I love the vibes in this and respect the hell out of both companies involved. Making bikes and components in America ain’t easy, but they sure to make it look fun!
No one ever said it was easy to make frames in the USA. This new video from FBM showcases their framebuilding process and their new digs. Nice one guys!
The cover of the Austin Chronicle yesterday was so killer. In celebration of the X-Games, they featured Mike Santana and 9th Street. I gotta pick up a copy.
Sniped this from Mutiny’s blog.
My town is a revolving door for events and this week, the city of Austin is host to the X-Games. While I won’t be attending any of the games, I’ll be sure to swing through @DarrylNau‘s party at Holy Mountain. Here are the details:

I’m catching up on videos since going AWOL in the Oregon Outback. This is a must-see. These guys are some hometown heros, making Austin, Texas and BMX as a whole very proud. Joe Simon killed it for Oakley. Head over to Defgrip for some exceptional photos as well!
Leaving your nest ain’t easy, especially when your home town has been good to you. Hanson Little used to be a pro BMX rider – on paper – he still rips and takes trips from time to time, but his days of going big are limited by past injuries and the desire to keep on the bike, not healing off it.
Recently, Hanson bought a van and sold all of his belongings, save for a few bicycles. He plans on spending a great deal of time on the road over the next few months, but before he left town, I met up with him and shot some photos of his new mobile digs.
This weekend, I sent over some interview questions, which he promptly replied to… check them out below in a special Ride Along!
Prepare yourself for over three minutes of bowl jamming and Red Fang! Thanks for sharing this video Steve!
The latest issue of Cykeln magazine is now available for free online, featuring the Red Hook Crit, Dosnoventa and more.
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”
I love the South and FBM brings some 20″ love to it for Tioga. Also, Kenny Horton velodrome shreddddd! Don’t miss this one.
