Collateral BMX Interviews Steve Crandall of FBM
ATX_RecentRoll-655-01

I don’t post a whole lot of BMX content here on the site, but usually when I do, it’s from FBM. Why? Because Steve and his riders are living the dream and part of that is dealing with the struggles of being a company that still believes in American production.

Over on Collateral BMX, JPR interviewed Crandall and even though a lot of it is cryptic and weird, there are some gems in there:

What kinds of new products do you have coming out? Anything exciting?
Yeah, we have U.S. made in-house 8.75” and 9” FBM handlebars, Bellwitch’s are getting worked on right now, Erbles just pieced together a 650b women’s city commuter bike and Kenny’s testing a prototype frame called the Orphan, which later this summer if all things fall into place will be manufactured in-house. Then we’ll be trying to get people to buy them.

That’s the key, getting people to buy your stuff.
Seems like we could fart like ten years ago and people would pay attention and now it’s like I gotta drive a black school bus around with muppets on acid to try and get people to even notice us.

Dudes being dudes that are stoked on bikes with some Slaughterama background noise and other randomness. Solid vibes from FBM once again!

FBM: The Tiniest Gypsy

I don’t have a kid but part of me wants to buy this frame anyway, just so when I do have a kid, they’ll have a piece of American steel to ride around on. If you have a son or a daughter that could fit on this 12″ BMX from FBM, I suggest you pick it up!

See more at FBM.

It’s so nice to be able to check out vimeo now and what a video to lead into the week.

“Vagabond Ritual is an FBM feature film, with some of the most colorful characters in BMX traveling to and riding some of the best spots; Kona, Philly, NYC, Little Rock, Austin, Tucson, Sasquatch Canyon and Beyond! Get in the van and see what happens when Ruel Smith, Kenny Horton, the Ginch Bros, Jackson Allen, Eric Hennessey and the FBM crew and friends let loose on America’s freeways…”
