FBM Raconteur City Bikes

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!

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