.
Soul BMX Mag dropped a really good interview with Steve Crandall, aka Crandaddy, or as I like to call him Crangela. He touches on a lot of subjects including the past, present, and future of FBM. One thing that really caught my attention was when he talked about some of the innovations FBM has brought to BMX. It was a good reminder that FBM was responsible some of the things we take for granted on frames today! Head over to Soul's site
and give it a read!
wasn't able to find a means of transportation radical enough to deliver these new bars to Interbike. They feature a back friendly 13" rise and one piece construction (no welds) that has never before been attempted with any handlebars manufactured in this galaxy. No release date yet, but when they are available you'll be able to get them in any color you want as long as it's oil slick or rasta.
s new U.S. Apes handlebars are available now, and as you can tell by the name are made in the good ol' U.S. of A. They have 11 degrees of back sweep, 3 degrees of up sweep, are 29" wide, and are available with an 8.75" or 9" rise. They're made out of heat treated straight gauge .065" 4130 chromoly, and like Henry Ford's Model T, you can have them in any color you want as long as it's black. Pick some up now from your favorite FBM retailer.
Head over to the QBMX site
to check out Garrett Guilliams' fresh new FBM. You better believe that thing is going to see a lot more roast than the average bike! There are a few photos mixed in with the bike check that will show you just what I mean.
