FBM delivers a perpetual sea of internet chaos with their 2014 mixtape.
FBM has been working on their Raconteur city bikes for a while now. As a small, independently owned, domestic production bicycle company, it’s hard to front all the money up front for a full size run, so they’re taking pre-orders via a Kickstarter campaign. Pricing is more than fair, at $750 for a frame and completes ranging from $1700 to $2,360 so if you want to place an order, do so now!
Expected delivery is March 2015. These look great guys!
Some dirt, some park and a girl that rips both!
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!
Prepare yourself for over three minutes of bowl jamming and Red Fang! Thanks for sharing this video Steve!
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”
