People ask why I give FBM so much love here on the site. My answer is simple: they continue to push American production. This video from ESPN shows how Crandall and the boys keep this steel ship afloat. Head over to ESPN to check it out.

Best quote: “FBM started out as a bunch of friends hanging out… traveling and trying to do cool shit”

Things Fall Apart
Things Fall Apart-2

Sometimes, your wheels get dented or damaged beyond repair. That happened to Kyle while we were riding in Los Angeles back in January on his Stinner Mudfoot cross bike. I liked the way these three photos turned out from the aftermath.

SOLD OUT: The Radavist Talisman Pocket T-Shirt
Radavist_Pocket_Tees-1

In Elder Futhark, the rune raidō means “ride or journey”. It is the mark of the Radavist. This rune is part of the talisman logo featured on the front pocket. On the rear, the spirit animal of the Radavist, a jackal with a scarred back that walks on its tail and the motto “Rubber Side Up”.

These American Apparel pocket tees were printed using natural discharge ink at Industry Print Shop here in Austin. After a few washes, you won’t even feel where the print was. Make sure you wash them before wearing.

Scoop one up below for $25 + Shipping. Sorry, sold out…
