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… Continue reading FBM Deployer Reissue!
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… Continue reading Re-Up: The Battle of Gillies Creek – Anamorphic Lens Test Edit
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… Continue reading FBM Steadfast Now Available for 22″ Wheels
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… Continue reading The Battle of Gillies Creek – Anamorphic Lens Test Edit
We as trail riders have a slight tendency to ride frames and parts a lot longer than we really should. It’s nothing for someone to show up in the woods still rocking a frame with an American bottom bracket and press fit headset, (Shawn Shoener, I’m looking in your direction). The thing about it is… Continue reading 2016 Trails Frame Buyers Guide
Despite getting damn near an inch of rain yesterday, FBM’s Battle of Gillies Creek is still a go for tomorrow. Kitt and the rest of the Gillies Crew set to work getting the place back into shape as soon as the rain stopped. Last year it rained up until about 12 hours before the jam… Continue reading Reminder: The Battle of Gillies Creek
The new 2016 FBM Steadfast are here, and they are beautiful! The Steadfast has been a perfect trails machine ever since it’s inception, but FBM has somehow found a way to refine it even more with some minor tweaks to the geometry and tubing spec. The head tube angle has been steepened a quarter of… Continue reading The New 2016 FBM Steadfast
